I'll get the ball rolling with...

Rosemary Rabbit

Ingredients
Plain flour
Oil for the pan
1 brown onion finely chopped
1 teaspoon of corn flour
1 cup of chicken or vegi stock
2 level teaspoons of rosemary
1/2 cup of white wine.
1/2 cup of cream
1/4 teaspoon of tumeric
Salt & pepper to taste

Method

The rabbit can be carefully deboned and cut into bite sized peices or simply quatered into larger peices to be eaten form the bone.

Coat the rabbit peices in flour and shallow fry untill browned.
Put the rabbit peices to one side and drain most of the oil from the pan.
Cook the onion until its transparent.
Mix together the wine, corn flour, stock, tumeric and cream.
Add mixed ingredients to the pan and gently simmer and stir with the onion untill slightly reduced.
Sit the browned rabbit peices in the pan with the sauce and continue slowly reducing untill you have a nice thick consistency.
( 20 / 30 minutes on low heat )
Add salt and pepper to taste

Serve with beans and mash potatoes
Also goes well with rice or pasta.

This recipe can also be easily adapted to the slow cooker for the ultimate slow cooked rabbit that falls off the bone.

Slow cooked rabbit stew
recipe-image-legacy-id--776561_11.jpg
recipe-image-legacy-id--776561_11.jpg (39.34 KiB) Viewed 1494 times


Ingredients

140g prune
50ml brandy
50g soft brown sugar
2 rabbits, jointed
plain flour, for dusting
1 tbsp vegetable oil
3 rashers smoked streaky bacon, sliced into thin strips
2 carrots, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 celery sticks, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 thyme sprigs
1 bay leaf
150ml red wine, the best you can afford
250ml chicken stock
chopped parsley and wild rice or mash potatoes to serve with.

Method

Heat oven to 150C/130C fan/gas 2. Put the prunes in a bowl with the brandy and brown sugar, stir, then set aside to soak.
Dust the rabbit in the flour. Heat the oil in a large flameproof dish and brown the rabbit all over until golden – you may have to do this in batches. Set the rabbit aside. Add the bacon, vegetables, garlic and herbs to the dish and fry for 5 mins until starting to colour.
Pour in the red wine and scrape all the goodness off the bottom of the dish. Add the chicken stock and put the rabbit back in the dish with the boozy prunes, then cover and cook for 2 hrs, stirring occasionally, until the rabbit is totally tender.
Serve scattered with parsley and mash potatoes or rice.
Gun control requires concentration and a steady hand.

Sounds good to me OOW,

I normally soak my rabbits in White Vinegar for a day before cooking to get rid of any of the gaminess etc, then soak them in a milk/egg white mix or a few hrs before cooking. I usually roll them in plain flower and put them through a milk/egg wash then coat them in a southern chicken coating I buy from the shops or use my own crum depending on how I feel and what's in the cupboard so to speak, then I give them a shallow fry for a few mins until brown then I bake them in the oven until tender on a bed of sliced onions and mushies and about 20mins or so before they are finally cooked I add some chicken stock and a packet of steak diane sauce to cover them 3 qtrs or so and just let that cook for a bit until they are lovely and tender and the sauce thickens - they come up great that way (meat just falls off the bone usually). I try and use spring type bunnies not the old big bucks or anything like that (I'm after a nice feed not a chewy one) an the young milky bunnies seem to fit the bill nicely I find. :drinks:

Basic, i know! But it works a treat :drinks:


Yep I do the same, back legs and backstrap (still on the bone) and maybe the front legs if they are meaty enough otherwise they get left for prey animals to eat.

Damn you mob are making me hungry.... :twisted:

I like to do them like chicken nuggets with or without a dipping sauce....

Corn flour the nuggets, egg and bread crumb or corn crumb, can even rice crumb if you like. (Some times I add some finely chopped chives along with some salt and pepper in the process) just coat with finely chopped chives S and P, then re flour egg crumb with either of the crumbing options...Then chuck them in the fridge for a bit, as it seems to make the crumbs stay on better...

Then deep or shallow fry them, both methods work well... As would the oven I'm sure but have not tried..

Make a dipping sauce that you like and enjoy... I like a simple Dianne style sauce ( some cream and some more chopped chives along with some Worcestershire sauce to taste) Have also added some finely chopped chilies and I rather liked that variation too..

