Any good rabbit recipes?

me and a friend took his kids out age 10 and 11 and we shot a rabbit skinned and cleaned it then cooked it over a fire grabbed to sticks that made a ' Y ' and a long stick that was straight off a tree so it didn't burn or catch fire threw some garlic in the chest cavity and came out nice took 40 mins to cook. The kids thought it was gross and didn't eat it so we cooked them snags. Thing is hopefully when they have kids they will tell there kids how they went hunting, it's ashame that kids are to involved in there computer games and facebook and don't get to go out and hunt and camp like I did as a kid but as they get older they might wanna come out. We tryed to cook a bugarra wich is a large lizard but it turned out horrable.

So to get to the point if you have any other ideas how to cook rabbits what spices and herbs to use would be great

Re: Any good rabbit recipes?

In the Southeastern United States the favorite way to cook a rabbit,squirrel,quail or nearly anything is fried.
Fried rabbit and gravy:
Cut the rabbit into serving sized pieces and soak it in buttermilk overnight or at least 8 hours.
Take the peices out of the buttermilk and coat them in all puropse flour seasoned with 1 teaspoon of salt and a generous amount of black pepper. ( I like about a tablespoon per 2 cups of flour.) A tablespoon of paprika can also be added but is not necessary
Put enough peanut oil in a black cast iron skillet to cover the pieces half way and heat it to 325- 350 degrees Fahrenheit. (peanut oil cooks at a higher temperature without burning or smoking excessively vegetable oil or shortening may also be used) Or plug in a fry daddy or other deep fryer with the apropriate amount of oil. Fry the rabbit for about 6-9 minutes per side until done. or about 6-7 minutes in the deep fryer.
This part is kinda tricky but I'll also post a way to cheat:
lightly Brown the remaining flour while stirring in about 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet on medium high heat. When it starts to brown add about 1 1/2 cups of milk and stir constantly while it comes to a boil. When it thickens remove it from the heat and add the pieces of rabbit return it to the stove on low heat and cover the skillet. Let it simmer for about 30 minutes.
(Here's the cheat) Milk gravy can take a while to master especially if someone whos made it fro years is not standing right next to you so here's an alternative.
Over medium heat pour one can of cream of mushroom soup into a skillet add 1/2 can of milk and stir until smooth add pepper to taste. add the fried rabbit and simmer for 1/2-1hour over low heat.

Serve this with buttermilk biscuits and other southern staples such as greens or yams MMMM

Re: Any good rabbit recipes?

I just used Barrett81's rabbit recipe on a ground hog using seasoned flour instead of plain flour. This was simply awesome when paired with some collard greens and cheese grits. Try it!

Re: Any good rabbit recipes?

G'day Aussie,

I remember my Dad taking me out the back of Avoca (VIC) when I was four onwards, shooting bunnies with the Bnro.

Grandma used to cook a lovely stew with them, The meat was very silky, I think she sprinkled baking soda over the meat and then soaked them in water for about 5 mins.
The rest was the usual winter vegetables and some chicken stock in a pot, oven till the veges are tender.

Im up in Darwin now. (polar opposite of Avoca), not a lot of bunnies to be found, not a lot of rimfires either up here. Lots of pigs though! I just cant wait to take my little boy out bush when hes old enough, bag a magpie goose, and cook it over the coals, yummy!
