Best way to cook rabbit on Stove?
« on: January 29, 2009, 09:40:00 AM »
Hi guys
I'm going hunting tomorrow (a bit unprepared i know) and i was just wondering what you guys think is the best way to cook rabbit on a two-burner camp stove?
We can't have a campfire, with the hot weather, so will have to stick to pots and pans and the stove.

Thanks,
Carl

Par boil until done, remove from pot and then season with a seasoning and/or breading of your choice and fry.   :wavey:

Cast iron skillet with lid. Dredge in flour, salt and pepper to taste. 1/4" of oil preheated in pan place larger pieces to outside of pan usually hotter there. Cook until golden brown and crispy, reduce heat, place 1/4 cup of water in skillet cover and let steam until water evaporates. Will make rabbit more tender. Use remaining pan drippings for gravy.

Dust rabbit pieces in flour, salt and pepper and brown in Dutch oven in 1/4-1/2 cup oil. Add 1 cup each of diced celery and carrots and continue to brown along with rabbit pieces. Add chopped garlic 2-4 cloves and brown for 2-3 more minutes. Add 2-4 bay leaves and 1/2-1 teaspoon dry thyme. Deglaze pot with 1-2 cups red wine and add 1 can chicken broth and water if necessary to almost cover rabbit. Add 2-4 tablespoons of tomato paste. Reseason with salt and pepper. Add chopped fresh or reconstituted dried mushrooms. Simmer for 30-60 more minutes.

Given what I am hearing about wildfires down there maybe you have to worry more about getting cooked yourselves!!  All the recipes above sound good - I often simply brown them in some oil with salt and pepper and garlic salt then add some water and par-boil until tender, allow the water to cook off and brown a bit more (add some worstershire sauce if you like) and EAT!

Dredge in seasoned flour and brown in a hot heavy skillet and then put in roaster and then into oven on 325-350 for a couple of hours until done and tender.
