Chef's Note

Ostrich loves field berries. Depending on the season, you can use raspberries, blackberries or red currants.

You can cook the little roasts with no preparation or else marinate them in olive oil with a sprig of rosemary for several hours. Afterwards, you won't need to add any oil to the skillet.

If you're not counting calories, whisk some butter into the sauce at the last minute to make it creamy - or add a knob of butter and a touch of cream.
