    Default Kangaroo mince

    Usually make spag Bol with beef, but thought I would try to be healthier and try kangaroo mince tonight.

    has anyone done this before? Did it taste any different? Was the texture any different? Did it taste the same, but still weird you out knowing it was kangaroo?

    It tastes fine.

    My partner is a whinger, and he doesn't know when I've switched the mince (he would refuse to eat it if he knew).

    I don't like the kangaroo steaks, because they are very strong-flavoured and gamey, but the mince with the tomato sauce... it's not really much different. If anything, the tomato taste tends to be a bit richer in flavour, which is nice.

    I think of Roo mince as dog food only cause mum used to cook up a big batch for our dog and it stank! Having said that I've never actually eaten it ( the thought of the smell haunts me!) but I've eaten roo sausages and with a good dose of tomato sauce I wouldn't of know any different.

    Good to hear.

    figured by the time I add tomato paste, garlic, herbs etc it'll be fine

    I've only tried Kangaroo meat once. It was steak and was so velvety, but I just could not get my head around actually eating a Kangaroo, iykwim :/ So couldn't just tuck in and enjoy it, could only manage to eat a small amount, which is a shame because it's very lean and not bad tasting.
    Not sure what it tastes like in a spaghetti sauce- had mine with balsamic dressing, served on grilled eggplant with mash and salad.

    I love kangaroo! The roasts are beautiful.

    Kangabangas are a bit strong in flavour but I slice them for omelette etc.

    Glad you enjoyed!

    I can't remember who said but why can you eat other meat and not think 'OMG it's a cow' but think OMG it's a kangaroo lol?
