cook method: stovetop
3 pounds whole rabbit, fresh or frozen
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 cups red wine
2 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon allspice
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon thyme
12 pickled cocktail onions, unsliced
12 stuffed olives, sliced
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
Cut rabbit into serving pieces and rub with salt and pepper. Put into a large bowl; add marinade. Refrigerate overnight.
Drain rabbit; do not pat dry. Strain reserve marinade.
In a large cast iron fry pan over high heat, quickly brown all sides of rabbit pieces in hot canola (or vegetable) oil. When brown, pour in the reserve marinade and simmer over low heat for 1 hour or until tender.
Just before the rabbit is done, saute the onions, olives, and mushrooms in butter. Add to rabbit mixture. Serve with boiled potatoes.
