Macadamia Crusted Emu by chiziwhiteafrican Macadamia Crusted Emu by chiziwhiteafrican
Macadamia nut crusted emu steaks on du puy lentils with grilled asparagus, roasted 4 colored carrots and red wine reduction.

It's important to serve emu at rare to medium rare, as the general lack of fat causes the meat to dry out once it's cooked beyond that point.

Emu is a slightly sweet and slightly gamey meat that tastes very much like bison.

Thanks for submitting this to #Bloodmouths! It's hard to find exotic meats on deviantART, and this one's a real gem. I didn't know emu was eaten, but it looks and sounds absolutely delicious. :dummy:

Tastes a lot like venison... and there are actually many emu farms throughout North America. See <[link]> to start finding an emu farm near you :)

Yah, it was pretty incredible. The menu that day was Australian themed... kangaroo and emu kebabs on lemongrass skewers, macadamia nut crusted emu steaks and for dessert we had wattleseed creme brulees. The head chef was awesome too, made sure that there was enough left over for us all to try some of everything, and for me to get photos. Lots of fun :)

It was honestly as simple as grill the emu on one side, crust the side that you've just seared with crushed nuts, salt and pepper, then grill on the other side until the desired doneness is acquired and let rest for an appropriate amount of time. It was also done with beef tenderloin instead of emu on another evening.
