Recipe For Clemengold Ostrich Fillets

When I posted my recipe for Ostrich Fillets with a Red Wine Jus there were a few questions as to where, what, how. So I thought I would share with you some interesting facts from the Ostrich South Africa Website.

  • More than 65% of the world’s ostriches are being found in South Africa and South Africa also accounts for 80% of ostrich products in the world
  • Oudtshoorn, in the Klein-Karoo (Southern Cape) is the ostrich capital of the world.
  • Meat, is exported mainly to Europe.
  • Because of the meat’s health characteristics ( almost no fat and cholesterol), it is a sought-after product.

Ostrich is a new addition to my kitchen. It is readily available in our supermarkets, but I have not really been enthused about it until I started treating it like game, instead of beef. If you do manage to find some, I hope you will buy the meat and try it.
