    how many bits does one chop rabbit into  -  04 Aug 2008


    Excellent. Simple and quick but very tasty. Type of mustard not specified, so I used whole grain French which worked well. Highly recommended.  -  13 Jan 2013


    Very good and easy to prepare. We also used 1 sliced onion instead of 4 small ones and omitted the orange juice. We'll be making it again.  -  14 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
