275ml of chicken stock

2 tablespoons redcurrant jelly


Place a tablespoon of olive oil in a wok/large saucepan and heat. Add the bacon and onion and lightly fry. Add the pheasant and brown all over. Turn the heat down and add remaining ingredients and leave to simmer for approximately 50 minutes or until the meat easily comes away from the bones. Remove the pheasant from the liquid and strip off all the meat. Return the meat to the liquid and thicken to taste

This can be made in advance and frozen and then reheated in a slow cooker or saucepan.

Serve with sauté potatoes and green beans.
