Recipe by Monica in PA

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.
