    I am always looking for new ways to make a dish and I was very happy with this refreshing way to make pheasant. My husband and I love the different tastes of mushrooms and enjoyed the flavors of these two ingredients together. I could not find dehydrated mushrooms at my grocery store so I used fresh button, Shelf, and Shitake mushrooms along with the Portabella. In place of the liquid from the mushrooms I used 1 can of chicken broth. I will definitely make this dish again!  -  27 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a wonderful recipe. I have never had pheasant before. My husband has and he said it was a wonderful recipe, as did my step-son, who would never have tried it if he knew there was pheasant in it!! The mushrooms and rice took all of the gamey flavor out of the bird and left a wonderful taste that I compare to the most flavorful chicken that I have ever eaten. I can't wait to try this recipe when my in-laws visit. They are big game eaters and I know they will love it.  -  20 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have to agree with the other reviewers- this is a phantastic pheasant recipe! The only recommendations I would make: #1- After getting it all put together, put it in a crock pot for 3 more hours and the pheasant really softens up; #2- If you like it hot, like I do, throw in some cayenne or red pepper flake! Thanks for a great recipe.  -  21 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
