Rabbit Stew

So I tried something new in cooking.. Rabbit stew.  It's something I've been interested in and I make a decent stew (not that it takes all that much skill.  The C-in-C butchered one yesterday and I did a little recipe hunting and ingredient shopping. 

Layered 1.5 lb of potatoes followed by about 1lb of carrots in the slow cooker.  Light seasoning of salt/pepper/garlic salt between each layer.

The rabbit I quartered the legs and de-boned the torso.  It ended up being about 2 lbs of meat.  The remainder and offal went to the dogs.  Waste not want not.

A layer of canned mushrooms and half an onion cut in 1/8th pieces. 

 Cooked on 'high' in the pot for about 3 hrs then on 'low' for about 4 hrs.  The meat was falling off the bone.

 On the plate:

The entire family (sans one) enjoyed it and cleared their plates.  A few minor tweaks for next time (more seasoning primarily) will make it even better.

Most good rabbit recipes start with "fry half-a-pound of bacon."

Nothing beats coming home at the end of the day and smelling that slow cooker, and looking in and seeing that after-shot!
