South Dakota: Pastry-Topped Pheasant Stew
Although the ring-necked pheasant isn't native to the Mount Rushmore State (it was introduced in 1898), it has thrived and become the state bird. Wild pheasant brings full, dark-meat flavor to this stew baked in individual servings with a crown of pastry. Time-consuming? Yes. Worth it? Yes, especially for entertaining.
