Kangaroo with Kiwi, Cashew Nuts and Dates

Ingredients (Serves 4):

  • 750g Osgrow kangaroo fillet or steak
  • 2 x kiwis,
  • 12 x dates: natural
  • 100g of cashew nuts

Season the kangaroo meat with salt and pepper to taste. While frying the meat until medium fried, finely chop fifty grams of the nuts and four dates.
