Just like to thank Ian for making this sub section :)

But here goes, sorry no pictures but I can assure you it is lovely!

Serves about 8 depending on size of pot and serving size.

2 3/4 grown rabbits
3 Carrots
3 Potatoes
1 Turnip
1 Swede
2 Celery sticks
1 onion or leek (I prefer leek)
1 oxo cube
Enough water to cover
Bit of flour

Chop up the veg into nice sized chunks.
Take all the meat of the rabbits and chop into good sized chunks

Melt a nob of butter in your pan
Lightly dust the meat with flour and brown the meat in the melted butter.
add the other ingredients and fill the pan up with water so it is covering ingredients, and then crumble the oxo cube in the pan.

Give it a good stir aand bring to a simmer.
Leave it on a low/medium flame to simmer for about an hour to an hour and half or until you think it is cooked.

Now I like this with dumplings, and my favourite dumplings to go with this is nettle dumplings, I will post that recipe later.

Serve and enjoy.

Joe

Good recipe, I like a good stew.
You can make your own chicken stock by boiling up the split bones and reducing it, more healthy than oxo cubes!
We sometimes use a little crushed black pudding for richness. :snack:

A good solid recipe there, Joe.

My secret ingredients to really take a rabbit stew to the next level:

fry off some lardons first til crispy and set aside to add later with some smoked sausage, cubed. A few sprinkles of flaked chilli add a bit of kick to it and I also deglaze the pan from the lardons and browning off the bunny meat with red wine vinegar.
By this point, I'm beginning to feel I should have put my whole recipe up, lol!

Cheers

Duncan.

Nice receipe but not sure of oxo I would use chicken stock but try a handful of pearl barley helps to thicken it and ads great flavour.

Cook your rabbit (with bones) until the meat starts to come off, take out rabbit, let cool for a while, remove all meat from bones, replace meat in stock and ad veg. Cook until veg is done.
I also find browning rabbit in a pan before stewing makes it tougher.

same as lee green,, although i cook my veg with the rabbit , apart from the potatoes, i add them when i put the meat in removed from the bone,, i also cheat and use one of those colemans beef cassarole mixes, they come in a packet,,,,,,,another tip is use a few sweet potatoes instead of turnip, wow, but as with regular potatoes put them in at the end
