How to cook South African Ostrich Meat

Ostriches are farmed throughout the world for meat, feathers, and leather. An ostrich produces up to 40 eggs and ostriches produce more meat than cattle and contain the least fat, calories and cholesterol of beef, chicken, pork, lamb, and turkey. Ostrich meat is red meat but it's low in cholesterol and fat.

Standing tall on long, bare legs, the Ostrich has a long, curving, predominantly white neck. Ostriches are mainly vegetarian, eating grass, succulents’ berries and seeds, though they will also eat insects. They swallow large numbers of pebbles which help grind the harder food in the gizzard and aid digestion.

Africa’s semi-arid plains, woodlands, savannahs, and grasslands are the habitats where the ostrich lives. Ostriches live in the African countries of Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, Ethiopia, Somalia, Zambia, Mali, Chad, Sudan, Mozambique, and Tanzania.
