Think oxtail or beef short rib, but FAR leaner. Ostrich neck meat is best slow-cooked in a crockpot or stewed until tender, falling off the bone and shredding like pulled pork. Cut in convenient 3-4" sections and shipped frozen in individual packages weighing approximately 1.25-1.75 lbs each. 


Most cuts will thaw in the refrigerator within 24 hours. Once thawed, use within 5 days. Unused, uncooked portions may be refrozen within 3-4 days of thawing.

Need it faster? Submerge sealed package in cold water. Change the water every 30 minutes until fully thawed, approx. 1-3 hours. Use immediately & do not refreeze.

While not recommended, you may thaw in the microwave using the defrost setting (microwave ovens vary; refer to your model’s user manual). Use immediately and do not refreeze.

OSTRICH NECK

A true delicacy, ostrich neck is a richly flavored, lean cut known for its robust taste, depth of flavor, and decadent texture. Neck is a bone-in cut that should be prepared like ox tail or short ribs. Ostrich neck shines in slow-cooked recipes such as braises, stews, and soups. The slow cooking process breaks down the connective tissue, resulting in tender, succulent meat that absorbs the flavors of the surrounding ingredients.

Use ostrich neck meat in hearty, comforting dishes that benefit from its robust flavor and texture. It pairs well with a variety of spices and can be used alongside collagen and marrow bones to make a rich, healthy stock. Neck can also be braised in a flavorful liquid with aromatic vegetables and herbs. Cook low and slow until the meat is tender and falls off the bone. Shred the meat for street tacos, filled pasta, or homemade soup.

Like other ostrich cuts, neck meat is low in fat, high in protein, and packed with essential nutrients such as iron and vitamin B12, making it a wholesome choice.
