How to Make Roast Pheasant

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pre-heat oven to 200C./400F./ Gas Mark 6
    Wash the pheasant & dry thoroughly. Brush all over with oil or melted butter, then sprinkle liberally with salt & pepper. Carefully stretch the bacon slices with a sharp knife & use to cover the pheasant.
  • 2Put the pheasant on a rack in a roasting pan & pour in 2 cups of the stock. Roast in the pre-heated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the bird is tender, basting occasionally. Remove the bacon slices for the last 10 minutes to brown the skin.
  • 3When pheasant is ready, transfer to a hot serving dish & arrange the cooked mushrooms around the pheasant. Keep hot. Using the cooked juices in the roasting pan, make a gravy. If the gravy is too thick add the remaining 1/2 cup stock. Serve.
    NB.
    This dish can be served with Bread Sauce instead of Gravy, or both can be served separately. Enjoy.
