Kangaroo Stew Recipe

Kangaroo stew is a traditional Australian dish that's hearty and flavorful. Here's a basic kangaroo stew recipe for you to try:


  • 500g kangaroo meat, cubed
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups beef or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup red wine (optional)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a camp oven or large pot, heat the olive oil over the campfire or portable stove.
  2. Add the kangaroo meat and brown it on all sides. Remove and set aside.
  3. Add the chopped onions and minced garlic to the pot. Sauté until the onions are translucent.
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the onions and garlic, and stir to combine.
  5. Add the browned kangaroo meat back to the pot. Mix well.
  6. Pour in the red wine (if using) to deglaze the pan, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom.
  7. Add the sliced carrots, diced potatoes, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper to the pot.
  8. Pour in the beef or vegetable broth, ensuring that the ingredients are covered with liquid.
  9. Bring the stew to a simmer. If using a camp oven, place coals on the lid.
  10. Let the stew simmer for about 1-2 hours, or until the kangaroo meat is tender.
  11. Check the seasoning and adjust with additional salt and pepper if needed.

Serve the kangaroo stew hot, perhaps with some fresh bread or damper (traditional Australian campfire bread). This recipe is a basic guideline, and you can customize it by adding other vegetables like peas, corn, or mushrooms, and adjusting the seasoning to your taste.
