Smoked Ostrich Steaks

A simple marinade keeps these ostrich steaks moist and tender as they cook. Ostrich is a lean source of protein that is closer in flavor and appearance to red meat than poultry. Try serving these as an alternative to beef steaks for an interesting and easy main dish.

In a bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients. Rub over the steaks, transfer to a Ziploc bag, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours or overnight.

Preheat a grill or prepare a smoker. Wrap the steaks with prosciutto and smoke or grill until medium-rare, about 20 minutes. (The marinade will keep the steaks moist and tender, but ostrich meat is lean so be careful not to overcook.)
