“I got this recipe at a local Farmers market, but have modified slightly. The recipe use sous vide method to cook the meat but as most of us don't have a vaccum packing machine in our kitchens I have gone for an easier option. You could substitute venison, as kangaroo is rather strong very dark meat, so I think the flavours would work well with venison too. If you can get the porcini and morel mushrooms fresh use about 100g of each. This”
