Wylde thyme crusted kangaroo
4×150g loin or tenderloin fillets or rump
5g Wylde thyme
2 cloves garlic, crushed
250ml canola oil
Lightly season the roo with some of the Wylde thyme and salt and place into a stainless steel or glass bowl. Add the crushed garlic and cover the meat with oil. Leave to marinate at chill temperature for at least two hours although the roo will improve in gaminess and texture over the next three months when stored in this manner.
To cook, remove the meat from the oil and allow to drain. Sear both sides of the meat in a hot frying pan cooking each side for 60 seconds and finish to doneness (still rare in the middle) by turning the meat once more each side. remove from the heat and season with the remaining Wylde thyme. Leave to rest in a warm place before serving.
