This delicious recipe is a great introduction to kangaroo if you have been nervous to try. Kangaroo is a lean, cheap, healthful source of red meat readily available in most supermarkets.

The combination of tomato, cinnamon and outback spice is a great flavour combination and gives a subtle almost sweet flavour to the mince.  When served with slices of pink grapefruit the citrus from this and lemon myrtle cuts through the richness of the mince and gives you that gourmet experience. This winter warmer is definitely one to add to your MP repertoire.
