Ostrich Campfire Stew

Comfort food at its best.  You will not go wrong with this hot and delicious stew with a base of nutritious Ostrich Bone Broth and loaded with tender Ostrich Thigh and fresh veggies.

Ingredients
1-pound ostrich thigh meat             
1 large carrot
½ sweet yellow onion                          
1 potato (we highly recommend an Idaho potato!)
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
½ garlic clove, minced
1 tsp fresh parsley
3 cups ostrich bone broth (click here for recipe!) or, if you must, beef broth will work too
1 tbsp corn starch

Special kitchen tools

Cast iron skillet or ceramic pot or your favorite deep-sided frying pan

Preparation

Cut thigh into cubes: approximately 1.5" - 2" pieces

Raw ostrich thigh cut into cubes

Wash and peel the potato and cut into 1” cubes.  Pro tip: potato skin is healthy and delicious – especially from nice big Idaho potatoes – fry up those skin peelings in a pan with some olive oil, salt, and pepper for a tasty appetizer.

Peel and slice carrot, peel and quarter the onion, chop the fresh parsley.  Season the ostrich cubes using the salt and pepper.

Heat butter in a cast-iron skillet on medium heat and add the cubed ostrich, turning to lightly sear each piece.  Add fresh garlic and cook for a few minutes – do not fully brown or create a crust.

Add to the skillet 2½ of your 3 cups of bone broth and the potatoes, then allow to simmer 10 minutes.

Add the carrots and onion and simmer until tender (another 10-15 mins should do it).

Mix remaining ½ cup of broth with the corn starch to make a slurry.  Mix until all of the corn starch is dissolved. 

Add your slurry to the stew and allow to cook until thickened (10-15 more minutes). 

Season to taste, sprinkle fresh parsley on top, and serve.
