This recipe comes up annually during Oktoberfest at our house. We love it. It is true German comfort food hunter style! Based on a recipe from Bernard Clayton's Cooking Across America. He says, "If wild rabbits are not at hand, try domestic ones. Either way, delicious, especially when served with potato pancakes, rye bread, and beer." It calls for a 5-quart roaster or flameproof casserole with tight-fitting lid; I use my Dutch oven.
