    1. Dredge the pheasant pieces in the seasoned flour. Heat the butter in a casserole, and brown the pheasant pieces on all sides. Remove from casserole and set aside.
    2. Saute mushrooms and onions in the casserole until browned. Add pheasant back to pan, along with the remaining ingredients. Cover and cook over low heat about 1 hour or until tender.


    You can season plain flour with simply salt and pepper to coat the pheasant, or you can add your favourite dried herbs. You can also use plain flour without seasonings.