Hey If you are lazy just use a dipping sauce you like with chicken nuggets. I prefer rabbit nuggets over chicken ones with or without dipping sauce !

I fillet out the backstraps for the kids and they go nuts over them. My wife tenderizes them, puts them in cornflour then fries them while they are still warm.

Rabbit in Red Wine/Tomatoes

easy one, good for camping.

1. Brown rabbit pieces in lubricant of choice
2. Remove rabbit, sauté onion and garlic in same pot
3. Add dried rosemary, bay leaves and a sprinkle of thyme. Fry a little till fragrant.
4. Add tin tomatoes and a good swig of red wine.
5. Season and bring to boil. Reduce heat by turning down gas on campfire.
6. Add browned rabbit, simmer covered for an hour or two, add water if it starts to dry out.
7. Drink rest of the bottle of red wine.
8. Throw in root veggies towards the end so they're still crunchy (or earlier if you want em soft).
7. Garnish with good handful of parsley.

Now that the mushrooms are out .... :thumbsup:

Creamy Rabbit, Bacon and Mushroom Casserole

Ingredients

2-3 rabbits
sectioned

1 cup all-purpose flour
seasoned with 1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
and a teaspoon of paprika



Sauce

2 cups white wine (or chicken broth)

2 cups heavy cream

2 tablespoons of whostshire souce

2 tablespoons of brandy or musket

2 sweet onions
diced

6 slices of bacon
diced

10 button mushrooms
sliced

200 grams smoked gouda cheese
shredded (or whatever cheese you want)

4 cloves garlic, crushed, minced

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

3 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons corn flour

Add salt to taste.

Cooking Instructions
In a heavy skillet, melt three tablespoons of butter over medium-high. heat Add the diced onions and salt lightly. Sautee the onions until soft and translucent. Add the garlic and sliced mushrooms. Cover the skillet and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until mushrooms are soft and onions are carmalized.

In a heavy Dutch oven, render the diced bacon until crisp. Remove and reserve. While bacon cooks, toss the rabbit in seasoned flour mixture. Brown the rabbit, a few pieces at a time, in the bacon grease over medium-high heat. Cook for two minutes per side or until the rabbit takes on a golden color. Remove each batch to a warm plate and continue cooking until all of the rabbit has been browned. Once all of the rabbit has cooked, return it to the Dutch oven, layering if necessary. Turn off the heat and cover the pot to keep the rabbit warm.

Brown the rabbit in oil.


To the onions and mushrooms, add two tablespoons of flour. Stir well. Pour in two cups of white wine or chicken stock. Bring to a boil. Once sauce starts to thicken, add the heavy cream,Worcestershire sauce, brandy or musket and season with black pepper and paprika. Add the shredded gouda cheese and cooked bacon. Stir well.

Pour the sauce over the browned rabbit in the Dutch oven. Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and transfer to a pre-heated 325 degree oven. Bake 90 minutes or until rabbit is tender. Older, larger rabbits or hares might take the full 90 minutes, younger, smaller rabbits less time. Start checking after 60 minutes by piercing a larger piece of rabbit with a fork to see if it pulls easily from the bone.

Serve over pasta, rice or with a generous helping of mash potatoes.... and a nice beer. :drinks:

Then rinsed off, drained & coated in the mix & left in fridge to set.

Pulled out the fridge for couple hours then dropped in the wok in hot cheap canola oil... (from Aldi...lol)
This is half the bunny.

No kidding,, it was incredibly juicy & tender, & the peppery flavour of the mix went well with the sweet young bunny flavour... :clap:
Even the normally dry saddle was like a young tender juicy chicken breast except it had flavour...!!!

No worries OOW...plagerise away--i did... :lol: .

I think it was Big fella that i first saw post that coating as part of his recope, then Marksman with his Kentuky fried rabbit...so its not really mine...but im happy to take the accolade's... :D

Although i had never tried the buttermilk soak before so that turned out a winner...it pushes the meal price up, but im not game to try it without now.

Greek yogurt works wonders for tenderising them too...!!

Ive found a local place that sells that type of coating mix in bulk, even got gluten & msg free ones so if they work out ill post it up...
