On Saturday, I told Jimmy that I would cook dinner for his family. We went to the grocery store and I asked him what he wanted. He said he wanted something wild. We walked past the butcher and Jimmy spotted a rabbit. He told me that he wanted rabbit stew. So I created my own rabbit stew recipe!
The meat from one rabbit
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups water
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped
1 bay leaf
1 medium onion, sliced
1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped rosemary
2 teaspoons paprika
5 large carrots, sliced
5 ribs celery, chopped
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1. Brown the meat in the oil. Add water, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, bay leaf, onion, salt and pepper, rosemary, and paprika. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes. Remove bay leaf.
2. Add carrots and celery. Cover and simmer for another 30 minutes. Combine 1/4 cup of water and cornstarch until smooth. Add some of the hot liquid into the corn starch mixture. Add cornstarch mixture to to pot and cook until bubbly. Enjoy!
The verdict? It was delicious and I think rabbit tastes a lot like chicken, only sweeter and lighter–if that makes sense?! I’d definitely make it again!
