    Well I've just discovered that my local butcher carries rabbit, and I always love trying new things (especially game meats). So I'm home alone tonight and figured I'd cook up some rabbit! Looking for any good recipe preferably by backing, broiling, grilling, but not too into the stew. So what's out there?

    I like to part it out , boil for 30 to 45 minutes, then coat with bbq sauce and grill on low heat or indirect. Can't beat it. Bill in mi

    do it just like fried chicken, finish it in oven with a small amount of water covered. Make your gravy & enjoy. When I fry it I use a large covered skillet to sweat it a little. The only thing as good is Walleye

    Here's a variation you could try:

    Ingredients

    1 medium elephant


    2 (50 gallon) containers broth

    500 lbs assorted fresh vegetables, chopped

    2 rabbits (optional)


    Directions

    1) Cut elephant into bite-size pieces.

    2) This takes about 2 months.

    3) Using large kettles, simmer equal parts elephant and vegetables with enough broth to cover.

    4) Cook for a couple days.

    5) If more are expected add the rabbits, but do this only if necessary.

    6) Most people don't like to find hare in their stew.

    When I was a kid in the Boy Scouts. We'd shoot a Rabbit, clean it, put chunks on sticks, sprinkle salt and pepper, then squrt lemon juice from those plastic lemons all over the Rabbit. Then cook them over an open campfire. Greatttttt...

    Best if made in a Pot Pie . Love it and even my wife does too . Find a Chicken Pot Pie recipe and substitute it with rabbit . I don`t hunt anymore but still crave that for dinner . Maybe I will look for some clean road kills ?????

    If it's a young domestic fryer rabbit, throw it in the skillet just like chicken, though you don't want to cook it as long. If it's a stewing rabbit then it will be too tough fried.

    Hi,

    All but a very young wabbit will try you teeth and jaws.

    Pan fry bald or flowered till really brown.

    Place in slow cooker for 5-6 hours, it will fall off the bones. I use Onions and Celery plus some broth to taste.

    Take care,

    Jim

    Like all other game, just don't over cook it. And if you do, then stew it till it falls apart.
    You can cook it exactly like you would cook pheasant and it is great.

    Well its kind of complicated but it starts with you going out on a frigid January morning and tramping through the snow until you see a plump cottontail sitting under a bush and you put a .22 round through its eye. Next you bring said critter back to the ranch and skin it and wash the meat really well because grandma will make you wash it again if it isn't real clean. Which gets us to step three; give the cleaned rabbit to Grandma who will perform magic with the critter using a big cast iron fry pan and ordinary seasonings. (this part of the recipie cannot be duplicated). Then if you behave and don't ask annoying questions like 'when is dinner?' you will get some of the best eating possible - so good that you will remember it for life.
