I tried this recipe for the first time when I was 10 years old, my grandfather Andon prepared it for us.  When I first tried it I was 10 years old boy. I liked it so much that I have licked my fingers, it was so delicious. For years after that I had not eaten rabbit. Pretty soon I was in the supermarket searching for frozen rabbit. I tried several versions until I found mine. Rabbit meat is very dry so the combination with a sauce helps a lot to make this meat so tasty.

The first step in making rabbit stew is catching the rabbit.
