Smothered Pheasant

Sharing is caring!

This is my mom’s recipe for preparing the pheasants my dad would bring in during hunting season in Iowa. I use only the breasts from the birds, but you can use the other parts of the pheasant as well. This makes its own gravy that is delicious on mashed potatoes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (6 pound) beef brisket, trimmed of fat
  • 2 (16 ounce) jars dill pickle spears
  • 1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce

Directions:

Place brisket in the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour dill pickle spears and pickle juice over the beef; add barbeque sauce.

Cook on High until beef shreds easily with 2 forks, about 6 hours.
