One of my favorite ways is a quick and easy Korean-style recipe. It keeps everyhting nice and moist (as pheasant can easily be too dry), and fall-off-the-bone tender.

Cut up a pheasant and brown the pieces in a skillet with oil (just for a few minutes, you're not trying to cook it all the way through).

Then put the browned pheasant into the following mixture (cast iron dutch oven or glass casserole dish works well):

1 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
3 cloves chopped garlic
2-3 tsp sugar
crushed red pepper to taste (a few tablespoons is about right)

Throw on the lid and put it in the oven at 350 for about 30 min.

I'll take a few pictures next time I cook it.

I like to just breast them and pour a can of cream of mushroom and roasted garlic soup over them.

I have a recipe at home and will post it later on today but it is skinless pheasant breast done in brown butter, capers, garlic, and ???. I cannot remember the rest but it is served on a bed of spinach and if not overcooked is great! :thumbsup:

Here you go

6Tbls Butter
1 tsp Fresh Sage leaves, minced or 1/2 tsp dried sage leaves
2 Tbls Capers, rinsed and drained
2 tsps lemon juice
1/3 cup tomatos, seeded and diced. Kosher salt and ground pepper
4 pheasant breast halves, skin on or off (I take mine off) salt and pepper
2 Tbls butter
1/4 dry white wine
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 lb baby spinach, rinsed and patted dry

Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat and stir frequently until foam subsides and butter is a light brown color and smells a little nutty, but not burnt. This normally takes about 4-5 mins.

Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl and stir in sage, capers, lemon juice, tomato and salt and pepper to taste.

Season pheasant breasts with salt and pepper. wipe out pan with a paper towel. Heat butter, (not butter sauce) over medium heat and saute pheasant until lightly browned on both sides. Add white wine and garlic and saute for 3 more mins.

For each serving, place a small mound of spinach on plates, place pheasant on spinach and spoon butter sauce over.
