Rabbit is naturally a little tough. What I do is marinate it in Italian dressing for a day, then pressure cook it or boil it until it is fairly tender. Then grill it, and it'll be delicious.

Also, you can cook it in the crock pot with carrots, potatoes and onions for about 4 hours.

Another delicious recipe is to take the rabbit pieces and put them in the crock pot. On top of them put some tomato sauce and lotsl of spices. (oregeno, salt, pepper, red pepper, italian seasoning, etc.) then put a bunch of onions on top and cook for 4-5 hours.

Find a good Cacciatore recipe (Italian for catch of the day) and simmer it for a couple of hours.

I have a recipe that a neigbor gave me when I lived in Italy and I'll post it or email it to you if you like.

My neighbor puts it in the crockpot and cooks it all day. He swears it is awesome. I've personally never tried it but it sounds good.

My mother used to make rabbit and squirrel stew, as far as exactly how I am not sure, but it was delicous. More than likely just substituting rabbit or squirrel for beef or chicken in a stew recipe would work very well. I quit hunting rabbit due to lack of dogs and squirrel because I hate skinning the little boogers.

If it wern't for rabbit, I would have starved to death in college. I've eatin rabbit more ways than most people have eatin chili.

One of the best way's that I've had it was to parboil it until the meat is tender, remove and de-bone. Then take the chunks and dust w/flour and fry in hot grease. This makes the meat tender and seal's in the natural juices.

Other than that, just plain ol rabbit stew is pretty good. Just follow any stew recepie for beef and it works pretty good for bunnies.
