Exotic Meat

Kangaroo Fillet with Prune Sauce


For:
4 servings

Time:
50 minutes

Difficulty:
easy




You need:

250 g snowpeas, 4 kangaroo fillets, olive oil, salt and pepper, 1.5 tablespoon butter, red pepper in julienne, water
prune sauce 200 g prunes, 15 cl water, 10 cl port wine, 80 g brown sugar, 70 g raspberry jelly, 15 g chili sauce, 2 cl white vinegar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, salt, pepper


Technical Stages:

Prune sauce: Poach the prunes in water with the Port wine and sugar. When cooked, puree. Add the other ingredients and cook over low heat until thick.
Season and keep warm.

Kangaroo: Prepare the peas, removing the strings and cooking them a l'anglaise. Refresh.

In a large pan, cook the fillets in olive oil for 5 minutes approximately, depending on the size of the fillets. Keep warm (it is important to let the meat sit for as long as it cooked).

Saute the snowpeas in a bit of water and butter. Season to taste.

Serving: Arrange the meat on a warm plate with a bit of prune sauce and decorate with a julienne of red pepper. ;)

Selma,
Not sure if there is a Papa John's around here.
I'll have to check! Sounds good going down. :)

As far as I'm concerned, you may favorably mention any Papa John's pizza! Regular crust, extra sauce, please.

The best pizza anywhere is in NYC.
They don't make it well here on Long Island.
I miss the days I worked in the city.
There were so many places to get good pizza!

The Original Rays was one of my favorites.

last thing first. In a word....yes :D .
lioness, I know how trying it is to explain to left coasters and left of the Poconos folks about stuff like 'the water's not right so the crust can't be right (or the bread in the case of a cheesesteak). Folks in San Diego have water that looks yellow in a clear glass, is attracted by magnets, and wreaks havoc with anyone foolish or unfortunate enough to still have metal parts in their plumbing systems. Half of them use some sort of filter or buy the stuff in a bottle but tell them the water quality makes a difference in the dough and this glazed uncomprehending look takes over their faces as they look to the framed 'We don't care how you do it in New York City!'posters that adorn small business walls.

Then when you take them to NYC (also known as the Gates of Hell to many of them) and show them water that is clear in a clear glass and doesn't rattle when the glass is shaken they immediately feel you've played some sort of parlor trick on them.

I try to take them to Bronx Pizza up on Washington Ave when I'm home in CA but even they can't get it exactly right because the water isn't right. If you're in SD don't call Bronx Pizza and ask them to deliver because they will (politely) laugh at you. While they will box a pizza for you to take home they don't even like to do that because of the changes that take place in the box during travel. Other places produce something that resembles NY style pizza and is often quite delicious but NOTHING is the same. (Do I have time to start ranting about the sauce, cheese, and oven dimensions and temperatures?....No?....well perhaps it's for the best then...)

We do have Papa John's in our neighborhood, but we've found that if we're going to have someone else make our pizza (and my wife's pizza sauce is delicious, especially when you consider the fact that she's Irish), we get it from a place called Vocelli.

In Orange, there was a place right on the corner of Tustin and Chapman (well known to anyone living within 20 miles in any direction) called Northwoods. Good stuff, but I've heard they are no longer in business.

1. If you can't see it in the glass, is it really water?

2. Of course we run it through a filter. Gotta remove the dead frogs somehow.

3. How could this possibly make any difference to the pizza crust?

4. There's a place in Ellay that's reputed to import water from the Hudson, but I don't believe it.

CG, you are too funny sometimes!! :p
glad you were able to have some good pizza out there. i'm jonsin' bretty bad over here.

as for the sauce... vinegar is NOT an acceptable ingredient. i don't know why people are compelled to do so. neither is addt'l water. sauce needs to be eaten, not slurped through a straw. and believe me when i say there is more to it than tomato paste and garlic. trust me on that one!!

as for the cheese... nah, i can't even go there. i am lucky enough to have a real Italian deli near me so i am able to find excellent cheeses. :luck:

It's the best!
