Default what is the best way to cook a rabbit?

I got a rabbit in the freezer and am curious what the best way to cook it will be.

Thanks for any help.

I LIKE TO MARINATE THEM IN ITALIAN DRESSING FOR 24 HRS THEN RUB SOME BUCK SEASONING ON THEM AND PUT THEM IN THE SLOW COOKER

I tried this recipe and it was very good:

Par boil the rabbits for about an hour. remove rabbit from water and save water and allow rabbit to cool. debone rabbit and flour the rabbit chunks as they are deboned. brown the floured rabbit chunks in butter and remove from the pan but leave the drippings in the pan. add about 2 1/2 cups of the parboil water with 3 tbls of flour with salt and pepper to the frying pan and cook until it starts to thicken. Add rabbit chunks back to the gravy as you are putting biscuits in the oven.

split the biscuits and lay out on a plate and spoon the rabbit chunks and gravy over the biscuits. This is the ONLY way I will prepare rabbits. They make the best gravy of any meat hands down.
The only thing I did differently was to fry the rabbit in bacon grease instead of butter.

Check out the "Camp Cooking" section of HuntingNet for more.

i think the beast way is to marinate it in wine then take it out and make a thick stew

Find a good hot-wings recipe and marinate the rabbit in that for a couple of hours. then grill 'em!

DO NOT....i repeat DO NOT boil them for an hour like someone else posted....like any other meat this will ruin the flavour and possibly make it tough.

it only takes 15 minutes or so to boil a whole rabbit until its done....

i have been cookin rabbit and squirrell (taste exactly the same) for 5 years now. i cook about 25-30 squirrells a year and about 12-14 rabbits a year. and trust me i have cooked them many different ways.

i usually cook them for family gathering and such and by far, the most popular way that everyone likes (about 20 ppl outta 23 or 24) is dip the cut up rabbit/squirrel in beaten eggs and then toss them in good ol shake n' bake u get from the store (or make your own mixture with bread crumbs) and deep fry...yes deep fry....in oil thats about 300 - 325 farenheit. put the largest pieces in first and then wait a few minutes and put the smaller pieces in. leave them in there cookin away...checking them every 2-3 minutes after the first 5 minutes. this is the best way i have found for having the most juiciest, best tasting rabbit and squirrel. u must not over cook or it'll be tough. take them out when 1 minute after the meat has turned brown all the way to the bone.

that was for fresh game or game thats not freezer burnt

now for freezer burnt game. its best to use this in stews, marinade and cook however, or the best yet, squirrell or rabbit burgers (these r awesome wen ground up with bacon) this takes alot of time to debone squirrels if u try to get all of the meat from the animal but its well worth it.

if ya got any questions just pm me or post here ill be glad to help ya out

I must say that I only boiled mine for about 15 - 20 minutes. I was just impatient. It's nice to hear I accidentally did a good thing there!
