 Ingredients List

  • 1 Rabbit or hare, cleaned &
  • Skinned
  • 2 Celery stalks, with leaves,
  • Chopped
  • 2 md Onions; chopped
  • 1 Carrot; sliced
  • 1/2 c Chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 Bay leaf; crumbled
  • 2 Sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 6 Peppercorns; bruised
  • 2 c Dry red wine
  • 1/2 c Vinegar
  • 1/4 c Butter
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 8 oz Tomato sauce
  • 3 Allspice berries


After washing the rabbit or hare thoroughly & cutting into serving
pieces, place in a large glass or earthenware bowl. Make a marinade
by combining the celery, onions, carrots, herbs, peppercorns, wine, &
vinegar & pouring over the meat. Cover & refrigerate for a day or
two, turning the pieces over occasionally. On serving day, drain,
reserving the marinade, & wipe dry. Transfer the marinade to a
casserole & simmer for 15 minutes. While the marinade is cooking,
heat the butter in a large frying pan, & when very hot sear the meat
over high heat until it is reddened in color without browning. Remove
from the heat, & with a spatula lift the rabbit or hare pieces into
the simmering marinade, then pour in the remaining butter. Taste for
seasoning, then add the salt & pepper, tomatoes, & allspice. Weight
the meat with a small plate to keep it under the sauce, then bake it
in a very slow oven (225 F) for 2-1/2 hours, or until the meat is
tender & the sauce thickened.
