Steam your green beans in the microwave for about 5 minutes. Heat
your pan until it’s smoking hot. Rub the olive oil over the ostrich
fillet. It would be easier if you had 2 x 100g pieces.
Once the pan is smoking, put in the ostrich. Fry on each side for
about 2-3 minutes. Remember ostrich has very little fat so it dries out
very quickly. Rather take it off when it’s too rare and put it back
than serve “Beetroot and Rubber Salad”.
Once your steak is cooked to your liking, let it rest on a plate for a few minutes.
Place the salad leaves and green beans on the plate. Add beetroot.
Slice steak into thin strips and douse in fresh lemon juice, salt and
pepper. Be liberal. You deserve it – you are having SALAD after all.
That’s got to count for something.
Divide the steak strips between the plates. Grate some lemon zest
over the pretty plate. Serve with olive oil and balsamic on the side.
