Raw Ostrich Tip Roast with medley of vegetables

Preparation

  1. Pull your meat out of refrigeration, season, and allow to sit out approximately 2 hours to reach room temperature. 
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and carefully add the roast.
  3. Using tongs (two sets is helpful), cook and turn each side of the meat to reach a nice crispy brown all the way around.
  4. Place meat in a roasting pan with your vegetables and fresh herbs, and cover with a lid or aluminum foil (to create some steam and keep the meat tender & juicy).
  5. Roast at 300F (keep covered) until the coolest internal part of the roast reaches 120F, about 30-40 minutes. 
  6. Remove the meat from the pan and allow to rest covered 10-20 minutes.  This should bring the internal temperature to 130-135F.
  7. Using a meat slicing knife, cut to your desired thickness making sure to cut against the grain.
  8. Serve with your favorite side dishes and enjoy your gorgeous roast ostrich!
