Rabbit Stew

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 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!

Would you try rabbit stew?

  1. I’ve never had rabbit and won’t be trying it, but it’s really cool how adventurous you guys were to see it and just make it on a whim when you’ve never cooked it or had it before. Plus I love the pic of you guys cooking.

  2. Rabbit is definitely not something that my supermarket would ever sell, which I guess is kind of strange since I live in New England. But the wildest we get in the supermarket is bison meat! LOL! I’d probably try rabbit someday, if I had the chance, because as much as I adore animals, I don’t think they’re just for pets. (As in I do love me a good cheeseburger now and again). 😉 But I don’t think I’d be brave enough to try cooking it. Ha, ha.

  3. I love that picture of you two in the kichen! For whatever reason I thought you were a vegetarian. But either way, rabbit looks like it would be pretty good!
