  • 500 g ostrich fillet
  • 5 ml Robertsons meat tenderizer
  • 30 ml vegetable oil
  • 10 ml Robertsons Barbecue Spice
  • 1 ml Robertsons crushed chillies (or add more to taste)
  • 1 large onion, sliced thinly
  • 15 ml fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into thin strips
  • 1 large yellow pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 large red pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 250 ml mange tout, sliced in half lengthways
  • 4 nests rice noodles, cooked or soaked in hot water to soften
  • 250 ml plain cashew nuts, roughly chopped
  • 15 ml soy sauce
  • 15 ml sweet chilli sauce
  • fresh coriander, chopped


  1. Lightly dampen the ostrich fillet with water and rub with Robertsons Meat Tenderiser, before cutting into medium strips.

  2. Place a wok OR a large non-stick frying pan on medium-high heat, add most of the vegetable oil. Add the ostrich fillet, Robertsons Barbecue Spice, Robertsons Crushed Chillies and some salt and stir-fry for a few minutes until cooked. Remove from the wok and keep aside and warm.

  3. Add the rest of the oil to the wok, add the onion and ginger and cook for 2 minutes. Add the rest of the vegetables and the cashew nuts and stir fry for a further 3 to 4 minutes until the vegetables are almost tender but still crisp.

  4. Add the rice noodles and ostrich back to the wok and stir on the heat for about 2 minutes. Add the soy sauce and the sweet chilli sauce, toss to coat and add the fresh coriander.

  5. Eat immediately.
