The Kangaroo has long been a symbol of Australian pride, but it is quickly becoming a staple of the Australian diet. High in protein and low in fat it is a superb meat to include in your weekly shop. Here is one of my favourites to throw in the lunch box - my BBQ Roo Wrap!


  • 1 Kangaroo Fillet (around 300g)
  • 2 pieces of rye mountain bread
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 1/2 tomato, sliced
  • 1/4 spanish onion
  • 4 slices of canned beetroot
  • 2 slices of reduced fat cheese
  • 2 teaspoons of BBQ sauce (optional)


  1. Heat your pan till very hot, and cook kangaroo fillet for 3-4 minutes each side
  2. Remove kangaroo from the heat and set aside to rest for 5 minutes while you spread your bread with avocado
  3. Using a sharp knife, slice fillet into thin slices
  4. Divide the tomato, onion, beetroot and cheese in even quantities, and place on pieces of bread, before adding your slices of kangaroo fillet.  
  5. Roll up your wraps and place in a sandwich press, cooking until golden
