Kangaroo Fillets & Pickled Cucumber Salad (BBQ Week)

BBQ Week: 29th May to 4th June


Kangaroo fillets with pickled cucumber salad
(It’s not every day we get to type that!)

We do have an Australian in the Uuni team and when we heard about this dish we weren’t quite sold on it… until now. Hands down one of the best cuts of meat we’ve ever tried. Kangaroo meat is readily available in most Australian supermarket chains and when we found that Kezie Foods were a UK supplier we had to try it out!

In case you were wondering (it was the first question we asked), Kangaroo meat is wild and procured under a strict quota system, with over 3 million more Kangaroos in Australia than people! Although we still feel a little funny eating the national emblem, Kangaroo meat is a great source of protein and impressively low in fat, with only 2%. It’s also easy to cook and is seriously tasty.

Ingredients
Kangaroo fillets, coated in a dry BBQ rub
2 large cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
Salt and ground pepper, to season


Pickled Cucumber Salad
For only 4 ingredients and throwing them all into the one bowl, this is a surprising lovely light summer side dish that is the perfect accompaniment to a strong gamey meat. As above, literally, throw it all in, give it a mix and you’re done! 
Kangaroo Fillets
Prepare fillets with choice of rub or seasoning, including a splash of olive oil. Cook on a sizzler pan until desired degree of doneness (yes, that’s the actual term for it!), rotating 2 or 3 times. The below fillets were cooked in 3-4 minutes. As with most lean meats, it is easy to overcook so don’t be afraid to remove it early and let it sit for a few minutes, as it will continue to cook through.

Want to try cooking your own Kangaroo fillets? We let Kezie Foods know what we were up to for BBQ Week and they’ve given the Uuni Community a discount code: UUNI10  to be used at www.keziefoods.co.uk! (UK shipping only – sorry!)

Just in case you didn’t know…..

To celebrate BBQ Week, we’re giving 3 lucky WINNERS a chance to score themselves a selection of prizes including an exotic meat hamper from Kezie Foods and a range of accessories for your Uuni.

How to enter? Simply share your own UUNI X BBQ dish on our Facebook wall or send it to hello@uuni.net by Monday, June 5th. 3 winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 7th.

Uunified Lamb Cutlets

The first Uuni Sizzler Pans have been delivered and it’s time to get cooking!

If you’re using the Uuni Sizzler Pan for the first time, don’t forget to follow our care instructions to ensure your pan is seasoned correctly. This will keep your pan looking and cooking well for years to come.

We’ll be sizzling more over the coming weeks however we’re starting with our favourite:
Lamb cutlets!

Getting started: Sizzling is straight forward. Always pre heat your pan in the Uuni for 1-2 minutes. The pan can be placed straight onto your aluminium or stone base, depending on the model.

Prepping the cutlets: We started off with a rack of lamb which was then sliced into individual pieces. Rub olive oil, salt and pepper (or your preferred seasoning) into each piece.Uuni-June2016-3470

Cooking: Load the cutlets into your pre heated pan and place in the centre of the oven.

At approximately 350˚C/662˚F, the cutlets were cooked perfectly in 8 minutes. Be sure to turn them over half way through.

Cooking times will vary, depending on the temperature of your Uuni.

To finish: Try plating up the cutlets with a side of Tzatziki and cucumber for a sizzling summer feast.

Classic Pepperoni Pizza

This is the most popular pizza of all time! It’s not to be messed with…

(BUT if you have a penchant for spicy food and you do fancy messing with it. I would say that our Diablo Pizza recipe would be the perfect place to start!)

Recipe
Classic dough
Classic sauce
Pepperoni slices
Mozzarella, sliced
Handful of fresh basil to garnish

Method
First, get your Uuni fire going.
While the fire is heating up, flour your pizza peel and spread your classic dough over the top.
Cover with the classic sauce, followed by your sliced mozzarella.
Finally, add your pepperoni slices and slide the pizza into the oven.
Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat.
Season with cracked black pepper and garnish with some fresh basil.
