Ostrich steak

Ostrich is low in cholesterol and very tender and tasty. The ravenous rambler like to travel in Southern Africa where this is staple diet and can be found as road kill although not as easy to deal with as a pheasant! If you live in South Africa you will find it easily but in the Chilterns there is a supplier who goes to the farmers markets.
Just put some oil in a pan and heat, then flash fry the steaks for a few minutes either side. When done, add a little flour to the pan and stir, gradually add some red wine and cook for a few minutes until thickened.
I would serve with boiled potatoes and sprouting broccoli or vegetable of your choice.
