    I was at a loss when my hunter DH came home with lots of pheasant for me to cook. A family friend gave me this recipe and it is DELICIOUS!

      I really enjoyed this, although, my pheasant got a bit dry. And i even cooked it 15 minutes less than suggested! It would have been inedible if i had cooked it the full time. Maybe I had it simmering too high? Not sure, since no one else seemed to have this issue. Otherwise, the flavor was great. I would definitely try this again. Everyone enjoyed this, but also thought it was dry. I served with herbed oven-roasted potatoes and carrots.

      Well, I do not know how big your pheasants are, but mine were 3 1/2 pounds, and splitting them into halves was a monster job. I finally managed with a pair of heavy duty wire cutters, and even then, the result looked more like fresh road kill then something bought from the poulterer. Next time, I will freeze the birds and run them through the ribbon saw. My next problem was that it took far too long to evaporate all the liquid. But.... the end result was gloriously delicious. I served the pheasant with small, rosemary, salt and black pepper basted potatoes.
      Thanks for the recipe. Dolf

      Unbelievable! My son brought home wild pheasant last night; I had NO idea what to do with it! I followed the recipe exactly with one exception: I didn't have pumpkin pie spice; I used Chinise five spice instead. What can I say..this dish is hall of fame material. Thank you!
