Ostrich Steaks With Mushroom Vanilla Sauce and Wild Rice With As

Here is a recipe I have seen on a few sites, some have all the same ingredients, some vary. I have adapted the recipe for what Ingredients I can get in my part of the world and also for personal taste. It sounds like there are a lot of ingredients, with a lot to do, to make it. It is not as a big as it sounds and the end result is gorgeous, with all the flavours really coming together to create a wonderful dish.
