Easy and Delicious Rabbit Recipes



Ever tried rabbit meat? Thought so, many of the people I know have never had rabbit meat and have no interest in even trying it for different reasons. Rabbit meat is known to be white, fine grained and with mild flavor. It is very nutritious because it is known for the high protein levels. It also tastes very good. Since it’s a small animal, it’s pretty easy to butcher at the comfort of your home hence increasing family’s ability to consume fresh meat within their reach. I would personally recommend rabbit meat to each and every one of you for the countless benefits that come with it.

Study shows that rabbit meat has the following benefits:
 A very high protein content, more than beef and poultry. 33g protein.
 It is very low in fat, the leanest actually. 100 g/3.5 oz. contains 3.5% fat.
 A rabbit is very low in calories, making it a very good choice for people who are trying to lose weight, 173calories per 100g.
 Highly concentrated in iron.
 Very low cholesterol levels.
 Rich in minerals.
 Contains less sodium than beef and the rest.

There are different methods of preparing rabbit meat. I am going to sample out a few methods that were going to be discussing today.
They include;
1. Rabbit stew.
2. Pot roasted rabbit.
3. Stuffed rabbit.
4. Delicious BBQ grilled and marinated rabbit.
5. Crispy Deep fried rabbit.
6. Rabbit curry

If you are a fan of meat in a wine sauce, then you’ll probably want to give this recipe a chance. It has a lot of different ingredients, but they are all natural so they should be pretty easy to locate. However, if you aren’t a fan of red wine, you could possibly substitute regular grape juice and see if you like the taste any better.

 1 rabbit.
 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.
 2 large onions.
 11/3 cups of water.
 Two medium carrots.
 1 large red bell pepper.
 11/4 cup beer(pills)
 125grams cup pureed tomatoes.
 3-4bay leaves.
 Fine sea salt and pepper.

1. Cut the rabbit into 5 or 6 smaller pieces
2. Heat 2 table spoons of oil in the oven or on a heavy bottomed pot and fry the rabbit on both sides until golden brown. Then remove from the pan.
3. Cut the onions into halves and slice the halves thinly. Pour the remaining oil in the pot and fry the onions on low-medium heat, stirring often for about 20minutes. Add some water from time to time to prevent it from drying out or burning.
4. As that boils, dice the carrots and the red bell pepper. Add the vegetables to the onions and continue cooking, and stirring in between for about 5minutes. Add the sweet and smoked paprika powder and stir well for one minute.
5. Press the rabbit pieces back in the pot, add the beer, pureed tomatoes, and enough water to barely cover the rabbit. And add the bay leaves, the juniper berries, some salt, and pepper.
6. Cover the pot, bring it to boil and gently simmer for about 11/2 hour or until the meat is really tender, it should basically fall of the bone for you to know it fully ready.
7. Add salt and pepper for a great taste and serve while hot with mashed potatoes and pickles or anything of your choice.

Smashed herbs on any grill adds a certain flavor on the meat, especially the rabbit meat we’re about to look into. I’ve written this recipe to be cooked on the barbecue, because the flavor will be amazing.

1 cup of BBQ sauce
Assorted veggies for grilling
1rabbit, preferably wild, jointed
1 handful fresh thyme and rosemary, leaves picked
4 cloves garlic, peeled.
Olive oil
1 lemon, zest and juice of
1 teaspoon honey
4 thick slices higher-welfare pancetta
Fresh ground black pepper

1. Heat the BBQ to medium heat. While heating, cut the rabbit’s rib cage then press down flat.
2. Put your rabbit on a surface, Using a pestle and mortar, or a liquidizer, bash or whiz up the thyme and rosemary leaves to a pulp, then add the garlic cloves and bash or whiz again. Stir in 8 tablespoons of olive oil, the lemon zest and juice and the honey, and pour this over the rabbit.
Now I’m going to talk about flavor. Get a couple of sprigs of fresh thyme and tie them together like a little brush. Each time you turn the meat, dab it with a little of the marinade to give you a lovely encrusted layer of flavor. This rabbit is going to be really tasty!
3. Keeping the marinade to one side, preferably the inside part. Remove the pieces of meat and season with salt and pepper.
4. Lay your rabbit on the grill, marinade side down. Turn the heat down and cover. Set your timer for 15-20 minutes. Make sure you turn the meat over every so often. Look after it by controlling the temperature and basting it continuously with the marinade.
5. After 15-20 minutes, coat the other side of the rabbit with half the remaining sauce. Then add tender grilling veggies like zucchini and pepper.
6. Cover the grill and cook for other 20 minutes until the juices run clear and thigh reads 160 degrees.
7. Let the ribs rest out of hit for 10minutes.
8. Chop, and serve.

You can serve the rabbit with any white beans, or roast potatoes, or grilled vegetables, or different salads – it really depends on how you feel and what the weather’s like. Just put a big bowl of your chosen accompaniment in the middle of the table and serve all the meat on a board. Lovely with a glass of white wine. Simple, honest and bloody good recipe.
