    It does taste like beef, but it's not greasier. The ostrich doesn't store fat inside the muscle, like cows do -- they store it outside the meat. So by the time you get it, the fat has usually been removed. Actually, ostrich meat contains between 1 - 2 grams fat, while beef is usually 17 - 18 grams of fat.

    An interesting fact: ostriches don't have white meat; it's all dark stuff.

    And yes, an ostrich roast (usually from the thigh) will easily fit in an oven.

    I have had it. It is reddish like beef before cooked. It is very lean, dryish tasting and I found that it needed seasoning but the texture was firm, like tender beef. I would eat it again, but it is not my first choice.

    Ours were filets so I don't know about roasts.
