Though ostrich is quite pricey, it’s pretty much 100% lean, so there’s no waste or shrinkage during cooking really.
Just take a close look at the nutritional stats on below Ostrich meat!!! Impressive, non? So get eating that ostrich folks and enjoy it too boot!
450 gms ground ostrich meat
2 T. coconut oil
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
Dash each with ground thyme, onion powder and black pepper
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
Slice up the ostrich meat into a glass bowl. Add all ingredients and work it together with a fork or with your hand until all is well blended. Cover and refrigerate to allow the flavors to mingle for 1-2 hours before you plan to cook.
Place “steaks” under grill. When one side is grilled to your liking, flip them over and finish cooking. I warn you if you cook them well done, they are definitely going to be dryer and you’ll end up being disappointed.
Medium they were NOT dry at all. We served ours with grilled tomato but these would also be good with seasoned grilled onion slices, yellow or zucchini squash or eggplant slices as well!
