    we didn't have fresh anything, so I used botled spices, the potatoes were really nice, but for the rabbit, I'd been slow cooking it in water all morning when I looked for a recipe so I tossed it in the spice and tomato paste after I'd shredded it from the bones. Good recipe, will make it according to the recipe next time. I'll be prepared! thanks for sharing  -  23 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was pretty good but the searing cooked the onions and the olives to fast they ended up burning so I had to omit them from the final dish. Some lemon juice would have been perfect for a little tang. Will use this recipie again.  -  27 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was fabulous! I had 2 pans going, 1 with the rabbit and another with 4 chicken thighs. I used about 1/2 cup of chopped green olives as 1 Tbls didn't seem near enough to me. There really wasn't anything to simmer the rabbit & thighs in, so I added some sherry to each of the pans, and it added a lovely flavor. Definitely needs some type of liquid here. I also used a can of artichoke hearts in place of fresh baby artichokes. The potatoes were great as well. We thoroughly enjoyed this dinner, and will make it again.  -  04 Mar 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
