Re: Hare...

HI wine~o!
I love hare, in fact I love game in general, really. We have a really nice recipe for it and since its still cold out there (and here...) I think a stew is just what you need to do big_smile

Its very frequent here to marinade game for a day before actually cooking, by the way.
Get some onions, garlic, carrots, celery and fry them in olive oil.
Dust the hare with some flour and add to the veg. Fry for a couple of mins both sides of the meat bits. (Usually when cooking hare or rabbit I cook the legs and shanks before and then a while after add the loin as they have different cooking times) Add the marinade and some chicken stock. Simmer for a while. Add savoy cabbage cut in julienne and a can of baked beans  and thats pretty much it.
There are a few herbs you can use, thyme, mint, sage, bay or even rosemary, although if its a "real" hare you may not want to overuse herbs.

Enjoy thumbsup

Re: Hare...

They say hare meat really taste good but I haven't tried eating it. It would be very tasty to marinate it and then grill it. hmmm

Re: Hare...

Interesting thread! I saw the most magnificent-looking hares hanging in Borough Market this weekend, and as curious as I was I didn't want to buy one as I've never cooked one before. I'd imagine they'd make a pretty great stew though?

Re: Hare...

I remember seeing some hares there at Borough market when I was there on a visit a while ago , they were hanging and still had their fur on .
Thinking about buying one can be quite daunting if you have never skinned a rabbit before .

Re: Hare...

Won't they skin it for you? I've never seen hare before, but the big fishmonger at Glasgow Cross has rabbits hanging in the fur, and they skin and joint them for you at point of sale, no charge. Same for the pheasants. I would have thought any game retailer would be willing to do this, otherwise they'll miss out on a big sector of the market.

Re: Hare...

this will sound bad but skinnning a rabbit is actually very easy, it is like pulling a little sweater off.
