I like a good steak and I really love a steak that not only tastes great but has a lot of bang for the buck.
Ostrich meat is a wonderful healthy red meat with all of the flavor and texture of beef. It is rich in protein and high in iron yet is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol than skinless chicken or turkey. The price is comparable to high quality beef and sometimes a little less expensive. I order my ostrich from Blackwing Meats. I like that the meats are vacuumed sealed and they stay fresh for a long time in the freezer.
We also love french fries at our house. So far every one’s favorite are my Hand Cut Oven Fries. The secret to making great potatoes is to place them into a bowl of cold water until you are ready to toss them with oil and put them into the oven. This will prevent the potatoes from discoloring while waiting to get them all peeled and cut. Make sure you dry the potatoes before you toss in them oil to bake.
I like this meal because it’s basic, not a lot of ingredients and everyone likes it. The steak gets the basic rub down with olive oil, salt and pepper before going onto the grill pan. The fries are tossed in olive oil with salt, pepper, onion powder, paprika and parsley. The only thing that takes a little thought is what to serve with it. Tonight I chose peas which was not popular. But then again there are not many green vegetables they love around here.
If you give ostrich a try I’d love to hear what you think.
