Herb and Garlic Ostrich Steak

I am a big fan of ostrich meat – lean, tasty and versatile!

I often use it make meatballs, burger patties, bolognaise, etc – but my favourite dish is this one!

And it is super easy to prepare!

Serves 4 (200g per person)

800g ostrich steak
Fresh garlic cloves (to taste, I love garlic way too much to be able to give a “sensible” guideline!)
Fresh herbs – rosemary, thyme, sage
20ml olive oil
About 150ml balsamic vinegar – enough to cover the steaks when marinating.


The best way to marinate meat is actually to just mix everything together in a Ziplock bag!  But you can use any container – as long as the meat is covered in the balsamic/herb/garlic mix! Leave to marinate for a bit – 30 min or so should actually be enough.

Fry steaks on an open flame (braai in other words!) or prepare in griddle pan on the stovetop.  Be careful not to over cook – because of the low fat content it can dry out quickly!

Enjoy! 🙂
