Stuffed Ostrich Fillet

Stuffed Ostrich Fillet

Fillet is the king of all meat cuts, and it is no different with an ostrich fillet. The meat is tender, full of subtle flavour and can be cooked to any desired temperature, but rare to medium-rare is best. Do not take your eye off the meat while it is cooking as 2-3 minutes per side is enough.

How to make a stuffed fillet roll:

  • Butterfly and open the fillet.
  • Place the fillet between two sheets of grease-proof paper on a chopping board.
  • Gently pound with a rolling pin until the fillet is thin, but be careful not to make holes in it.
  • Let it rest for a few minutes.
  • Start with the end of the fillet closest to you and roll towards the top into a log shape.
  • Place it seam-side down on the board.
