Rated as 4.52 out of 5 Stars

"Dawn Bryant of North Platte, Nebraska writes, 'My husband and I do a lot of hunting and eat more wild game that domestic meat. I came up with this recipe for wild rabbit, and the meat cooks up tender and tangy with a fresh light sauce. I like to serve it with baked potatoes and steamed broccoli.'"
