I had some rabbit that I purchased last year after seeing it in the butcher. I had no idea what to do with it. I made Grilled Saddle of Rabbit (a Recipe Club Newsletter Exclusive) with some of it, but I had the bony legs, and tasty looking loins, all full of bones and I had no idea what to do with them. So they sat waiting patiently, frozen, for when I knew what to do. Then I watched old reruns of the Bugs Bunny Show. Hasenpfeffer anyone? After a classic where Yosemite Sam tries to make Bugs into rabbit stew for the king, I was thus inspired to make my own Grilled Rabbit Stew.
With winter still battering us in the northern areas of North America, a good stew is just about the best thing you can eat. It warms you from the inside. It’s lighter than a beef stew too. Originating in Germany, Hasenpfeffer is a traditional stew made with wine and or vinegar. Mine isn’t quit traditional but try it out. You will not be disappointed.
**Yes there is two instances of vegetable stock in there, I thought it would be easier to show it twice than tell you to divide it.
All in all, I didn’t expect to take this little time to make a full stew for a meal, but clocking in at only 2 hours including prep time, I am quite impressed. The flavour is so good. Not overly seasoned, not bland either. I may marinate the potatoes in garlic and salt, but I think that would make the whole thing a little too salty. It’s funny, the rabbit looks like chicken in the stew. I guess you could fib about it if you have someone who is picky. But I doubt you will have to. This is really good food.

Such Spicy Garlic
The Super Garlicky Thai Chicken was tangy and spicy with all the garlic you could ever want to consume. I served it with leftover potatoes and loads of green veggies, but over rice would be superb.View Details

Glazed carrots and roasted potatoes were both always on the menu when it came to any major family holiday meal.

Today I am going to share with you a new take on the classic Roasted Carrots, and tell you the secret (as per my mother’s mother) to the perfect Roasted Potato.View Details
