100 % Wild British Pheasant

Please note all our game is wild and shot and although every effort is made to remove any shot on rare occasions traces of shot may be found.

 

Oven Ready Pheasants are a very lean bird and will dry out quickly when cooking, it is therefore very important not to over cook the Pheasant as it will spoil the flavour of the bird. To help the bird from drying out when cooking after seasoning place strips of streaky bacon on the breast and legs of the bird.

To roast your Oven Ready Pheasant:

Preheat oven 220C , 200C Fan , Gas Mark 7

Oil and season Oven Ready Pheasant and Cover with streaky bacon.

Place in hot oven for 20 minutes basting regularly.

After 20 minutes turn the oven down to 180c, 160C fan, Gas Mark 4 and continue to cook for a further 35 - 40 minutes basting regularly.

15 minutes before end of cooking remove the bacon to allow the skin to crisp.

Remove the bird from the oven cover with foil and leave to rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Serve with roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables and gravy.
