    Something else. My whole family loved this recipe, We're on the low carb diet so I had to omit the orange, but it was great even without it! The only things I did different were to use a sliced onion instead of the whole onions. I also browned the onion and the rabbit pieces in the bacon drippings. I thickened the sauce with low carb thickener. Next time I might add a tablespoon or so of low carb orange marmalade to get that orange flavour. Great recipe!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. Very good and easy to prepare. We also used 1 sliced onion instead of 4 small ones and omitted the orange juice. We'll be making it again.  -  29 Sep 2008


    To be honest, i have never tried rabbit before, so i was not sure what to expect. It was tough and chewy and realy hard to eat. The sauce was ok but i did not like the amount of wine in it. I might make this with chicken again with maybe just a touch of wine.  -  29 Sep 2008
