Hunters Rabbit Stew Recipe

If you like beef stew and you have rabbit meat available give this Hunters Rabbit Stew Recipe a try; it’s delicious. It is cooked slowly on the stove top, and because of the nature of stew recipes, you can cook the rabbit as long as needed to make it tender.

This makes this a great recipe for either wild or domestic rabbit meat. There is wine in the recipe, if you are not comfortable with that, omit the wine and add an extra cup of chicken broth.

I used some homemade blueberry wine I had on hand, and it was a great combination, any type of red wine should work fine. Treat yourself and give this on a try-it’s really good!
