This week from the SayersBrook Bison Ranch website ( its all about the Ostrich, OSTRICH COOKING TIPS AND MARINADE RECIPES. Ostrich is a very lean meat that best served cooked rare to medium-rare. Besides Ostrich you can also purchase items like Bison, Wild Boar, Elk, Rabbit, Chicken, and more at the SatersBrook site. Also at the site a large selection of delicious and healthy recipes. Now more about the Ostrich! Enjoy and Eat Healthy!


Ostrich is a very lean meat that looks more like a beef steak than poultry. It has a subtle flavor with no gamey taste. Ostrich is best served cooked rare to medium-rare. It cooks quickly so don’t take your eyes off the steak while it’s frying. Ostrich steak needs about 2½ minutes a side to cook up to a nice medium-rare. It should have a dark pink interior when sliced. You can serve ostrich with any vegetable side dish. A light gravy made from the marinade makes it even more delicious.
Ostrich Cooking Tips – Ostrich has a dark pinkish meat and a very subtle flavor. It cooks quickly and will be wasted if you try you drown it in strong flavor. Fry it with lots of butter and use a sauce such as bechamel or light wine sauce.

The meat continues to cook a bit after being removed from the heat source, that’s why it’s important not to cook it past rare to medium-rare. Letting it “rest” before slicing gives the meat time to reabsorb the juices that would otherwise be lost. When you cut it and eat it the meat will be juicier and tastier.

Rub it with a mixture of garlic, pepper, oil and let it sit in the fridge for up to 5 hours.

Wine is a great marinade for ostrich. Whether you use white, red or a rose it makes the meat tender and tasty without overpowering the ostrich. If you don’t have wine, use a vinaigrette. Mixing together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic and lemon juice makes for a good marinade too.

Ostrich is very lean. It tastes very much like steak as opposed to fowl. It’s a bit on the bland side so it’s a good idea to use a light gravy or sauce.
