Ostrich Meatloaf Recipe

This easy ostrich meatloaf recipe is the result of a combined effort between my wife and me, after experimenting with many different tomato-based sauces, and found one that works exceptionally well with the ostrich. We love ostrich meat and its associated health benefits. Ostrich meat is also compatible with the paleo diet, a good excuse in itself to convert to ostrich meat.

There is a little twist to this ostrich meatloaf recipe. Most meatloaf recipes use a tomato sauce-based topping, something we tried. After a few attempts, I discovered that sweet chilli sauce compliments the ostrich meat very well and enhances the flavour dramatically. My mother-in-law is my greatest food critic, and even she, had a smile on her face when she tasted this ostrich meatloaf. Children are not even able to tell the difference between this ostrich meatloaf recipe and traditional meatloaf. A good way to get your children to eat healthy meat.

Thanks and happy ostrich meatloaf cooking.

I am happy to see that I am not the only one who still thinks the paleo diet is alive and kicking. My family only eat ostrich meat as our choice of red meat and we are always on the lookout for ostrich recipes. Lucky we found your website. Thanks for the wonderful ostrich recipe and please email me when you add a new one. 🙏 5.00

South Africa is an amazing place. I remember seeing the cooks prepare meatloaf in a clay dish during one of our stays at a game reserve. If my memory serves me right it was a venison meatloaf, something like springbok. I searched all over and am happy to have found this meatloaf recipe. It is delicious. 😋🥩 5.00
