This year I am trying to cook more often and with more creativity. My boyfriend’s a hunter, which means a bunch of fun game meat to cook with!
Recently I was craving tacos and had some pheasant thawed out! The problem is most recipes require at least 12 hours in a crockpot. Here’s how I improvised:
Four pheasant breasts (be sure to remove any extra pellets). Homemade taco seasoning:
Heat three cups of water in a large sauce then add some butter and half of a chopped red onion:
Boil some rice then set out to the side. Mix two tablespoons of the taco seasoning in the pan and rub one tablespoon on the pheasant sliced:
Add the pheasant in the pan and cook for 5 minutes. Then add in the rice and any additional yummy veggies you have (even frozen). Let cook covered for 10 min:
Cut a bigger piece of pheasant in half to be sure it’s cooked. You can serve in tacos, pita bread over salad or plain. I had mine over spinach with ranch and then in pita for lunch the next day:
If you have any good recipes and want to share them, I’d love to test them out!
