Ostrich steak is a healthy and delicious alternative to your regular beef steak cuts. Ostriches have always been known as the largest birds on earth
but their meat has only become popular around the world 20 or 30 years ago. In South Africa we are blessed with many ostrich farms which is one of the reasons why we enjoy ostrich meat on a regular basis. The other however is the fact that the red meat of these big birds is very low in fat and calories and rich in iron and protein, making it a more balanced and healthier choice than pork or beef meat.
