Method

Poêlé the pheasant keeping it just cooked.

Place on an oval dish on a layer of well drained sauerkraut braised with goose fat. Surround with a border of rectangles of bacon which has been cooked with the sauerkraut.

Serve accompanied with a gravy prepared from the juices of the cooking of the pheasant and a little Game Stock. Strain carefully but do not remove all of the fat.
