You can use ground emu the same way you use very lean ground beef. Emu meat is available either vacuum packed or fresh.  It may be mail-ordered from individual producers or can be found at retail in specialty food stores, health food stores and retail establishments around the country.   According to AEA, emu is deep red colored meat with no marbling.  Because it is very lean, there will be little to no shrinkage during cooking.  A moist heat and shorter cooking time is recommended.
