Yes it is really different... there is bugger all fat in the meat. I had mine with some friends out bush... bush tucker
You sure are making that roo meat sound good! I was afraid it might be strong, gamey or otherwise undesirable.
I was thinking again about the vegetarians and their solution. Stop eating all meat, plant the world to food crops and you can feed everyone.
Well, a lot of the stuff that cows and other rumenants eat are not edible to humans and would otherwise go to waste. Also rumenants graze areas that
would or could never be cultivated such as ranch land and scrub areas.
In the country where I spent a year in Africa a lot of the high quality protein in their diet came from grazing animals and most of the area they
grazed was wasteland otherwise. I would guess 1/3 to 1/2 the protein.
Also, generally, animal protein is much higher quality and better balanced in amino acids that plant protein. Plant protein needs to be doctored up to
be utilizable ie. add this or that amino acid like taurine.
So.. if we could just stop that nasty methane by product production we'd have the perfect food animal!
