      Melt the butter in a heavy pan and fry the meat with the leeks and garlic till the vegetables are slightly softened and the meat lightly browned.

      Well, DrGaellon, this FAR exceeded my expectations. I picked the recipe because we've been eating a bit of barley lately, but thought that it ( the recipe) was a little simple. Boy was I wrong-it is simple but so delicious. We are lucky to have family on a farm, who shoot, and keep us in plenty of wild rabbit, so we eat lots in lots of ways. I said it was really good while Russ said it was one of the best, we've eaten. I halved the butter, seasoned the rabbit in the beginning, threw in a few sprigs of fresh thyme as the dish cooked, then halved the fresh sage at the end, otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks so much for posting. Not a very photogenic recipe, but delicious none the less!
