Slow Cooker Wisconsin Pheasant (Sconnie Style)

  • Cooking Time:

    6–8 Hours
  • Servings:



2 Whole Pheas­ants or 4 Breast­ed Pheas­ants (Just the breasts with the cen­ter bone)
> Most Wis­con­sin, Min­neso­ta and Iowa Hunters breast their Pheas­ants
1 (any) oz. can of sauer­kraut
1 Medi­um Onion
2 Granny Smith Apples
4 Strips of Thick ( Smoked if pos­si­ble ) Bacon
2 Cups of White Wine or Chick­en Stock
Salt & Pep­per to taste

Recent­ly in con­ver­sa­tion I was talk­ing with Mike K., and he told me about a great Pheas­ant Recipe he had, and he was kind enough to share with me! As you will see through the post this is an easy recipe to pre­pare, and sounds YUMMY! Thanks Mike for shar­ing! 🙂

  1. Clean Pheas­ant ( or breasts ) well. Check for Shot pel­lets if birds were wild.
  2. Pour entire can of Sauer­kraut into bot­tom of slow cook­er.
  3. Chop Onion & Apples into small chunks. Add on top of Sauer­kraut.
  4. Add Wine or Chick­en Stock.
  5. Place Pheas­ant in slow cook­er breasts side up on top of Sauer­kraut, Onion & Apple chunks. Salt & pep­per Pheas­ant breasts to taste. ( Gen­er­ous­ly… )
  6. Cut bacon strips in half. Lay strips over the Breasts cov­er­ing the entire breasts.
  7. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 6–8 hours. The short­er the cook­ing time the high­er the tem­per­a­ture set­ting.
  8. The meat will fall off the bone.

Serv­ing Options: Serve 1/2 Breast on a bed of the Sauer­kraut mix. Or, we Debone the Pheas­ant, add the meat to a Brat bun and add the Kraut as top­ping. Awe­some!

Note: If slow cook­er is Large, and there is room, I cut up a lit­tle Kiel­bas­sa (Thin disks) and add for addi­tion­al fla­vor. I’m just say­ing… 🙂

Hap­py Crock­ing!
