Marinated Ostrich Steak Recipe

We raise ostriches on our farm on the eastern shore of Maryland, so we have an abundance of meat on hand to use for a variety of dishes. It's a lean meat that tastes similar to beef. My mother-in-law gave me this marinade recipe, and I've used it with a number of meats.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + marinating
MAKES:4 servings
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + marinating
MAKES: 4 servings


  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup cider or white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 ostrich or beef tenderloin steaks (4 ounces each)


  1. In a resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container, combine the first 10 ingredients; mix well. Add meat to marinade and turn to coat. Seal bag or cover container; refrigerate overnight, turning meat occasionally. Drain and discard marinade. Broil or grill, covered, over medium heat for 5 minutes. Turn and cook 6-8 minutes longer or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; and well done, 170°). Yield: 4 servings.
