This is my recipe for rabbit stew its also a good recipe for venison or any red meat.
(this recipe using 1 rabbit serves 2-4 depending on how much veg you use)

Rabbit: Clean and gut your rabbit not forgetting to remove the scent glands by the hind legs.
Chop up the rabbit to your size preference these 2 were chopped up small usually I just quarter into four plus the middle or you can totally de-bone the rabbit if you prefer no bones. I leave the rib cage hole to prevent little bones coming lose in the stew.

I purge the meat in a bucket of cold water with some ice packs for 24 hours before cooking or freezing this brings the blood out of the meat, colour of the purged meat after 24 hours: (notice the colour difference from the pic above)

Fry off the meat in a generous amount of palm oil with, half tea spoon turmeric, quarter tea spoon cumin, fresh chopped garlic, onions, 1 x any colour pepper and ginger to seal off the meat. Fry for 10-15 minutes or until the meat has browned off.

Then add 2 table spoons of tomato puree, 1 stock cube (¼ of a tea spoon dried chiilis or chilli oil/paste if you want your stew to have a little kick), a splash of worcester or soy sauce, 1 tin of chopped tomatoes, some chopped parsley and tyme 1-2 large classes of red wine (I prefer Merlot) mix this all together and simmer on low heat for 45 mins.

Then add your chopped veg and some stock around 1/3 to 1/2 litre. (for sock use either stock cubes, gravy granules mixed with water, or the new stock pots, which work best for me.

Veg: I usually use the following veg: chopped potatoes with skin on, green/runner beans, carrots, mushrooms and or any other veg you have.

If you want to add some dumplings do so at this point.

Now simmer all for around 60 minutes or until the meat is falling off the bone and the veg is soft.

Serve with chilled beer and hot crusty bread round the camp fire. :D

I have a large fire stand but might be easier to do such a big pot on the gas stove?
