This recipe comes from a recipe book that I have that was written by a dietician. I really love the recipes in there. They are full of flavour and healthy! WIN WIN!! 🙂
Ostrich also loves fruity partners and this combo works so well.
400 – 600g ostrich steaks
Salt and pepper
15 ml olive oil
150 ml dry sherry
150 ml chicken stock
15 ml crushed garlic
Grated rind of 1 orange
3 or 4 sage leaves finely chopped
15 ml cornflour
75 ml orange juice
Orange wedges and sage leaves to garnish
– Season the ostrich lightly with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a casserole pot, add the meat and cook for 5 – 6 minutes turning to brown all sides evenly
– Add the sherry, boil for about 1 minute, then add the stock, garlic, orange rind and sage. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat to low.
– Cover and simmer for 20 minutes, turning once. The meat is cooked when the juices run clear.
– Transfer the ostrich to a warmed platter and cover to keep warm
– Bring sauce to the boil. Blend the cornflour and orange juice and stir into the sauce.
– Boil gently over a medium heat for a few minutes, stirring frequently, until the sauce is slightly thickened. Strain into a gravy boat or serving jug.
– This dish looks so pretty with yellow rice.
Serves 4 – 6
