How to cook rabbit legs

Rabbit legs are the most exercised part of a rabbit and, as a result, the meat can be tough if cooked incorrectly. To ensure a moist, tender result on these lean cuts of meat, rabbit legs are often braised slowly in liquid. You can then serve the legs as they are, or flake the meat off of the bone for use in a variety of dishes.

Method

1
Put the garlic halves, mushrooms, celery, onion quarters and time in a saucepan and cover with the chicken stock and white wine
2
Place the pan over a medium heat and bring to the boil
3
Leave the liquid to cool slightly before adding the rabbit legs and covering with a cartouche
4
Leave the liquid to cool slightly before adding the rabbit legs and covering with a cartouche
5
Leave to cool in the liquid before flaking the meat from the bones – this can then be used for pies, terrines, rillettes and salads

Variations

Matthew Tomkinson picks off the meat after braising to stuff cannelloni tubes in his recipe. You can use this meat to make a rabbit ragu to serve with pasta or add it to pies as Galton Blackiston does in his raised game pie.
