Ostrich can be a lean alternative to beef. However, Ostrich isn't strong on flavor so you will want to season it well. This recipe will give you an ostrich steak very similar in flavor and texture to that of a grilled beef steak. Serve over rice, potatoes, or assorted grilled vegetables.
- 4 4-5 ounce/110-140 g ostrich steaks (about 3/4 inch thick)
- 2 tablespoons/30 mL Worcestershire sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 1/2 teaspoon/7.25 mL salt
- 1 teaspoon/5 mL olive oil
- 1 teaspoon/5 mL onion powder
- 1 teaspoon/5 mL coarse ground black pepper
- Place ostrich steaks on a plate. Combine remaining ingredients and rub into both sides of steaks. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 2 hours.
- Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Remove steaks from refrigerator and let them sit at room temperature (covered) for 15 minutes as the grill is heating up.
- Oil grill grates well once it has heated and place steaks onto to cook. Grill steaks for 5-6 minutes per side, depending on thickness or until internal temperature reaches at least 150 degrees F.
- Once cooked to appropriate temperature, remove from grill and let meat rest for 5-7 minutes. Serve.
