Creamy Rabbit Stew

Creamy Rabbit Stew

Our Creamy Rabbit Stew, despite being prepared using rabbit meat, can be easily adapted for other meats such as chicken or turkey. The end result is a delectably rich and tasty sauce, paired with optional potatoes for added heartiness.

The dish can traditionally be prepared in a cauldron, but for modern cooks, a multicooker serves as a fantastic alternative. Regardless of your chosen device or its brand, you'll find this dish comes out perfectly every time.
