Rabbit And White Wine Stew

admin's picture
  Plain flour 3 Tablespoon
  Rabbit portions 2 Kilogram, cut in large pieces
  Olive oil 4 Tablespoon
  Onions 2 , chopped
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), finely chopped
  White wine vinegar 2 Tablespoon
  Light brown sugar 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Dry white wine 300 Milliliter
  Chicken stock 1 Liter
  Peeled plum tomatoes 400 Gram
  Bay leaves 4
  Taggiasca olives 12
  Oregano sprigs 2

Sprinkle the flour on a plate.
Season generously; roll the rabbit1 pieces in the flour to coat lightly.
Heat the olive oil in a large casserole set over a medium heat.
Brown the rabbit all over, being careful not to overcrowd the pan, or the pieces will stew rather than fry - do it in stages if necessary.
Set aside on a plate.
Add the onion and garlic and fry for 5 minutes, stirring, until softened.
Increase the heat, add the vinegar, sugar and wine and reduce by half.
Then add the stock, tomatoes and bay leaves; reduce the heat and return the rabbit pieces and any juices.
Simmer very gently, partially covered, for 2 hours 30 minutes until the meat is very tender.
Top it up with a little boiling water or stock if it begins to look dry.
Add the olives and oregano and simmer for 10 minutes more.
Adjust the seasoning to taste.
