I finally made it to this tiny butcher/wild game processor shop today, and came back with some gator and a tiny ostrich roast. I could have easily dropped a couple hundred bucks on everything from rattlesnake to kangaroo (next time) and wild boar.



I'm thinking about just doing Alligator Po Boys for dinner tonight. But I'll still have some gator pieces left.

I'm thinking about doing the Ostrich Sous-Vide for dinner tomorrow. What I've read says to cook it in the bath for 3 hours @ 55c. Then I'll brown it off.

There's a handful of Ostrich recipes on the web, but nothing sounds too interesting.

Anyone got anything for either the Ostrich or the gator?

Gator is a white meat? Must taste like chicken...

Yeah, actually it does. Usually it's breaded in seasoned flour and deep fried like chicken nuggets. Though I just found some interesting recipes including one for Gator Piquante that I might make with what I don't fry up today.

Different texture, though.

Not much different though when it's deep fried, at least in my experience.

No one's got any ideas for the Ostrich?

Never used either but waiting for some good feedback as well as my butcher has both. I'm guessing Creamygoodness might have some ideas.

I think I'm going with a bourbon teriyaki marinade for the Ostrich.

1 cup teriyaki sauce (I'm making my own)
1/4 cup bourbon
1 tablespoon habanero hot sauce (I'm going to use rooster sauce I think)

Ostrich is not gamey and also tastes nothing like chicken. Treat it much as you would beef, that recipe looks like it shoudl work quite well.

About the only ostrich we buy is the neck. We treat it a lot like ox tail, looooooooong slow cooking because it's quite tough. I'll normally add coca cola and red wine or a ruby port, aside from that nothing too fancy.
