A distinctly piquant meat, Ostrich is rich in protein and remarkably low in fat with the average 100 grams comprising of approximately 30 grams of protein and less than 1 gram of fat. The low fat content makes it an ideal food for those with heart problems who still bear the need to consume red meat.

The texture is not unlike beef, although the grain of the meat is a little finer. Once it has been properly prepared, an Ostrich steak resembles cooked beef, just a little darker.

(I have several recipes which I will post in due course.)
