Ostrich Steak Burgers with Camembert and Onion Marmalade
Turn your ostrich burger into a “deluxe burger” by adding rich Camembert and the sweet decadence of onion marmalade.

- 15ml olive oil
- 4 Panini’s or 2 small baguettes, halved
- Mixed salad leaves
- 2 Tomatoes, sliced
- 16 slices young camembert
- Brush steak burgers with olive oil.
- Grill in hot griddle pan or braai on grid over moderately hot coals until nicely browned. Keep warm.
- 6 large onions, thinly sliced
- 750ml sherry or red wine vinegar
- 750ml sugar
- 90ml mustard seeds
- 2-4 bay leaves
- 20 Black peppercorns, cracked
- Place onions, sherry or red wine vinegar, sugar, bay leaves and peppercorns in a heavy-based pot over low heat.
- Simmer until almost all liquid has evaporated and onions are translucent.
- Set aside to cool.
- Place in glass jars and refrigerate. Will keep for 4-6 months.
- Butter both sides of the bread.
- Place leaves and a tomato slice on the bottom part.

Chef’s tip: Replace butter with low-fat cottage cheese. Camembert can be replaced with shavings of mature cheddar or Parmesan cheese.
