Ostrich is a great alternative to most fatty festive foods, because it has all the beefy flavor of red meat, but only 1/3 of the fat. And, what's more, it's as easy to cook as any other steak, but is just that little bit different for the holidays. The blackberry sauce makes the most of this lean meat, in much the same way that cranberry sauce does for turkey. Try this ostrich steak with mashed potatoes & blackberry sauce recipe.
