I learned creative ways to prepare game while cooking for hunters at a lodge in Alaska, where my husband was a guide. Everyone enjoyed this savory stir-fry. It looks as good as it tastes. —Darlene Kenning, Hutchinson, Minnesota


  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1-1/3 cups water
  • 1 boneless skinless pheasant breast (about 3/4 pound), cut into strips
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 cup fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 cup each julienned carrots, celery and onion
  • 1 cup frozen snow peas
  • Hot cooked white or wild rice


  1. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, soy sauce, ginger and bouillon until blended. Add water; set aside. In a skillet or wok, stir-fry pheasant in 1 tablespoon oil for 3-4 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
  2. Add remaining oil to pan. Stir-fry broccoli and carrots for 2 minutes. Add the celery, onion and peas; stir-fry until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Stir soy sauce mixture and add to the skillet; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Return meat to pan and heat through. Serve with rice.
