The bunny the tried to run away….. By Marquetta N. Mickey

24 09 2008

The common question has been asked over and over again… how many chickens can cross the road…Well I’m asking you how many rabbits can cross the road before I pull over and kill, clean and cook that bad boy.

In my house rabbit is a nice part of our diet…I mean it would since my grandmother from the south. One of my favorite dishes of hers is smothered rabbit with onions and mushroom and I decided to share it with you guys. this dish is good for a family of 4. The prep time is about 15 min and it’s real easy to make.

8 pieces of rabbit thighs and legs cleaned
Salt and pepper (black or white)
1 big onion cut thinly
8 mushrooms cut in quarters
2 tablespoon of flour
2 cups of water
2 tablespoons of  olive oil
Extra flour to dredge rabbit
  • In pan add olive oil and put under high heat
  • Season rabbit with salt and pepper liberally and dredge in flour.
  • When pan is hot add rabbit to pan cook until slightly brown.
  • Take rabbit out add rest of flour and make a light brown roux.
  • Add water to pan and rabbit and bring pan to boil.
  • Turn heat on low and add onions and mushrooms.
  • Season if needed.
  • Turn off heat when rabbit is tender and sauce is to gravy consistency.
Can accompany rabbit with anything. We usually have rice and corn. but it’s also good with mash potatoes.
