I'd be tempted to slice off a thin layer of each, stack them all up and pound them together, roll them all up into a log, smoke-cure it, and cut the log into little pinwheel slices, drizzled with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a little red wine....

...and with my luck it'd all taste like chicken.

Grats, hope you enjoy it, looks like a whole lot of fun coming up in your kitchen.

One question though, when have you got the colonic irrigation booked for ? You have more red meat there than I would eat in a year...

I'd be more worried about sending in the teams of tiny elfs to chisel the cholesterol out of the arteries, but, see, some of us still have that Neanderthal gene that allows us to eat an entire zebra in one sitting and then, five days later when we recover, go run down another one.

This just looks like breakfast to me.

Colonic is directly after my pedicure and intensive face moisturisation treatment. Both of which are slated for right after I get back from going to the moon. :)

A lot of this meat is exactly the kind of meat that ancient humans would have eaten - african savannah meat. This whole lot is less than a single kill's worth. Anyway, if red meat is going to kill me, I'm going to die fat and happy. And probably smoking.

At least it's not stuffed full of hormones and brine and preservatives and colouring and god knows what else the supermarkets slather their meat in.

That first comment cracks me up. Met a girl last year who was gobsmacked that her last BF didn't moisturise...

Heartily agree with the rest of the post. If I am going to do red meat go for this lot and eat it as raw as you can cope with..

Saved your previous linkie and will be placing my own order soon enough.

Around here we call "intensive face moisturization treatment" "waterboarding". In Japan, I guess it's bukkake.

a word like that led to much hilarity and victimisation in the playground if you had to admit that you didn't know what it means.

This is wrong...

I like my meat but crocodile and kangaroo??

mat says:

what's wrong about it? Are chickens, cows, baby sheeps and pigs somehow special, and no other animals should be killed for food?

In the (southern coastal) US, alligators are finally prevalent enough to be nuisances. Also, they make a damned fine sausage.

Not quite docile enough for easy farming, though.

Where my parents live, there are more deer than people. If the county issued two deer to put in the freezer to every family every November, no one would go hungry and there'd still be plenty running around and bumping into cars...

I hear kangaroo are like that, too. Emus, in some places.

When we start growing our meat in vats, we're going to have to ramp up a few species of large predators to pick up the slack.

If I was Science I'd be working on bringing back those gigantic prehistoric sloths, the house sized ones.

Not for any real reason, just cos that'd be cool

Laszlo Q. V. St-J. Xalieri says:

A lot of good eating on one of those. And afterwards you can make a little cabin from the ribcage....

then we'll only have to invent fire and we're set.

Cool!(I hope) all fresh?

We stayed in a hotel in Ross on Wye for a week earlier this year. The proprietor was a big South African who did all the cooking too.
We had Crocodile steaks, Springbok, Gnu, Impala, Ostrich, all that kind of stuff. It was all XL-ent.
Wanted to stay another week so we could make our way through the whole menu.

I have to say i find the typical British view on what can be killed for meat very odd, why not eat santa's little helpers?

Laszlo Q. V. St-J. Xalieri says:

... are we talking reindeer or elfs? I'm all for the reindeer, but elfs are likely to be stringy and tough (from all their hard work) and not likely to have much meat on them.

I'd imagine the ones that work on the new microelectronics stuff would be tasty, though, smoked or salt-cured and served like anchovies on pizza...

Rich says:

Funnily enough we had reindeer steaks last night, they were max tasty. Impala had a certain something too, though I think the Kangaroo was the tastiest. Rudolph comes a very close second.

Suitable revenge for the dreadful "Kangaroo Jack" movie? A step in the right direction, maybe, but it should have been a haunch of Jerry Bruckheimer on your plate....
