Kangaroo on beetroot mash with artichokes, salad & plum sauce

Published : June 30, 2015

This is a great dish using the products that our wonderful country has supplied us. The strength of the kangaroo is balanced out perfectly by the sweetness of the beetroot mash, the tartness of the Illawarra plum sauce and the freshness of the beetroot leaves. The kangaroo should not be cooked past medium-rare as it will dry out and toughen up if cooked for too long. Ideally we should be eating it rare.

800g kangaroo loin
2 handfulls of Swiss chard (beetroot leaves)
600g peeled potatoes
200g peeled beetroot
6 artichoke hearts


200g plums
70ml balsamic vinegar
70ml red wine
1/2 cup brown sugar
pinch of salt


Boil the potatoes and beetroot separately until they show no resistance when poked with a knife.
Mash together, season with salt and pepper and some butter.
Grill the artichokes and the kangaroo for 3 minutes on each side until medium-rare.

To make the sauce, cook the plums in a saucepan with the vinegar and red wine until the liquid has reduced to 1/4 of its original volume.
Add the sugar and cook slowly for a further 10 minutes. You may need to add a couple of tablespoons of water if the sauce is looking too dry. Season with the salt.

To serve, place the mash in the middle of the plate. Surround the mash with 3 artichoke halves and top with the leaves.
Place the kangaroo on top and drizzle with the Illawarra Plum sauce. Enjoy!
