Ingredients

Kangaroo patties

  • 500 g kangaroo mince.
  • 1/2 brown onion, finely diced.
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced.
  • 3 thyme stalks, leaves pick and stems discarded (or 1 teaspoon dried thyme).
  • 1/2 cup almond meal.
  • 1 egg.
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • olive oil, to fry.

Apple, Fennel + Celery Slaw

  • 1 celery stick, thinly sliced into matchsticks.
  • 1/2 fennel bulb, finely sliced into matchsticks.
  • 1 small green apple, finely sliced into matchsticks.
  • 1-2 tablespoon full-fat whole egg mayonnaise.
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice.
  • 2 tablespoons fennel fronds.
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to season.

To serve

  • 4 sourdough bread rolls, cut in half.
  • 100 g goat's feta.
  • 1 cup rocket leaves.

Directions

1. First make the slaw. Slice all the vegetables and combine all ingredients for the slaw together in a mixing bowl. Toss to combine and set aside.

2. To make the burgers, add all ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Mix with your hands until well combined. Shape mixture into four thick equal-sized patties.

3. To cook, heat oil in a fry pan on medium-high heat. Place patties into the fry pan for 5 minutes on each side. Remove patties from the pan and place on a plate covered with foil for 5-10 minutes. This will cook them through perfectly!

4. Spread each bun base with a layer of goats cheese and ¼ cup rocket leaves. Top with kangaroo patty and finish with Fennel, Apple + Celery Slaw.


Note

Don’t have access to kangaroo meat where you are? No worries, just swap it for lamb of beef mince.
