Method

How to Cook Pheasant Breast with Savoy Cabbage

  1. Preheat a heavy based frying pan to a low temperature
  2. Season the breasts just prior to cooking
  3. Don't overcrowd the cooking base, a couple of medium sized breasts per pan
  4. Place the breasts on the skin to crisp a little until golden before searing on the flesh side for 1 minute
  5. Add 100ml of water, chicken or game stock to an oven tray
  6. Place the breasts in skin side up
  7. Place in a pre heated oven 200ºc for 8 to 10 minutes for a moist breast, best served slightly pink
  8. Finish by adding a large knob of butter to the pan juices and stir into to create a gravy
  9. Leave to rest in a warm place for at least 5 minutes before carving
  10. The breasts will become more firm as they cook. Gently press with your thumb, the more spring back you get the hotter the protein cells have expanded and the more your pheasant will be cooked
