A rich and nutritious slow cooker rabbit recipe that the whole family will love.
Layer all the ingredients into the slow cooker.
Switch on to low and cook for 8-10 hours, or switch to high and cook for 4-6 hours.
When cooking time is up, remove the rabbit joints with a slotted spoon and place into a bowl. They will be so tender they'll be falling apart so work carefully and quickly.
Pour the gravy into a saucepan and bring to a rapid boil. Boil until it is reduced by half.
Meanwhile, if you wish to remove the meat from the bones, wait until it has cooled enough to handle. This is a fiddly and time consuming job as the bones are so small, but worthwhile if you are serving to guests, those who don't like bones or children.
If you keep the meat on the bones, keep the rabbit warm.
When the sauce has thickened into a rich gravy, pour over the shredded rabbit meat or joints and serve. This dish is perfect served with roast root veg and green beans.
