  • 1 pound Kangaroo mince
  • ½ medium onion finely sliced
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 big pinch rosemary or thyme
  • ½ medium lemon rind of lemon, or lime – finely grated
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1 pinch salt to taste
  • 1 pinch pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch spices to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small bag flaxseed or breadcrumbs for firmness
  • 1 small jar Vegemite


  • Mix the mince, onion, egg, rind, garlic, herbs and spices together in a bowl. Add some olive oil to moisten.
  • To make a Kangaroo burger extra Australian, you can use Vegemite in your burger mix. Add a ½tablespoon, or to taste. It complements the flavour of the Kangaroo.
  • If the burger mix is too wet, add flaxseed or breadcrumbs to the firm. Flaxseed is a healthy alternative to breadcrumbs, but either can be used – in moderation.
  • Separate mix into six individual mounds. Flatten to the desired size. Let it sit at room temperature for a couple of minutes.
  • Heat a frypan to medium to high and oil. Once the pan is hot, add burger mounds and fry until cooked. Cooking time depends on burger thickness but should be 5 to 10 minutes. Flip burgers during the process to ensure an even cook. Alternatively, consider a quality contact grill for more hassle-free and healthy burger cooking.
  • Serve on a toasted bun with condiments of your choice. Possibilities range from bacon, lettuce and tomato to plum sauce, shiitake mushrooms and pine nuts.
