600 ea Emu fillets

1 tb Ground coriander

1/2 ts Five-berry mixture or mixed

Trim any sinew or "silver" skin from fillets. Using a mortar and

pestle, pound cardamom pods to release seeds; discard pods. Add

coriander, berry mixture, garlic and vinegar and pound to a paste.

Spread over fillets, cover and stand at room temperature for 1-2

hours. Reduce beef stock by boiling to about 375ml (1 1/2 cups). Keep

warm. Brush a cast-iron grill pan (with removable or ovenproof

handle) with mustard seed oil and heat on top of the stove until very

hot. Cook fillets for 1 minute on each side. Transfer pan to a 220C

oven and bake for 5 minutes - no longer. Remove pan from oven,

transfer fillets to a warm plate and stand for 5 minutes, Add the

thawed riberries to reduced stock and bring to the boil. Serve meat

sliced thinly on the diagonal, with sauce spooned over. Note 1:

Five-berry mixture is black, white, pink, Jamaica and green

peppercorns, with coriander seeds, and is sold as such.
