Rabbit Stew with Mushrooms and Sour Cream

Rabbit Stew with Mushrooms and Sour Cream

Rabbit meat is considered to be lean and overall healthy meat option. We were cooking rabbits pretty often at home in Ukraine. But here in US I was never lucky enough to see one in store.

This seem had changed recently: both, Whole Foods and Giant Eagle Market District in area where we live, now started carrying young rabbits (I hope it isn’t some kind of trial).

So I couldn’t resist, bought one and decided to share this simple and yet pretty tasty recipe for rabbit stew with mushrooms and sour cream. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Meat Stew with Beans

Meat Stew with Beans

If you are looking for quick recipe with meat – try meat stew with beans.

It is pretty quick and is not too complicated to do: cooking time will depend on the meat cut you use, but in average it is between 30 and 45 mins.

I used beef (chuck roast cut) for this one, but pork will work for this recipe as well.

Spaghetti Squash with Chicken and Mushrooms

Fall is a perfect time to cook some squash. Spaghetti squash.

This recipe features spaghetti squash stewed with chicken and mushrooms in sour cream sauce. Prepared like this, this dish doesn’t require a side.

Stewed spaghetti squash will work great for dunner or lunch. Leftovers can be easily reheated in microwave.

Meat Stew with Beer, Mushrooms and Vegetables

Meat Stew with Beer, Mushrooms and Vegetables

Meat stewed with mushrooms and vegetables in beer. It works good for dinner, left overs can be reheated for lunch. Boiled potato side dishes will go good with such meat.

I used beef for this recipe, but it will work good with either pork or beef. Tomato paste or canned tomatoes can be used instead of fresh tomatoes.

Amount of beer to use for this recipe will depend on the size of the pot you use, it should be enough to cover meat completely while cooking.

Duck Stew with Prunes

Duck Stew with Prunes

As I mentioned before, I love duck meat dishes. And, as it looks to me, not many people cook ducks in this part of the globe.

So here is my contribution to promote that kind of meat: a recipe for duck stew with prunes. The recipe calls for whole young duckling, but duck breasts or/and legs can be used instead.

Cast-iron cooking pot is the best for this kind of stew if you have one.

Chicken Stew with Cauliflower and Tomatoes

Chicken Stew with Cauliflower and Tomatoes

This is another recipe from “Modern homemade cuisine” book which I mastered. This dish goes great for dinner and leftovers can be warmed up for lunch.

Chicken is served with cauliflower so there is no need to cook separate side dish unless you want to.

Important note: when cooking chicken with sauce make sure it simmers slow, because sauce has flour and it will burn on high heat.

Veal Stew with Chanterelles and Peas

Veal Stew with Chanterelles and Peas

Chanterelles are mushrooms which I simply can’t pass in the shop, even though they are seasonal or maybe because of that.

It is my shame, but I don’t know any way to prepare them other than this stew with veal and peas, but it sure tastes great!

You can substitute beef for veal, just increase cooking time to ensure meat is soft enough. You can also substitute white dry wine for water, if you feel like this.
