For whatever reason I find the MuscleFood exotic meats range particularly appealing.
Ezra Pound might have inferred that’s because being amid the primal things lends life more urgency and meaning.
But I’m more inclined to think it’s because the idea of swanning around in leopardskin pants, making fires and bonking Raquel Welch sounds like the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
With this in mind I recently placed a MuscleFood order so gigantic I wouldn’t be surprised if a few more animals were promoted to the endangered species list next year.
Just a thought – maybe the bottom three endangered animals every year should face a relegation playoff?
Could spice things up a bit…
First up, I decided to try MuscleFood’s Kangaroo Fillet Steaks.
Roo meat has a superb nutritional profile, plus I always hated Skippy the Bush Kangaroo as a child, so the idea of barbecuing the big eared fucker seemed decidedly agreeable.
MuscleFood sell Kangaroo meat in 2 x 5oz (125g) fillet steaks – which will set you back a mere £6.
The nutritional stats are as follows:
|Nutrient||Per serving||Per 100g|
This high protein, low fat, low carb profile is the perfect recipe for ultra-lean muscle gains!
In fact, kangaroo meat is perhaps one of the healthiest meats in the world, being 98% fat free and very low in cholesterol.
It’s also rammed full of iron (one serving provides 55% of your RDA) and is super high in Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), a fatty acid which is well-know for its health benefits.
Now I’ve eaten kangaroo steak once before.
To my knowledge, I might add.
If respected global retailers have been feeding me horse meat unannounced, god know’s what Abra Kebabra have been putting in their food.
On that occasion I wasn’t bowled over, however this was 5am in some dodgy backstreet restaurant in Sydney and I was severely inebriated, so this was hardly a credible litmus test.
But these MuscleFood fillet steaks, on the other hand, were unquestionably divine.
They were tender, juicy and utterly delicious.
A lot of value-for-money meat ends up dry, tough and shrivelled – think Bob Geldof’s ballbag post-bath – but these kangaroo steaks really were fine cuts of meat.
As mentioned above, you can get 2 x 125g Kangaroo Fillet Steaks for £6 at MuscleFood.com.
This works out at £3 a serving, and you can also save more money by ordering in bulk.
This is very inexpensive and certainly cheaper than beef.
This is essentially a recipe I’ve nicked off Jamie Oliver’s 30 Minute Meal series and substituted in kangaroo.
I’m loath to credit him after the cunt got Turkey Twizzlers banned, but his sweet potato mash is bloody brilliant.
This dish is high in protein and nutrients and low in fat and carbs – a clean, healthy, tasty treat.
1) Marinade kangaroo steaks with the BBQ sauce and leave to soak for as long as desired.
2) Wash sweet potatoes and trim off the gnarly bits. Chop them in half and whack them into a microwaveable bowl along with half a lime and a sprinkling of salt. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and microwave them on full power for 12-14 minutes (or until cooked through).
3) Heat a griddle pan over a high heat and then cook the kangaroo steaks (2-3 minutes each side).
4) Chuck the asparagus tips into a pan of boiling hot water and cook for 4-5 minutes.
5) Remove the sweet potatoes and mash them up on a chopping board along with 1 tbsp mango chutney, chopped coriander, chopped chili, 1/2 lime juice, salt and pepper.
6) Season asparagus with olive oil, salt and pepper.
7) Consume voraciously – like Luis Suarez at a dinner bash hosted by Hannibal Lector.
MuscleFood’s kangaroo steak fillets are a tasty, inexpensive and novel alternative to more conventional meats.
They’re also ultra lean and packed full of nutritional goodies, making them the ideal addition to any bodybuilder’s diet.
So clear your freezer of all those ice cream tubs and stock up on some of this high-quality roo meat right away!
