African Tilapia Stew

This African Tilapia Stew recipe comes straight from my wife, her own version of a nationally popular stew. My wife is a native Ghanaian, who is from the Volta Region, where this stew is popular. It is one of my absolute favorite dishes to come out of Ghana. I hope you and your family and friends will enjoy African Tilapia Stew as much as I do!

Strange Grilled Meats: Kangaroo Meat

Kangaroo Meat

I was searching for some unique, even “strange” ethnic recipes to share here during the recent summer grilling months. A Google search for “Strange Grilled Meats” led me to a recipe that I modified just a tad, but still using the same meats:

Ostrich, Emu, and/or Kangaroo steaks.

Now I know, to Australians, these are probably not considered strange grilled meats, not even in the least. But to us living here in North America, yes … plopping steaks from those animals on the barbie certainly falls under the category of-

Strange Grilled Meats!

I haven’t tried the ostrich or emu yet, but I did order some kangaroo steaks. Actually, I purchased some boneless Kangaroo loin meat, and sliced several thick steaks off of it.

I marinated them according to the recipe below, grilled them up medium rare, and let me tell you … delicious!

So good in fact, I decided I’m going to try out the same marinade/recipe with ostrich and emu, too. But for right now, on this post, the following is how I prepared my Kangaroo steaks.

Okay, you say, enough chit chat … how about getting into the recipe, Old Silly?

And fine, I say, that is exactly what I’m about to do, next up on this Strange Grilled Meats post …

Indian Bhuna Gosht

Indian Bhuna Gosht is an exceptional curried lamb main course. It is the “Bhuna” that makes it so special. Bhuna consists of pan-frying the lamb along with certain spices. Because the meat is cooked in its own juices, Indian Bhuna Gosht is a deep, richly flavored dish. It will take you a while to prepare, but believe me, the sitting down to eat part at the end of your labor is well worth it.

English Bangers and Mash is also a South African favorite; they developed a taste for the dish during Great Britain’s 100+ years of Imperial rule. But this is the original, authentic and traditional British version – English Bangers and Mash. It is also very often served with green peas (as seen in the picture) so feel free to add some freshly steamed peas to the dish before serving, if you like.
