Ostrich Tenderloin Meat - Average 3 Lbs.
Exotic Meat Market offers Ostrich Meat from Ostriches born, raised, and harvested in the USA. At our farm in Southern California we raise over 200 Ostriches on Alfalfa and Beer Spent Grains.
Our Ostrich Tenderloin is tender red meat with robust flavor. Average 2.5 to 3 Lbs. Each. Ostrich is similar in taste, texture, and appearance to beef. It's comparable to beef in iron and protein content, but ostrich has less than half the fat of chicken and two-thirds less fat than beef and pork.
Ostrich beats the competition with fewer calories, too. That's why ostrich is the choice of health-conscious consumers who refuse to sacrifice flavor.
Because of its low-fat content, ostrich cooks faster than other meat products. Steaks and whole muscles should be cooked medium rare to medium. Cooking ostrich to well done is not recommended.
