Cook it like you would a rump steak. It can be as red as beef can and still be very edible.

Is it like flank steak? My family had a kick-ass flank steak marinade recipe and we ate that all the time till other people found out how to cook it well and the price rose.

Beware of the low fat content which means it dries out and gets tough easily. Most people recommend searing or browning meat all over first to lock in the juices. I would pan brown it before roasting.

Here are some cooking times

These guys suggest soaking it in oil first. never tried that but perhaps virgin olive oil wouldn't kill your health benefits too much.

I second BS's post. Whenever we make it as a chunky-ass-steak-made-of-yummy we seal it, then oven roast it.

(Upon my cousin saying I could be poisoned by parasites if I ate raw roo meat)

"How stupid do you think I am? Consuming RAW flesh?"

(Traditionally, the roo is eviscerated, then stuffed with herbs and spices, then the sweetbreads placed back in. Cook in a bark oven in intense heat and serve, with the sweetbreads going to sick people and guests")

When a roo hits you with its forelegs, is that considered a kick?

They look pretty handy.

How strong are kangaroos ? The rear legs look powerful, I suppose they'd have to be. Are they a danger to an unarmed human ?

Tell the truth.
Either:

1) you aren't going to cook it

-or-

2) It isn't "Roo" but a latex Jenna Jameson "device"

I'd put their mass and foreleg kicking ability at around a mid to large deer. Back leg would be more like a horse, but how often do they buck and kick with their rear legs?

Oh just watched it, they do kick more, but they're a lot smaller than I thought, more like antelope sized or a big dog. That movement with the tail as a support is otherworldly. For a moment I was looking for strings on a marionette.

they will kick the shit out of you. red kangaroos (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f1/Red_kangaroo_-_melbourne_zoo.jpg) are the biggest, males can be 85kg and over 6 feet tall.

check out this poor pom:

And you let your government take your guns away whilst these creatures are around ?

Insanity.

oh, i forgot to tell a story.

mum says that when she was a kid, her father decided that he wanted to kill a big roo with a knife. he had it trapped between himself and a dam. during the struggle, the roo tried to drown grandad by pulling him to the water and holding him under.

don't know if that's actually what happened, or if it just looked that way to her. perhaps the thing was just fighting for its life and climbing on top.

the guns we're allowed to use deal with these savage beasts just fine.

How intelligent are they ?

danno
12th September 09, 08:15 PM
hmm. i'd say they're pretty bright as far as grazing animals go, so smarter than sheep and cattle. maybe as smart as a horse (?), but not as smart as a dog.

haven't really seen people attempt to train them for any purpose, which might have been a good measuring stick.

they're social animals which usually means smarter. and i've seen a pet roo that liked to lie on the couch and watch TV.

Skippy was one smart animal.

Emus scare me more than roos. There's something about those fuckers that just looks damn sinister.

I read in my youth that roos and deer can't be put in the same space because the way the roos hop looks like a challenge and threat to deer, and they'll counter-attack.

Did your ghost type that post? Because if that wasn't a stuffed roo you must be dead.

Back leg would be more like a horse, but how often do they buck and kick with their rear legs? Often. Very often. They lean on their tails and kick with their hind legs. It's their cross in the jab-cross combo. That's their most dangerous attack. They have pointy claws.


Oh just watched it, they do kick more, but they're a lot smaller than I thought, more like antelope sized or a big dog. That movement with the tail as a support is otherworldly. For a moment I was looking for strings on a marionette.Depends on the type of kangaroo breed. Some kangaroos are as tall/taller than people as Danno noted.


Skippy was one smart animal.

Emus scare me more than roos. There's something about those fuckers that just looks damn sinister. Emus are creepy fucking things. There's something about a bird being as tall as I am and significantly faster that creeps me out.

Aren't you coloreds in tune with nature and things like emus and witchetty grubs?

I'm 31/32nds not in tune with nature. So one in 32 emus would just as quickly attack me as look at me.

That's a lot of emus, son.
