This is a Peruvian recipe from http://peru-recipes.com. Posted for ZWT7. The original recipe uses peanuts roasted and ground. Although I have not made this recipe I think you could substitute peanut butter and better still if you can find roasted peanut butter. I would substitute about 400g prepared peanut butter but that is really and guestimation. If you don't like it hot, leave out the chilli.

Directions

  1. Marinate the rabbit for 12 hours in vinegar seasoned with salt, pepper, cumin and 2 bay leaves.
  2. After that time, remove and dry well. Heat oil and butter and add onion and chilli. Sauté a few minutes, add the rabbit pieces and fry until golden.
  3. Add about 2 to 3 cups water or broth, roasted peanuts and cook until tender. This will depend on the toughness of the rabbits. 1 1/2 hours should give you a tender meat.
  4. Serve hot with grained white rice.
