A compendium of juicy, succulent kangaroo meatballs, a rich tomato and native peppery sauce, and fragrant native herbs, makes this the perfect comfort food for a cosy night in! The mix of native herbs in this dish compliment the rich, lean kangaroo meat perfectly and brings together a delicious mix of Aussie heroes for one delicious dish.

I use kangaroo mice here to not only keep with the Aussie flavours, but I love its rich flavour and it’s a great source of lean protein that’s choc-full of iron.

Serve these decadent meatballs with mashed potato and lashings of its pepper sauce!
