Pottage of beans, pearly barley and pheasant with green sauce
Pottage of beans, pearl barley and pheasant with green sauce
Start by poaching the pheasant in the water until the meat starts to fall off the bone.
Carefully scoop out all the bones and solids and separate the meat. Discard all the rest into a bin for the lab to raid later.
Now put half the oil into a heavy casserole dish and add all the chopped vegetables. Soften for 10 minutes and add 10 of the garlic cloves, unpeeled and whole.
Now pour in the pheasant stock and the meat. Add the beans (you may have to soak them overnight first) and the barley and simmer for 90 minutes on a very low heat.
Season to taste. Whizz up the herbs with the remaining garlic and the lemon juice and zest to make a pesto-like sauce.
Serve in bowls with a dollop of sauce to liven things up.
