What You'll Need

  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 cups port wine
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Pheasant, about 3 pounds

How to Make It

  1. Pheasant can taste really gamey; the trick is to marinate it. I use a quartered (small) onion, 1 small bay leaf, 1 clove of garlic, 2 cups of port wine, 1 1/2 tsp. salt & 1/2 tsp pepper.
  2. Be sure the marinade covers the pheasant and let marinate in the refrigerator for 2 days, remove from marinade (discard the marinade), place in a casserole dish with 2 tablespoons butter and roast at 375° for around 45 minutes, or until done.
  1. This is really good served with wild rice!
