Pheasant in Cream

  • 1 tsp. monosodium glutamate
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup sour (or sweet) cream
  • 1/4 cup cooking fat

Mix seasonings with flour. Dredge pieces of pheasant in seasoned flour, and, if convenient, allow them to (dry on a rack approximately 1/2 hour.

Drizzle 1 to 2 tablespoons of sour or sweet cream (or 1 Tbsp. butter and 1 Tbsp. milk) over each of the browned pheasant pieces in the casserole.
