Konijn Met Bier (Belgian style rabbit)

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Taylor in Belgium

Always a favorite way to serve rabbit in Belgium, using the popular Kriek or cherry beer. Also served with french/belgian fries.

Your recipe is quite tasty and I made very little change; just added some celery and quartered the onion and sliced rather than dicing small. I used the Madeira and loved the taste. I also baked it at 350 for an hour and then 15 minutes with the lid off. Thank you for posting this, I will make it again :)
