3417 Pigeonneaux aux Petits Pois

Method

For each young pigeon, colour in butter 60 g (2 oz) salt belly of pork, cut in dice and blanched and 6 button onions. Remove and colour the pigeons in the same pan. Pour off the fat, deglaze the pan with a little stock and add sufficient Sauce Demi-glace plus 1½ dl (5 fl oz or ⅝ U.S. cup) peas, the bacon and onions, and a Bouquet garni. Cook very gently together until tender and serve as required in a deep dish.
