You can boil, roast or grill ostrich meat like you would beef.Make sure you do not overcook the ostrich meat and you can marinate it so it does not get tough while cooking.
Ostrich meat absorbs marinade faster than beef, so you may want to shorten the marinating time and reduce the number of spices you use.
