- Next dip in flour and brown gently in butter in a frying pan.
- Deglaze pan with a small amount of water.
- Place this with pheasant in a roasting pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Put enough sour cream in pan to make its depth 1 inch and add 1/8 lb. of butter for each bird.(I always cook more than 1 bird at a time)
