Spicy Ostrich Roast

I bought 800g Ostrich meat the other day and decided to make roast with it. I thought I would try something a little different as I have not done an ostrich in the oven that was not stuffed and then wrapped in bacon, so it still came out super tender as it should be. Ostrich is a very lean meat with virtually no fat on it, so over cooking it is a disaster. Prep time does not include sitting time.
