Product Reviews – Beef, Veal, Lamb, Kangaroo & Pork

On this page I will be reviewing some of the red meat ingredients that I use regularly when in Ketosis. I will continue to update this page with new products. Some of these may not be available in your local area but I’m sure that you will be able to find substitutes. 




K-Roo products in Coles and Woolworths

I’ve been eating K-Roo products for many years. Their range of products can be found in Woolworths and Coles nationally. Their sausages and kebabs are fantastic and for this recipe I used the Diced Kangaroo. For more information on the benefits of Kangaroo and the K-Roo product range, please see this fantastic website –

Rissoles & Burgers

Woolworths Homestyle Rissoles

These rissoles from Woolworths are great at only 75g per rissole and 2.3g/ of Carbohydrate per 100g. These quick to cook and are great served with salad or between tomato slices with a slice of melted cheese as a quick slider. 


Sausages are such a quick source of protein but you need to be careful on the carbohydrate content to ensure you are getting a high quality, low carbohydrate product with as little fillers as possible.  Generally the cheaper the sausages are, the more cereal fillers and binders are used. Have a look at the ingredient listing and see what % meat is in the product. The highest % of meat possible is the best. When the flavours of the product is tasty then you don’t need to add high sugar sauces for extra flavour. 

Woolworths Lamb Sausages with Mint & Rosemary

These are great tasting sausages with only 2.3g of Carbohydrate per 83g sausage. The flavour is delicious and they go really well with steamed vegetables and buttery cauliflower mash. 


Costco – Otway’s Pork Handmade Italian Meatballs 1kg

I love these pork meatballs from Costco. They contain 85% pork and aren’t full of cereals and fillers commonly found in meatballs. They contain only 1.3g of carb per 100g so they are perfect for a low carb diet. The meatballs are packed in two x 500g packs so you can freeze one and use one straight away. I usually pan fry them in some olive oil till they are brown, add half a bottle of tomato passata, minced garlic, 1/2 tsp of salt and dried mixed herbs, and simmer to make a quick meatball sauce. Yumm!!!
