Ostrich Steaks with Calvados Sauce

Sharing is caring!

Ostrich and venison are the two meats with the lowest fat contents. Try this for a simple change. Gentle cooking is best (cooking too fast will turn the steaks leathery), and we aim for rare or medium. I like mine rare, and turn when the outside begins (just) to caramelise. A definite hit with my guests every time I do it. If you can get Creme Fraiche then fine, but try to avoid any CF that is labeled ‘light’. This curdles when heated. You can thicken the sauce if you like by using less stock. Serve with rice or potatoes and some tasty vegetables.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (6 pound) beef brisket, trimmed of fat
  • 2 (16 ounce) jars dill pickle spears
  • 1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce

Directions:

Place brisket in the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour dill pickle spears and pickle juice over the beef; add barbeque sauce.

Cook on High until beef shreds easily with 2 forks, about 6 hours.
