We had this delicious specialty during our outback trip visiting Uluru and learned how the Aboriginals prepare it. Sooooo delicious! Tastes a bit like lamb.

We learned how to make this in the bush the way the Aboriginals do it. They would usually do it with a whole kangaroo though :). Tastes incredibly delicious!


Step 1 Ask your most trusted butcher for a kangaroo tail with (still the skin on).
Step 2 Make a bush fire on a sandy place. Get the fire going long enough to have burning charcoal.
Step 3 Put on fireproof gloves and bream the tail in the open fire for a few seconds. Then scrape the burned hair off with a knife.
Step 4 Take a shovel and dig a hole in the sandy ground that is 30cm deep and has the length of your tail.
Step 5 Fill the whole with a base layer of burning charcoal. Place the kangaroo tail on top and cover it with another layer of charcoal.
Step 6 Close the whole with sand and put a stone on that spot, so you know where it is and don't step on it accidently :).
Step 7 Depending on your charcoal and size of your tail, leave it for 1 - 1 1/2 hours.
Step 8 Open the hole and take the tail out. Cut into the skin carefully and peel it off starting at the top of the tail.
Step 9 Cut off any fat and serve it hot. For the proper Aboriginal experience, eat without fork and knife and just bite into it ;). ENJOY!
