I'd give this more stars if I could. I loved this recipe. I've never tried rabbit cooked in this manner but certainly will make it again. I only had 1/2 of a rabbit and didn't need anywhere close to 2 cups of oil but other than reducing the oil to about 1/2 cup I make it as written. It took about 1 1/2 hours to get the rabbit tender. Thanks for posting this great recipe.

Ended up very tasty indeed! I used two whole rabbits that I cut up and didn't have any green pepper handy. I left the rest as is listed and even my hub asked for more. Two rabbits were gone in very short order with only 3 eating the meal! Kudos!

I usually fry rabbit with flour salt, pepper and paprika but this time I added green pepper and sliced white onion, I think there is a mistake in the amount of oil. I did not use that much or the drippings would be swimming in the oil. I served the gravy over biscuits. Thaks for posting.
