I made this with grouse and chicken breast (Hubby likes grouse but I prefer chicken). I added some oregano to the flour and added chopped carrots and a few mushrooms to the onions and celery. DELICIOUS!!! Hubby loved the grouse and I loved the chicken! I served it over mashed potatoes and it was GREAT! Have tried many grouse recipes and this is a keeper! One of the best I have tried. Thanks ladypit!
My hubby came home from hunting with 3 grouse. I've tried various recipes before and have always ended up with a super chewy lump of meat before that ended up in the garbage. Thankfully this recipe proved my bad luck with grouse wrong!!!! It was delicious. Very tender flakey meat. I did use chicken broth instead of water, but other than that I didn't alter the recipe. Thanks for the great recipe. Always nice seeing wild game recipes on food.com!!
My first time cooking grouse - I used chicken broth instead of plain water and added a bit of oregano to the flour... The grouse turned out remarkably tender with no game-taste at all. This is a keeper!
I added carrots and mushrooms along with the celery and onions and left them in large chunks, carrots quartered, mushrooms in half, same with celery and onion, then added 1/2 cup dry wine instead of water to pheasant, covered with thyme, parsley, salt and fresh ground pepper----wow
Excellent, excellent, excellent!! This is a dish that the main ingredient is out front and center. It is not over powered by the other ingredients. I did cut the recipe in half and also used the tiny carrots, boiled. They worked great..I sauted them (about 1/2 cup) with the celery and onion till tender. I cooked everything in a cast iron skillet and covered with the cast iron lid. This came out moist, tender and you can really taste the pheasant. Thanks ladypit for posting
