Recipe from: 5/1/2002 12:00:00 AM
Ingredients 8
Servings 4
Time 30 minutes


  • 1/2 cup sweet chilli sauce
  • 5
    fresh minced ginger
  • 500
    ostrich fillet or 4 steaks
  • good squeeze of lemon or lime juice
  • fresh coriander or basil
  • long-stemmed broccoli
  • rice vinegar
  • sesame seeds


8 minutes

Wipe meat with kitchen towelling.
Mix chilli sauce and ginger together and place in a shallow dish.
Add ostrich and allow to marinade for about 30 minutes.
Pour excess marinade into a non-stick pan and heat to bubbling point.
Add ostrich and cook over a high heat, turning once, until cooked to desired readiness - about 6 to 8 minutes for rare.
Don't overcook ostrich: its' low fat content turns it dry and rubbery in the blink of an eye.
About a minute before the end of cooking time, add a squeeze of lemon juice an handful of chopped herbs.
Serve with steamed broccoli which is fab with this dish, drizzle with rice wine vinegar and scatter with toasted sesame seeds.
