Simple Baked Rabbit in the Oven

Simple Baked Rabbit in the Oven

Out of the “game” meats that I’ve tried, this “Simple Baked Rabbit in the Oven” is probably the least gamey of them…it has a very mild flavor. If cooked to the proper temperature (not overcooked to become dry), rabbit is a very moist and tender dinner option! The following recipe is just the basics ~ I wanted something easy, but in the future I would like to try a honey mustard glaze or a quick BBQ sauce to slather on before cooking.

Ingredients

  • • 3 pound rabbit, gutted and cleaned
  • • 1-2 tablespoons of avocado oil (or preferred oil)
  • • sea salt and ground pepper
  • • 1 tangerine, clementine, or mandarine orange (quartered)
  • • 1 small apple, quartered
  • • 1 medium onion, cut into chunks
  • • 4-6 cloves of garlic
  • • 1/4 cup of water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Drizzle the oil over rabbit, inside and out. Give the meat a little rubdown. Season with salt and pepper, inside and out.
  3. Set rabbit in a shallow baking dish. Stuff the cavity with the tangerine and apple quarters. Scatter onion and garlic around the rabbit. Pour the water in the dish. Create a "steaming tent" with aluminum foil over the dish sealing around the edges.
  4. Bake 25 minutes. Turn the rabbit, baste, and re-cover. Cook for an additional 25 minutes.
  5. Remove foil and continue to bake uncovered until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F (about another 15-20 minutes). Let rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Enjoy!
