So, eating rabbit isn't new to me, but raising them and processing them ourselves is relatively new. Have always had pets rabbits. Anyway, our first weaners are ready to harvest we processed them and had them a few ways now. One grilled outside over a low fire, greased metal tray and spices on rabbit, with salt, and now in the oven, low heat basically the same way. The meat has been rather chewy, what am I doing wrong. Previously when cooking rabbit I usually boiled them and took the meat off to make meat pies or cooked in a soup/stew. Is rabbit able to be cooked like chicken or do I need to use a more "wet" style of cooking? Parboiled first and then baked? What am I doing wrong. these are young rabbits. Trying to get my husband to like rabbit, this isn't helping.
