4-Whole Pheasant Breasts, skinless
2- Shallots, chopped
1 Garlic Clove, Chopped
1-Cup Porcini Mushrooms
¼ Cup Port Wine
¼ Cup Pecans, Chopped
¼ Panko Bread Crumbs
Zest of half of an Orange
Thyme & Rosemary
4-5 slices of Prosciutto
Sweat the shallots over medium heat in a cast iron pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the chapped garlic and cook for about 1 minute. Then add the mushrooms and continue to cook for 2 minutes, and then add the Port Wine to the pan. Cook till the mushrooms are tender. Add the chopped pecans, orange zest and season with thyme and rosemary. Take off the heat and fold in the panko breadcrumbs.
Using a knife carefully butterfly the pheasant breast, making sure not to cut all the way through. Then take about 2 tablespoons of the filling and place in inside the pheasant breast. Repeat with the remaining pheasant breasts. Then gently lay a slice of prosciutto on a cutting board. Place the pheasant breast on top and roll the prosciutto around the breast so that it is covered in the prosciutto. Then place the wrapped breast on top of plastic wrap and roll into a tight sausage type roll.
Place all the wrapped pheasant breasts inside of vacuum sealable bags and vacuum the air out. Place in a water batch and cook sous vide at 147F for 1 hour.
Remove from the water bath and take out of the bags. In a skillet over high heat, heat 3 tablespoons of canola oil add the cooked pheasant breasts and sear on all sides till the prosciutto is nice and crispy.
