Tips & Tricks

"Ostrich, a red meat, is rich in protein and iron, contains no marbled for fine texture. For best taste the meat should be cooked to no more than medium doneness. Moist heat methods, steaming, poaching, simmering will achieve excellent results. When broiling or grilling more tender cuts, cook to 145-150 degrees. Serve immediately. Ground meat should be cooked to 160 degrees, until it is no longer pink; serve immediately. Ostrich meats can be used with all of your favorite meat recipes. Sauces, marinades, rubs, and spices give flavorful results."
