    The slow cooker and game are a match made in heaven and this pheasant and beef stew is a taste sensation. Cooking the pheasant and beef slowly results in flavours that are rich and pronounced, ideal for a special winter dinner party gathering. Serve with a full bodied red for the table.

    This was a lovely meal, I even got two people who never tried pheasant before to eat it and they loved it. The only thing I did differently was I added a scotch bonnet to give it a nice kick  -  20 Jan 2017
