Emu - Life Just Got Healthier Cookbook
Oven Fried Emu
4 tenderized emu steaks
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. Season salt or Cajun seasonings
1/3 cup emu egg (or 2 large chicken eggs)
2 Tbsp. Water
2 Tbsp. Chopped fresh herbs (parsley, basil and thyme)
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pat tenderized steaks dry, combine the flour and seasoning in a bowl to mix, then add tenderized steak to coat evenly. Shake off excess, sprinkle with a little water then coat again in the seasoned flour. Beat the egg with the water in a shallow dish. Stir in the herbs. Dip the tenderized steaks into the egg mixture, turning to coat them evenly. Combine the bread crumbs and grated Parmesan cheese on a plate, roll the tenderized steaks in the crumbs patting with your fingers to help to adhere. Place emu tenderized steaks in a greased pan large enough to hold them in one layer. Bake until thoroughly cooked and golden, about 30 minutes.
