DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter in saucepan and saute onion.
  • Heat butter mixture until golden brown.
  • Fry rabbit in butter until evenly browned and sealed.
  • Add the water and simmer for 1-5 hours with the water only *just* moving because the meat will toughen if it boils.
  • My dad usually makes this without the bouquet garni in the pot-- he gets wild rabbits on the farm in New Zealand and they seem to be strong enough in flavour to not need it.
  • I buy my bunnies in the Dutch supermarket and think that the additional herbs*are* needed as these are farmed rabbits and don't have the same taste.
