Have not had Rabbit for many years, found a local breeder and he sold me one. Cut the sugar in half and next time will cut the black pepper in half. We will be eating more rabbit.

I was looking for a slow roasted method for cooking rabbit, not a simmering / basting method. The title is misleading.

Flavor of the sauce was great. The cook time needs some adjusting yet as the smaller cuts were over-cooked.

My family really enjoyed this! I was a bit apprehensive at first becoase of the sugar, but I only used 1/2 of the amount asked for, and a little less of the ketchup as well. It almost tasted like bbq sauce, I did everything else the same as it asked for in the recipe, very easy, the rabbit by the end is nicely roasted and crispy!! It was delicious, I served it with rice. Will make again.

I deboned the rabbit into small bite size pcs first. Everybody loved it! They thought it was pork ribblets. They were surprised when I told them it was rabbit and they asked for the recipe! The only thing was maybe cut back on the paprika? My wife thinks half.

Its recipes like these that make me think...where did I go wrong? I'm sorry, I've never given anyone a two star rating before, I actually feel bad about this, but fair is fair. I followed the recipe to the T, and ended up having to cook the rabbit fact I cooked him till I burned him. Perhaps this way my fault, but that is the first time I threw away dinner. Will definitely not be making this again. :(
