Skippy

Hitting the new year resolutions head on. Felix is studying Australia at school at the moment so it seems fitting to cook him some kangaroo.

I’ve eaten it in Australia before, but I don’t believe I’ve ever actually cooked with it.

We’ve managed to source some leg steaks and the plan is to give them 3-4 minutes each side on a stinking hot griddle pan. Most importantly, the steaks are going to get a good rest for 5-10 minutes under foil as I’m expecting the meat to be relatively tough due to all the work those muscles do.

High in protein, low in fat and just a touch gamey (I’d say it has the slightest ‘liver’ flavour to it).

Surprisingly good and a definite thumbs up from all the family.

Given we’re on the Australia theme we may as well do it properly and open a bottle of Peter Lehmann Shiraz. Stunning, stunning wine that certainly stands up to Skippy.
