The Other Red Meat

We just arrived in Singapore after spending almost three weeks “down under” traveling through Australia.  We will have several posts coming about our Aussie experiences, but I decided to start with this post on a food topic.

While we were in Melbourne near the end of our Australian travels, I had the opportunity to buy some lovely red meat for the “Barbie” (Barbecue):

This is what a Barbecue grill often looks like in Australia – seems more like frying your dinner rather than grilling it.

And here’s the finished product:

We tasted it, and I thought it was kind of like a lean, gamey, Flank Steak. Not bad, but I freely admit I had trouble getting past the idea that I was eating that fuzzy, cuddly creature we saw at the petting zoo a few days earlier!
