Ostrich Steaks
--------------
2 Ostrich Filets 6 oz.

Partially cook two slices of bacon or pancetta until slightly rendered.
Wrap each filet with a strip of the bacon, fastening with a toothpick.

Preset oven temperature to 250.

On hot fire, heat up a cast-iron skillet, sprinkle a half teaspoon of
kosher or sea salt and wait until the salt begins to smoke.

Lightly pepper both sides of the filets and sear 1 minute per side and
place skillet in the oven with a piece of foil loosely over the meat. Leave
for 10 or 15 minutes. Meat will become evenly pink inside.

until the mushroom begin to give up their liquid.

Add 1/2 cup of red wine, salt, pepper and nutmeg, and simmer covered for 
two minutes. Serve over the filets.
