Ostrich Tenderloin with Herb Crust is a perfect dish to impress guests or enjoy a gourmet meal at home. The tenderloin is lightly seasoned and encrusted with a blend of fresh herbs and breadcrumbs, offering a crunchy exterior and a succulent interior that truly showcases the delicacy of ostrich meat.

Ingredients List:

  • 4 ostrich tenderloin steaks (about 6 oz each)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Prepare the Herb Crust: In a bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, minced garlic, rosemary, thyme, parsley, and grated Parmesan. Mix well.
  3. Season the Tenderloins: Season the ostrich tenderloins with salt and pepper. Brush each piece with Dijon mustard.
  4. Apply the Herb Crust: Press the herb and breadcrumb mixture onto the mustard-coated tenderloins, ensuring they are well covered.
  5. Cook: Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the crusted tenderloins for about 2 minutes on each side, then transfer to a baking tray.
  6. Bake: Place the tenderloins in the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the meat is cooked to your desired doneness.
  7. Rest: Let the tenderloins rest for a few minutes before slicing to keep the juices in.

Tips and Variations:

Herb Variations: Feel free to experiment with different herbs like basil or oregano for a different flavor profile.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with a side of roasted vegetables and a drizzle of balsamic reduction for added flair.
