Fillet of ostrich

My market is carrying some wild things now and the kid asked to try the fillet of ostrich. What do I do with it?

Cook it like you would a filet mignon steak - and medium rare is best; ostrich has virtually no fat in it, so the taste and toughness increase when the meat is cooked to medium or well.

Sauce it, too, as you would a filet - a nice bearnaise or wine demi.

yep, what marmalady said. i've had medallions like filet mignon, and ostrich burgers. they're very good, and healthier for you than beef. it's not exactly like beef in taste and texture, but it's good in it's own way. they're good with a thyme, red wine, butter reduction...

Thanks. I didn't know if it was more like poultry or beef.

Sounds a lot like the flavor of good corn-fed goose. I adore the stuff, and was completely taken by surprise by its flavor the first time I had it. My kids love it as well. My wife on the ohter hand...

Your kid made you buy it? I bet you're glad your market doesn't sell mountain oysters! :twisted:

Pray tell - what are mountain oysters? Sounds like something I would love.

The kid is 12. He has requested oysters, squid (sauteed and fried), sushi - so I told him about the exotic things my market is carrying now. He asked for the ostrich and rabbit first. Then we'll move on to the buffalo medallions, ground buffalo and ground ostrich. It's fun to eat out with him as well.

chesterchippy, you really don't want rocky mountain oysters, trust me. (baby bull's testicles)

Mountain oysters are what they cut off of baby bulls to make them into baby steers.

Your kid is unusual. I bet your child will be a contestant on either Survivor or Fear Factor!
