Braised Rabbit

Braised RabbitDawn Bryant of North Platte, Nebraska writes, "My husband and I do a lot of hunting and eat more wild game that domestic meat. I came up with this recipe for wild rabbit, and the meat cooks up tender and tangy with a fresh light sauce. I like to serve it with baked potatoes and steamed broccoli."

Prep time: 20 minutes. Cook time: 45 minutes. Serves four.

  • 1 (2 1/2 pound) dressed rabbit, cut up
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 5 tablespoons cold water

    1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook rabbit in oil until lightly browned; remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, saute onion and garlic until tender. Stir in the broth, thyme, pepper and bay leaf. Return rabbit to pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30-45 minutes or until meat is tender and a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees F.

  • 2. Remove rabbit to a serving platter. Discard bay leaf. Combine the flour, lemon juice and water until smooth; stir into pan juice. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with rabbit. Source:
