  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 (3 pound) dressed rabbit, cut up

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup

  • 1 (8 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 ½ cups baby carrots

  • 6 potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4 inch chunks


  1. Combine flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl, and set aside. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Coat each piece of rabbit with the seasoned flour mixture, and cook in the hot oil for 3 to 5 minutes per side, until the rabbit pieces are golden brown. Remove the rabbit from the skillet and set aside.

  2. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  3. Mix together the mushroom soup, mushrooms, garlic, Italian seasoning, and water in a saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat.

  4. Place the browned rabbit pieces in a large roasting pan or Dutch oven with a lid, and cover the rabbit with the carrots and potatoes. Pour the mushroom sauce over the rabbit, carrots, and potatoes, cover, and bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours, until the rabbit and vegetables are tender and the sauce is bubbling.
