Jicama Slaw and Kangaro Tacos

IMG_2530I have an amazing group of friends that have always encouraged me to try something new and be creative. Plus they love to eat which make it easy to please them them all. This past weekend we created a meat day. 7 courses of various meats, fun sides and great drinks.

Meat Day 2013 Menu:

Wild Boar Prosciutto with Melon

Frog Legs Grilled

Elk Sausage and Peppers

Kobe Hot Dogs

Camel Meat Sauce

Kangaroo Tacos (Recipe Below)

Chocolate Covered Bacon (recipe in a later post)

The Kangaroo tacos came out great and I wanted to share the recipe. The meat was very lean and it became a super healthy dish. Substituting turkey meat would work just as great!


1 Pound ground kangaroo (or turkey)

1 Pack GF taco seasoning

1 Onion Chopped

1 Red Tomato Chopped

1 tsp Salt

Juice of 1 Lime

1 Pack corn tortillas


Jicama Slaw Ingredients:

1 Pound Jicama peeled and finally chopped

2 Carrots Grated

1 Red Pepper Graded

Juice of 1 Lime

1tsp Salt

2 Tbs Honey

1/2 Cup Mint Chopped

1/2 Cilantro Chopped

Start by browning onion in a well sprayed pot. Once it is half way translucent and meat, tomato and season. Continue to mix while meat browns. Now add juice of one lime and cook covered on low for 15 minutes.

While meat cooks put together the slaw. I  a large bowl add carrots, pepper, jicama, cilantro, mint and salt. Mix well and then add lime juice and honey. Mix together and store in fridge until ready to eat.

To serve heat corn tortilla and add 2 spoons of meat, guac and a nice helping of slaw. Enjoy
