Maltese Rabbit Stew

This is a delicious recipe which is very popular in Malta.

1 Rabbit sectioned
2 medium carrots diced
1 medium onion diced
1 large glass of good red wine
1 large can of whole tomatoes in juice
some water
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp rabbit seasoning
1/2 tsp dried mint
1 gravy stock cube
2 Bay Leaves
1 medium can peas
corn flour to thicken the gravy

First lightly fry the rabbit until it is brown all over. Meanwhile fry the carrots and onion together in a large pan. When the onion is ready toss in the rabbit, wine, tomatoes, add water until rabbit is covered, curry, rabbit seasoning, mint, stock cube and bay leaves. Stir everything together and bring to boil, then simmer for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. When the rabbit is ready blend some cornflour with cold water and stir it in until you have a nice thick gravy. Add the peas and stir.

The best thing in this recipe is to cook some spaghetti and serve it with a little bit of the rabbit gravy as a starter. In that way you will cook the starter and main course in one go, apart from being a very deliciouse recipe. Enjoy :-)

Belgian Family Recipe
The recipe is as follows:
Ingredients list:
rabbit meat (skinned and cleaned: 2.5 ~ 3.5 pounds)
1 onion (chopped)
salt & pepper
1 bottle of brown/dark beer (12 oz.) such as Samuel Adams Brown Ale
3.5 oz. butter
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 teaspoon of maizena (corn starch)
1/2 cup of water

Cooking instructions:
The meat
Let the butter melt in a dutch oven or a stock pot on high. Once the butter is brown, turn the heat to medium. Add the meat. Once the meat is brown on both sides, take it out and put it on a plate. Now add the chopped onion, saute it and top it off with some salt & pepper. Add the beer. Mix well. Put the meat plus the gravy on plate back in the dutch oven or stock pot. Put the lid on but make sure the lid does not fully cover the dutch oven or stock pot (keep an opening of about 1 inch). The meat should not get steamed! Let the meat simmer for about 1 hour on low to medium. Check regularly to make sure there is enough gravy left, if not, add some water. Take the lid off and add 2 tablespoons of sugar. Stir well. And voila, the meat is ready. Time to finish off the sauce.

The sauce
Mix 1/2 a cup of water and 1 teaspoon of maizena corn starch together. Take out the meat and put it on a plate. Turn up the heat to medium to high and add the mixture of water/maizena to the gravy. While you add the mixture, stir well and shake the dutch oven or stock pot a little for about 30 seconds. Remove dutch oven or stock pot from the stove. The sauce is ready. Pour the sauce over the meat. Serve immediately. Bon appetit!

When sufficient tracks are collected, fry gently till golden brown. If clover is left in pan, the meal is already garnished.
