Ostrich Meat UK – The New Beef!

 

Ostrich meat is the New Beef! UK Nutrition

If you love red meat, but could do without the saturated fat and cholesterol then ostrich is the way forward!

Nutrition experts and dietitians all over the world are highly in favor of ostrich over red meat. The taste and texture is similar, but I, myself, find ostrich to be more succulent than beef.  Because the fat is stored outside of the muscle, it is easier to process, making it leaner than chicken and other meats.

Considering how processed chicken, and even beef, is becoming nowadays, making the switch to ostrich seems to be a great choice. It is extremely easy to cook. It’s best when shallow fried rare – medium-rare. Be very careful not to overcook it as it will go rubbery! If you want a more elegant taste and have more time on your hands, cook on 100C/215F for 5-6 hours in a casserole dish of gravy, in the oven. Perfecto!

Ostrich is also high in iron – even more so than beef. This is great for those of us that lead an active lifestyle!

The photo above is a meal that I prepared. Aside from ostrich, it includes black kale, asparagus and red peppers.

All of this together makes for a great post workout meal. Here’s more of an in depth look at what’s inside:

People often ask me about sauces and dressings. Understandably so, it isn’t difficult to spoil a perfectly healthy dish with globs of ketchup, ranch dressing, or something similar.

This is a cost effective, quick and easy salad dressing recipe and is ideal for Boni’s Asparagus, Tenderstem Broccoli and Bacon Salad (see previous post).

Preparation is the key to success and convenience is what it’s all about when it comes to eating healthily. For that reason our recipe focus is built upon those very aspects.
