Ostrich has a very beef-like quality but is a much leaner meat. You might just be able to fool a few people with this ostrich burger recipe.


  • 1 pound ground ostrich
  • 2 tablespoons onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon ​olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil until slightly brown. Allow it to cool.

  2. Combine with other ingredients and form into patties about 1 inch thick.

  3. Preheat grill. Place patties on hot grill and cook on each side for 5 to 6 minutes or until done (an internal temperature of 165 F). Serve on buns with your favorite hamburger toppings.

  4. Enjoy.
