I purchased five rabbits today from a friend who grows them.

I was hoping you folks might have some simple recipes you would share.

Thanks,

Gary

For domestic rabbits any chicken recipe will work fine. I like to brown and then bake with good mushroom sauce as you would make smothered chicken. Or rabbit chacittore is fine too.

Both previous posters ideas are good....if not fried rabbit can be baked with any chicken recipe that is "saucy"...that is where some liquid covers the meat...it doesnt have the fat inherent in chicken and will dry out otherwise.
Like Same..my fave is fried.... grin
Simple and good!

We had a german guy at our deer camp who made "hassenpheiffer" which although probably mispelled, I think is the german word for rabbit. Anyway it was a fairly complicated recipe that included marinating for 24 hrs, but it was very good. Maybe someone will chime in with the recipe.

Or if you prefer it in print form...


4 to 6 servings

Rabbit, dressed and cut into serving pieces -- 3 pounds
Salt and pepper -- to taste
Flour -- 1/2 cup
Bacon, diced -- 1/3 pound
Shallots or onion, diced -- 5 shallots or 1 onion
Garlic, minced -- 2-3 cloves
Cognac or brandy -- 1/4 cup
Beef broth -- 1 1/2 cups
Red wine -- 1 cup
Lemon, sliced 1/4-inch rounds -- 1
Fresh thyme -- 1 sprig
Fresh rosemary -- 1 small sprig
Whole allspice berries -- 4
Juniper berries -- 3
Whole cloves -- 2
Bay leaf -- 1
Salt and pepper -- to taste
Currant or grape jelly -- 1 tablespoon
Butter -- 2 tablespoons
Flour -- 1/4 cup
Method
Season the rabbit with salt and pepper. Put the flour in a large bowl and add the rabbit to the bowl, tossing the pieces to coat them with the flour. Shake off the excess flour and set the floured rabbit pieces aside.
Add the bacon to a large pot over medium-high heat and sauté to render its fat, 3-4 minutes. Add the shallots or onion and garlic and sauté until translucent and cooked through but not browned. Remove the bacon and shallots or onions to a bowl and set aside. Reserve some of the bacon fat in the pot.
Add more oil to the pot if necessary and return the pot to medium-high flame. Brown the rabbit a few pieces at a time on all sides and set aside.
Reduce heat to medium, and carefully add the cognac or brandy (it may flame up). Cook until its volume is reduced by about half.
Return the rabbit pieces to the pot and add the broth, wine, lemons, thyme, rosemary, allspice, juniper berries, cloves, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
While rabbit is cooking, knead the butter and flour together with your fingers to form a smooth dough. You will use this to thicken the sauce.
When the rabbit is cooked through and tender, remove it to a serving dish. Strain the sauce through a fine sieve, discarding the solids. Stir the reserved bacon and shallots or onion back into the sauce. Add more stock or water if necessary to make about 2 cups.
Return sauce to a simmer on the stove and whisk a small piece of the butter and flour mixture into the sauce and return to a simmer. Keep whisking pieces into the sauce until it reaches a nice consistency. Adjust seasoning, pour the sauce over the rabbit and serve.
Variations
If you can't find or don't have juniper berries, substitute gin for the cognac. Gin gets its flavor from juniper berries.
Vinegar is sometimes used instead of the lemon to add a sour tang to the dish.

So, if you were to substitute snowshoe for chicken in a pot pie, would that make it a hare pie? grin
