Native-Spiced BBQ Kangaroo with Chips

Print is recipe

This recipe is the ultimate Aussie BBQ dish (with a few added extras). For the BBQ spice rub, I’ve done a combination of some of our native herbs and spices as well as a few classic staples like cumin and paprika. It may seem like there are a few ingredients going into the rub, but each ingredient brings a super fragrant, unique flavor that all work so well together. Plus, all of these herbs and spices come in handy snap-seal packaging so can be stored for a long time to come so you can make this again and again, plus try your hand at some of our many Native recipes!

Serve this Aussie steak and chips take with a fresh green salad or zesty slaw.

Spices used in this recipe


  1. Rub kangaroo steaks with olive oil and rub with 1tbspn of spice mix, place on a plate covered with plastic wrap and allow to marinate for 30 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile for the chips, coat them in olive oil and plenty of salt and pepper and lay out in a single layer on a lined baking sheet. Place in a preheated 220 degree oven and cook for 25-30 mins or until golden outside and cooked inside.

  3. Once they’re done marinating, place the steaks on the barbecue grill or fry pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on either side depending on the thickness, for medium-rare.
    Remove and place on a plate allowing to rest. Serve with chips and a side salad and enjoy!
