Slow Cooker Pheasant with Steamed Broccoli

We decided to find a recipe that might make the tough pheasant meat a little more soft. We opted for this slow cooker recipe and it did not disappoint! The meat simply fell away from the bones and was very good. It was soft and flavorful. The pellets were easier to identify and remove as well compared to either baked or grilled pheasant dishes that we have made in the past.
The broccoli was simply steamed for this side. We also made a side of wild rice mixture.
