Stuffed Ostrich Fillet With Truffle Sauce

I love ostrich meat as do the rest of my family especially my son. I usually just grill it plain with cafe de paris butter which I will post at a latter date. I love it this way because it allows the lovely flavour of the meat to come through but I thought I would try something different last night. Ostrich meat is similar to beef in cooking times and what goes well with it, I thought I would try black truffles as I make this with beef and it is great. It was very yummy here is the recipe.
