Environmentalism so good you can taste it!

Aussies are being encouraged to eat camels and kangaroos. If you're wondering how to cook it, I'm told that kangaroo is a very lean red meat, and I'd guess that camel is about the same. Cook it using one of your favorite recipes for venison.

If you don't have a good recipe for venison, here are a couple of recommendations:

1. Lots of garlic and a bit of salt and pepper in a slower cooker works great, or at 250F in a dutch oven with a touch of water. Cook to taste.

2. A wonderful marinade for steaks is Italian dressing with a touch of brown sugar and soy sauce. An added blessing is that if you throw them on a hot grill, a cloud of steam can be thrown off that will cause your neighbors to wonder if they should call the fire department. (guilty)

3. Slow cooking in a barbeque sauce.

4. Ground venison/camel/kangaroo is an excellent protein for chili and spaghetti.

My apologies, of course, for taking this prototypically feminine blog into the masculine regime of cooking. I hope you will forgive me.

Still 65% chance that you've been getting in touch with your feminine (but not better) half... ;^)

It was only 64% until you and Gino commented! :^)

Here I go masculinizing everything...

I've only ever been blessed with one venison steak at a time, having no hunters in my immediate family. I've found it makes an excellent stroganoff.

I'd get more in touch with my feminine side if it wasn't for the restraining order.

Don't let it bother you. Didn't you notice it took a second for it to figure out the gender? It didn't even bother to read your blog.
