Can I Serve Pheasant Without Cooking It?

I love pheasant but I don’t always want to cook. Is there anyone else out there with the same thought? The first time I tasted pheasant it was served with crackers, fruit, and cheese. The pheasant was hickory smoked pheasant served with two types of dip-mustard and a horseradish sauce. I couldn’t stop going back for the pheasant. The taste was so unique and flavorful. I asked my hostess how she had prepared the pheasant, thinking it must be a complicated endeavor. 

That’s how I found out about hickory smoked pheasant at MacFarlane Pheasants, Inc. The pheasant came fully cooked and was then pulled apart into pieces. I was immediately reminded of pulling apart a rotisserie chicken for a recipe. It is as easy as that! Pull the pre-cooked pheasant apart, put it on a pretty dish, and add the sauces on the side. Now, that is my idea of a delicious simple meal without all the fuss! 

Another thought you might want to try is to slice the meat thin, buy some excellent bread and make sandwiches with fresh tomato and your favorite mayo. I’ll admit I haven’t tried this one yet, but my mouth is watering as I write this. I know that the fully cooked smoked pheasant is an excellent addition to a salad. I like to make a salad with spring greens, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, red onion, cherry tomatoes, shredded cheddar, smoked pheasant and ranch dressing. It is out of this world.

You might want to cook, once in a while, so I would recommend downloading the free cookbook provided by MacFarlane pheasants on their website. There are many delicious ways to cook and serve pheasant. If you want to order the smoked pheasant and try one of the ideas mentioned in this post, stop in at MacFarlane Pheasants retail store at 2821 US-51, Janesville WI or order hickory smoked pheasant at their online store. You won’t be disappointed.
