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
Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until slightly brown. Allow it to cool.
Combine with other ingredients and form into patties about 1 inch thick.
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.
