Recipe's preparation


    Ok so I tried to make a roast rabbit in the varoma. Personally I think it turned out a bit dry but that was prob my fault as I cooked it for too long, so have shortened the cooking times with this recipe.

    Thoroughly wash a whole rabbit.

    Put approx. 1.5 litres of water in the bowl.

    Stuff the rabbit with stalks of celery, rosemary, half a lemon cut in half, and bacon pieces so it would all fit in the carcass.

    Tie with cooking twine to hold closed. If your rabbit is a bit long like mine was I bent in in a little bit so it would fit in the varoma.

  2. Make up a marinade, made out of equal parts soy sauce and tomato sauce and minced garlic, pour over the whole rabbit, making sure you turn it over to get both sides. Oh and also make sure your varoma dish is sitting on the bowl so the sauce doesnt go all over the bench!



  3. Place sliced apple and place it around the edge of the rabbit as well as a about a handful of bacon pieces.

    Set the varoma on speed 2. I cooked it for 30 minutes however as I said it was a bit dry so probably didn’t need cooking that long. So I would say about 20 mins.

  4. Once finished, transfer it into the Thermo serve while you make gravy.

    As I had a bit of extra water left I poured half of it into a bowl to use later for a stock. I then added enough cornflour (I started with approx. 2 tablespoons but added more to reach my desired thickness!) and put it on speed 4 until desired thickness was reached.

    Once my gravy was made, I took the meat off the rabbit, put that in a bowl, and added the stuffing (celery bacon apple) then poured over the gravy. That way it didn’t seem to taste as dry as there was gravy mixed through it! I served it with roast potatoes.

  • Rabbit is naturally a lean

    Rabbit is naturally a lean dry meat, cooked in a slow cooker may work better in the liquid.  Gin also will tenderise the meat.
