Braised pheasant and balsamic sauce

Because we serve them so often, I'm always on the lookout for different variations of recipes for pheasant, partridge and ruffed grouse. This easy-to-fix recipe was a real crowd-pleaser at our last game feed.
Start by browning in a large stainless-steel skillet
4 slices of bacon.
Crumble the bacon into bits and reserve in a bowl. Cut breasts from two pheasants or grouse into one-inch strips, season with salt and pepper and roll in flour.
Sauté the meat in the bacon grease until browned on both sides, and then remove to a plate.
To the skillet, add
1 shallot, chopped.
When the shallot is softened, add
3 cloves of garlic
1 cup of homemade gamebird stock or chicken broth.
Bring to a boil, then return the meat to the skillet. Cover and place in a 275-degree oven for at least one hour (two hours is better).
Remove the skillet from the oven and place the meat on a plate while you prepare the sauce.
Heat the skillet and add
4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste.
Bring to a boil, mashing the garlic with a spoon. Stir in the bacon bits and the meat. Taste the sauce. If you can't taste the balsamic vinegar, you may want to add another tablespoon or two.
To serve, place a scoop of mashed potatoes in the center of a plate and lay the strips of meat around the potatoes like spokes of a wheel. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
I like to sauté some portabella mushroom slices in butter (seasoned with steak seasoning) and add them to the sauce just before serving.
