Season and sauté the pheasant as in the preceding recipe and when two-thirds cooked, add 10 button mushrooms cooked in butter. Complete the cooking in the usual manner and arrange the pheasant and mushrooms in a deep dish.

Deglaze the pan with a little mushroom essence, add a few drops of lemon juice and a little Game Stock; reduce and thicken and enrich it with 50 g (2 oz) butter. Pour this sauce over the pheasant and mushrooms.
