I'm Palestinian and my mother would cook this for special guests. A very exotic twist to cooking rabbit with sage, olives, artichokes and served alongside rosemary potatoes.

  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Cook rabbit pieces, turning once, until brown on both sides, about 10 minutes. Add the remaining onion, olives, sage, and marjoram and cook for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

  • Stir artichokes, tomato paste and parsley into skillet with rabbit. Replace cover and simmer until artichokes are tender, about 15 minutes. Serve with rosemary potatoes.

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:) Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

This is absolutely delicious! Our rabbit did not produce enough juice to simmer for as long as the recipe recommends (our rabbit was very lean) so I added a little bit of water to it. Everything else followed to the letter. Very good my husband loved it and so did my one year old. Will definitely be making this again! Read More

It was great. My boyfriend and I aren't a huge fan of olives and artichoke so we changed it up a bit. We used blue potatoes purple onions like the recipe calls for but didn't add olives and used tomatoes instead of artichokes. We didn't have the same amount of rabbit but cut what we had and I simmered the bones in with the meat to get everything off. It had a great taste! Read More

tasty! I too used bottled spices came out really nice. I added a dash of lemon which did add a nice tang at the end. Highly recommend this dish if you want something that's not rabbit stew! Read More
