“I got this recipe from "who knows where" I can't remember, but have had it on an index card forever. I still haven't made it, but DH is going to be pheasant hunting again so I dug it out and plan to prepare it this season. Wish me luck! I made this for dinner and had to make a few changes to the recipe. The broth cooked away within 20 minutes of cooking so added in more to prevent burning. I cooked in an electric skillet. DH and I enjoyed it.”
