Recipe August 29: Greek Style Rabbit

Posted: Updated:

 

BRAISED RABBIT

Servings:4 to 6 servings

Ingredients:

• 2 small rabbits, skinned and cut into pieces

• vegetable oil, for cooking, for seasoning

• 1/4 cup bacon, chopped

• 1 onion, sliced

• 3 cloves garlic, chopped

• 2 cups chicken stock, low sodium

• 2 cups white wine

• 1/2 cup Dijon mustard

• 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

• 4- 5 sprigs rosemary, chopped

Directions:

1. In a large heavy bottomed pot, add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan.

Season rabbit pieces with salt and pepper and brown in batches. Reserving on

paper towel lined tray.

2. Deglaze the pan with a splash of the white wine. Reduce the heat to low and

add the bacon pieces. Cook over medium-low heat to render out the fat and let

the pieces get lightly browned. Remove the bacon and add the onion. Cook

stirring occasionally until the onions are translucent and soft.

3. In a separate bowl whisk together the remaining wine, chicken stock and

dijon.

4. Add the garlic to the pot and cook stirring constantly so as not to burn for 2

minutes.

5. Add the browned rabbit pieces and bacon back to the pot. Cover with the

wine, stock and Dijon mixture. Add the rosemary and bring to a simmer.

6. Cover the pot tightly with a lid. Simmer for 45 minutes to an hour or until the

rabbit is tender.

7. Remove the lid and check the consistency of the liquid. You want it thick

enough to coat the back of a spoon. If it still too thin, remove the rabbit pieces

and turn the heat to high to reduce the sauce more.

8. Finish by adding the butter and adjusting the seasoning with salt and pepper
