I have run into a lot of people that have sad they have never tried rabbit or that they don’t like it. I think rabbit is a very tender meat if done correctly. It can be a little chewy depending on the age of the rabbit. Last night I decided to use my Le Creuset Brasier to make it and I have to say, it captured the essence in the flavor of the sauce. To make the sauce I braised the meat first then added leeks, shallots, and garlic; and cooked that for a bit. Then added fresh herbs of rosemary and thyme. I had to add my favorite kind of mushrooms, shiitake. They just hold so much flavor. I also added some orange zest. For the broth I used a white wine and chicken broth.
A little tip for you: If you want a creamy sauce add about 2 tablespoons of flour with the broth. This will give it that creaminess that you want.

My dad use to hunt rabbit. I don’t know where because we lived in the city. He would kill it, skin it and cook it. It tasted very good. I thought it had a sweet taste to it. I really have not had it much in my adult life. 🙂
it kinda reminds me of pork but yes there is a hint of sweetness to it. You should go out and get some
Well, I am vegetarian now. But I still remember what it taste like. 🙂
O Im sorry. Well I will keep you in mind when I cook certain things 😉
Thank you so much. That means a lot to me. I enjoy all the food pictures and recipes even if they have meat. I am the only one in my family who is vegetarian so I still cook meat dishes for them. 🙂
Aww thats nice of you. I mean alot of meals can you can just take the meat out and enjoy it. Im Brazilian so we are big meat eaters, But I do like my veggie said come out once in a while. 😉
I have fond memories of rabbit stew, this looks terrific.
Thanks Tom 😉
I love using the bread for deepingin the sauce.
I love rabbit. My friend the Wicklow Hunter occasionally drops a brace in to me. Lovely in a stew. Yours looks excellent. Wishing you a great Christmas and looking forward to more delicious dishes.
This sounds delicious! I love my dutch oven. OvenS. I have two now – I bought a second one – 8 liters! Big enough to cook a large portion of stuffed peepers 🙂
Thanks! Wow that is a big one. 😉
I am so making this next week!
I love rabbit and when I was a child it was the most usual meat we ate, because it was the cheapest (so you can tell I’m pretty old!). Our Christmas treat was chicken, which was pretty much a luxury. How things have changed (I’m talking more than 60 years ago). Italian and Brazilian much e a great combination, gastronomically speaking.
