Rabbit Stew ;-)

I have a very good friend who's looking for a rabbit stew recipe.
She's from the UK, so I'm not sure about her taste...

Any suggestion ?

Re: Rabbit Stew ;-)

a) Treat it like boeuf bourguignon.

b) Saute the pieces, with or without flour (with, if you want a thicker sauce, without if you are glutin intolerant). Add herbs, tomatoes, black olives, garlic, whatever you like, and some stock. Cook long and slow.

c) For both a and b, serve with Polenta Taragna.

Anyway, I like long and slow, so that it's falling off the bones (of which there are many, but this is for pieces on the bone).

If doing boneless fillets, then a quick sear is what works (similar to chicken breast).

Tom

P.S. As I can't add a new post, I must say that our rabbit was 4+ kg, and successfully fought off the several marders who killed the other two (OK, they were 1.5kg lightweights). Needed two weeks of antibiotics afterwards, though.

Re: Rabbit Stew ;-)

I've got a friend in Yulin who knows some good recipes.

They're not actually for rabbit, but I'm sure they could be adapted...

Re: Rabbit Stew ;-)

I'd ask your local breeders club, they usually name themselves "Kaninchenzüchterverein" or "Kleintierzüchterverein". For instance (just a random pick) those in Hochdorf.

Re: Rabbit Stew ;-)

I know of several around Lugano.

One will even prep them, the other is DIY.

The people in Lugano, are they just Guys you know or for example they are a hunting club or a cuisine club? I'm trying to find a lead to point to my search in the right direction. Thanks for the input.

People who raise meat rabbits on a small scale.

Not wild, but not industrially raised.

She could do a classic lapin à la moutarde. I swear by this Diana Henry version...

I managed to get some in the large Migros in Lowenstrasse, Zurich, so it might be worth trying your local branch? It wasn't that easy to find, but the very nice man on the fresh meat counter pointed me in the direction of the correct fridge. It wasn't that expensive, either, IIRC. Unlike Globus food hall where I paid a king's ransom for it

Re: Rabbit Stew ;-)

Migros, Coop, Denner, Aldi all sell it around here, as well as pretty much any butcher.
