yes. another culinary experiment. I've cooked 'roo a few times with good success, but never bought 'roo mince before. sincde we all missed our weekly pizza night last night, tonight I've been experimenting. having decided to make 'roo pizza, I did a search on the net, only to find a million foreigners blogging abouteating kangaroo pizza downunder (along with other exotic treats) at gourmet restaurants, but no recipes!
and of course, none of them would have been using mince! I have a few ideas about what to do with 'real' roo meat, but that's not what was on hand.
I also wanted to try something veg with an indian twist.
so... half of tonight's pizza has 'roo mince and is based on the lebanese pizza recipe. the difference is that I didnt use cinnamon, have put lots of fresh basil on top and sprinkled sugar and maggie beer's vino cotto. oh, and added some sweet chilli sauce - the one thing I gained from the net search. not sure, something fruitier might have been better, but I wanted tang rather than something to compete with the pomegranat syrup.
the veg side has grilled eggplant, fried sweet potato "chips", grilled capsicum strips, sliced leeks... and mango chutney (mainly the big mango chunks from the bottle with dabs of the sauce) and also sprinkled sugar and vino cotto. I've also sprinkled sumac over the whole thing.
yes, everything would have been much better smoked with charcoal - next time.
we'll have yoghurt for the veg side and sour cream to put on the roo side after its cooked.
off to put it in the oven......
