    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    Rabbit is truly delicious and very lean - yet rich-tasting. This is a delicious preparation with bacon and red wine and tastes best with mashed potatoes or buttery egg noodles. It doesn't take long to prepare, but long slow cooking does make it even better.

      This is the first time I have cooked rabbit, and it turned out very well. The meat was tender, and the liquid had lots of flavor. I added some chervil and tarragon, as well as some chanterelle mushrooms and artichoke hearts for extra vegetables. Overall, a nice, easy dish that tastes good on a cold, wet evening. This would also be very good with chicken thighs.

      Awesome stuff! Added some extra wine/beef stock, tossed in carrots and mushrooms too and came out with a very tasty stew.

      This was excellent - rabbit was tender, sauce was tasty. I used 2 fryer rabbits, cut-up. I also put some quartered potatoes on top, but they needed a little extra microwaving after an hour.
