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.
Did EXACTLY like the recipe. My hubby had gone pheasant hunting and was so excited for me to try the recipe. We missed something, I guess...
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.
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.
My husband goes Pheasant hunting every winter and I was looking for something different to do with the birds.
Found this recipe and it is wonderful! Everyone who has tried it couldn't get enough.
Absolutely delicious; easy to put together (after the pheasants are cleaned and cut up). The sauce produced the most tantalizing smells throughout the house and it tasted just as good. The pheasant was very tender, moist and flavorful.
This dish is excellent! I prepared it on Valentine's Day with pheasant we had in the freezer from my husband's hunting trip. I did it almost exactly as written, with perhaps a few more mushrooms and olives than specified. It's a keeper! I've been looking for a good recipe for pheasant for years and this is it! A Keeper! Thank you.
This recipe was absolutely delicious! Added a little smoked paprika to the flour mixture... used shiitake mushrooms instead of crimini and added a 28oz can of diced tomatoes (drained) alongside the sliced olives. Incredible flavors and a great stew-like consistency. And the pheasant was unbelievably tender. Highly recommend this recipe for cooking pheasant. Can't wait to make this again. Thank you!!!
