jesus cut the cook time by at least 20 minutes. the pheasant was so dry it squeeked. sauce was good but that cook time just reinforced why people hate wild game
This was excellent! I will try it next with chicken breasts and add morels...
DH and I both thought this was excellent!! We both went back for seconds on the sauce. The pheasant came out moist and tender. The flavor was every bit as good as the ingredients leads you to believe. I will be making this again. Thanks, JanRoundOz for posting.
