    My standby is the slow cooker - you can't go wrong, even with an older rabbit, and slow cooking for 6+ hours results in fall-off-the-bone tender meat. You can just put the rabbit in, salt and pepper it, pour either a bottle of beer (Belgians work very well) or cream of mushroom soup (other cream soups would work, too) over it, add chopped carrots/celery/potatoes if you like, and let it go low and slow.

    Alternately, just let the rabbit cook in a little water, salt, and pepper, and you can make "pulled rabbit"...add BBQ sauce and have it as a sandwich; chop and add mayo, onion, and celery, and you can make a rabbit salad sandwich. You just use it like you would chicken.

    My favorite is called Smothered Rabbit. You take the rabbit and cut it in pieces, flour it, and brown it in a little bit of olive oil. When it's nicely browned pour a can of cream of mushroom soup over it, cover the pan and simmer for about an hour (depending: age of rabbit, size of pieces etc. etc.).

    ARBA used to sell a really nice rabbit cook book. I've got it around here somewhere... I got some good ideas out of it. I no longer have rabbits so have not thought about it for a long time!

    Just made fried rabbit using the back meat. Turned out just like chicken tenders. The kids loved it.

    One thing we used to enjoy when we raised meat rabbits was curry. We'd put the rabbit meat in a slow cooker with onions, peppers and lots of curry powder and let it all simmer, then add some tomato wedges around the last 30 minutes of cooking. Served over rice, wow, was that good!

    I think you can use rabbit for anything you usually use chicken for. We also tried a jerk recipe once and the flavor was good but we liked the curry better.

    I liked your way of using cream of mushroom soup sounded good too. We don't raise rabbits now, but maybe someday we will again and I'll remember how you did that.

    @N F C , I made rabbit curry and it was delicious! Thanks again for the tip about subbing rabbit for chicken.

    I just made a pot of mulligatawny stew with a rabbit I had to process unexpectedly (a 10 week old). Hot mulligatawny stew on rice...it really works for this time of year.
