Rabbit Stew

"When we used to live in the boondocks of Michigan, my dad was a hunter and oh, did he hunt. Let's just say all that all that meat had to be eaten, and eaten by a very picky little girl. This was nearly the only dish made with his hunted goods that I would eat, so it's pretty good."

  1. DELICIOUS!!! The perfect fall or winter supper. And don"t forget the biscuits to go with it to "sop up the gravy" left on the plate.
  2. I had to tweak to my satisfaction, but it was great. My first rabbit.
  3. Perfect balance. So many cooks forget the Bay leaves, which are very important. Only thing I would do different is to saute the onions and brown the rabbit prior to putting them in the crock pot. This will elevate the flavors.


  1. The rabbit: for lack of explicit instruction, I carved the four limbs and two loins off as single chunks for the stew. I put the remaining carcass in water with bay leaves and boquet garni for a stock, which I reduced and added to the stew at the end. Regarding soup consistency: I wanted something "stewy", not watery: when cooking was finished, I removed a couple of chunky cups of the stew, pureed in blender, re-added. I also added a light broth-flour roux. For taste: I added a generous splash of red wine and a squirt of lemon juice

I try to tend a lot to their tastes (she likes traditional comfort foods and he prefers spicer fare) and I am very health concious. I am also an avid baker and run my own bakery business when I'm not at school so I am always looking for and creating new bakery recipes.
