Kangaroo Burgers Recipe

  • 2 pounds ground kangaroo meat
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/2 bunch fresh thyme
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs, or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 8 sandwich buns, split
  • 8 leaves lettuce
  • 8 thick slices tomato
  1. Mix the kangaroo, onion, caraway seed, thyme, egg, and lemon zest together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. If mixture is too wet and sticky add breadcrumbs. Shape the mixture into 8 balls and flatten.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the burgers in the hot oil until the burgers are cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 7 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Serve the burgers on the split buns with lettuce and tomato.
