Not sure about the sauce, but it's a nice (healthy) red meat. A bit like beef steak I suppose?

From today's The Independent newspaper:

"So how does it taste? Aldi’s effort, which is sold as free range, as opposed to whatever battery-farming ostriches might look like, has a very distinctive flavour. It’s quite gamey and has a pronounced tang, and is much stronger than a chicken or beef. This will make it a little harder to pair with certain ingredients, and it might limit your options. We had ours with oven chips, as the Bushmen of the Kalahari might once have done.

It’s so lean as to be chewy, and it lacks the creaminess that the fat in a good beef steak might provide, but your arteries will be obliged.

In terms of preparation, you have to be a bit careful as this lack of fat can cause the meat to dry out. It’s best eaten rare to medium rare, which requires no more than two to three minutes’ cooking on either side. A marinade – as with which Aldi’s ostrich comes pre-slathered – is usually recommended to keep the meat moist, so you don’t end up chewing your own jaw off."

It's red meat, but not as fatty as beef. And seeing as fat gives beef most of it's taste, it's like a weak steak.

nice lean meat. Iceland sells Ostrich steaks too. Had them from both Iceland and Aldi and they are very nice. Strong gamey taste
#11
It's very much like emu,if that helps.
#12
Good for a change and nice maranade, but a rump steak quality.
#13
Serious question. Are these sold as Halal?
#14
I like ostrich but it's a bit pricey at £16.63 kg
#15
I had Asda ostrich some years ago. Not sure if it was free range though. We had it as stir fry. If you like lean beef you will like it. Its not a strange flavour or anything.

We tried them from the Iceland Bush Tucker Trial box, the steaks were lovely, fried in olive oil and butter to a medium serving :p

I hope not. :(

These are fabulous and I have to question the less than flattering 'reviews'. I have had quite a few of these from Aldi and find them neither gamey nor dry/tough, just a lovely, tender, lean steak in a pleasant, mild marinade to keep them moist as they are low in fat (cf beef). Perhaps some of the cooking has been less than expert? Don't overcook them!

Just give them a try and you'll probably enjoy them.

If beef steak is your thing try the Aldi Specially Selected steaks (esp ribeye) - reasonably priced and fabulous quality/flavour.

I've had these twice and if cooked correctly they melt in the mouth.

I think people are overcooking them... eating meat rare seems to be a big no no to many Brits especially the older generation.
