Caribbean Ostrich Steaks

Ostrich is a healthy and delicious lean substitute for any red or white meat in any of your favorite recipes. It's loaded with zinc — one of the key ingredients for maintaining healthy eyes — plus, it absorbs seasonings, so it's highly versatile.
  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 6 Servings
  • 1/2 cup(s) oil, olive
  • 1/2 cup(s) orange juice
  • 1/2 cup(s) lime juice
  • 2 scallion(s) (green onions) chopped
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, fresh chopped
  • 1/2 pepper(s), jalapeno seeded and minced (wear plastic gloves when handling)
  • pepper, black, coarsely ground
  • 6 ostrich, tenderloin fillets
  • 1 lime(s) sliced

Combine the oil, orange juice, lime juice, scallions, parsley, jalapeño, and black pepper to taste in a large zip-top bag. Add the ostrich and seal the bag, pressing out excess air. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

Preheat a grill. Drain the steaks (discard the marinade). Grill the steaks over high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side, until browned. (You can also cook the steaks in a heavy skillet over high heat.) If you like, cut the steaks at an angle into thin slices. Garnish with lime slices.

Serving Size: 1 steak - about 5 oz.
