Camp Fire Kangaroo tails
You can get kangaroo tails with hair on or off the one we keep the most is hair on the easiest and quickest way to get the hair of is to burn it off in a fire just throw it directly in and singe the hair off. Once you have singed the hair you just wipe it of with a cloth this leaves the underlying tail and then you just put this into your oven or under the coals, like a old style bush oven then you can eat the meat like you do corn off the cob.
Kangaroo tail Soup/Stew (like ox – osso bucco tail but better)
For this recipe it is actually better to get the rootail skin off, it may cost a little extra but in our opinion it is much easier then ” wrap in alfoil cook in oven / under coals for 20 to 30 minutes on high , peel skin off”
Once you have the rootail with skin off cut into bits and add to a slow cooker then add vegetables any assortment you like, covering the Kangaroo tail, ad 1/2 to 1.5 litre’s of stock (chicken or beef) depending if you want soup or stew then put on low for 6 hours and then boom you have kangaroo stew, for ease of mind take out the bones.
