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 a extra cup of chicken broth. I used some homemade blue berry 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!
