About this recipe: Pheasant recipes - especially good ones - are very hard to find! This one results in a moist, tender and delicious pheasant that even my kids love. Its adapted from a recipe a friend passed on to me.
If you aren't equipped with a slow cooker, no worries - simply simmer covered in a casserole or pot on the hob for 1 hour from step 4.
We raise our own pheasants, so I look often, usually in vain, for good recipes. This was quite the winner. The sauce, as well as the slow cooking, took away any toughness or gamy taste. I only had button mushrooms, but the result was still wonderful. Wow! Here is our own "pheasant under glass," if you count the lid of the slow cooker. I think this would work well with nearly any game bird. - 13 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Cooked this twice, once adding spicey sausages. The chilli's in the sausage added a nice flavour and in my opinion, both recipes were wonderfull. Tip: do not exceed the stated cooking time or you'll start to lose flavour in the bird. - 11 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We have had trouble with our pheasant being tough and this recipe solved that problem. The pheasant was fall off the bone tender and the flavors were delicious. It was neither too sweet or bland, and there was plenty of sauce to go over rice. I might next time add a bit of red pepper because we like a little bite to our casseroles. - 19 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
