Lemon-Crusted Ostrich Fillet with Merlot Reduction
(see most recently 6.358 Pork Tenderloin Elaina)
with staff and participants of the SDG meeting
Though I’ve tried wallaby, kangaroo, and emu (see generally 5.338 Wild Harrisa Spiced Wallaby Loin) — all in one sitting, incidentally — this was my first experience with ostrich! As with wallaby, kangaroo, and emu, the ostrich looked, felt, smelt, and tasted like beef — lean, mean.
Our division hosted a regional meeting on the Sustainable Development Goals this week, participants including many VIPs, both from Korea and beyond, both as country representatives and external experts, which is why I’ve been involved in so many dinners over the past few days (see most recently 7.169 Assorted Pickles) — tonight was the most “official” one.
