Tender and Tasty Ostrich Steaks


Low in cholesterol and fat, Ostrich is becoming a popular choice to have on the menu when seeking something different. With a fillet steak texture and succulent/tender bite, these steaks really do compete head to head with traditional steaks.

We recommend pairing this dish with the Marcel Martin Les Bernieres Chinon Red Wine. The ripe fruit and earthy undertones, coupled with fresh acidity make this a perfect wine to accompany Ostrich steaks.
