How do you cook ostrich fan fillets?
Accordingly, how do you cook an ostrich?
Ostrich is best served cooked rare to medium-rare. It cooks quickly so don't take your eyes off the steak while it's frying. Ostrich steak needs about 2½ minutes a side to cook up to a nice medium-rare. It should have a dark pink interior when sliced.
Secondly, do people cook ostrich? It's best eaten rare to medium rare, which requires no more than two to three minutes' cooking on either side. A marinade – as with which Aldi's ostrich comes pre-slathered – is usually recommended to keep the meat moist, so you don't end up chewing your own jaw off. Ostrich is in a lot of ways the perfect farm animal.
Similarly, how does ostrich meat taste?
Ostrich meat doesn't taste like other birds. It's meat is red like venison and the taste is similar to prime beef. Other's say it tastes like veal. The meat comes in all of the cuts that beef comes in, including steaks and burgers, as well as ground meat.
Is Ostrich meat tender?
Ostrich as most game meats, should not be overcooked. I like my ostrich meat to be medium cooked. I like other game meats rare to medium rare, but ostrich I find has a better texture and is more tender at medium doneness. One ostrich filet was very filling because the meat is so dense and packed with nutrients.
