Gunga's how to de-bone a rabbit

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
3 Pound rabbit , washed and dried




Flip onto it's stomach, and make your first two cuts doen the backbone and then down along the back rib cage






Flip it over, and then cut down along the front part of the rib cage








The two halves removed from the main carcass





Take each half, and detach the front and rear legs from the "saddle" or loin. which give you two loin parts, two front legs, and two back legs




To de-bone the rear legs, start from the foot and run your knife down the leg bone and the thigh bone on all sides






Break the hip joint, and remove the leg and thigh bone, then remove the pelvic bone. leaving a bonelss leg/thigh piece




When all done the result is these six boneless peices, two saddles, two rear legs/thighs, and two front legs/thighs

Very nice work there Mr. Gungs.   May I call you Mr. Gungs?

 

Question, isn't there some type of ligament inside those thigh bones that is a little tough to eat?  How do you de-ligamentize that critter without turning that beautiful carcase into paper mache?

Hello Mr. Gungs, we must be close to the same age as I remember watching the "Little Rascal's" when I was young. I'm black/Irish but not at all offended by the satire, Buck Wheat was my favorite, how about you?

Anyways is that rabbit store bought of did you hunt it? Down here in Philly you can't buy rabbit as far as I know but people do hunt them. In fact I never even saw it on any menu in any restaurant that I've been to. Curious as to what the taste and texture is similar to. 

 

Thank You in advance..............Burnie

I don't recall there being a ligament in the thighs but maybe one of the pro's can jump in. Nice step by step thanks for posting.

Thanks,

Gunga, 

 

Sorry to smack your hand (so to speak) but this music is not the right theme man! You really need to get Elmer Fudd's monologue going "I going to keel the wabbit, I going to keel the wabbit, I going to keel the wabbit, ...."

 

 

JK.

Never dumb-down your credentials. That 17 year old was probably hired cuz she was wikiwikiing the owner. Please. Don't ever be so hard on yourself.

@dutch, if you like Thai food.

 

Son-In-Law Eggs

Hard boil Eggs,  De-Shell THEN deep fry them to get a crispy outside. Cut in half and plate.

Sauce : Concentrated tamarind (1/4 cup) + palm sugar (1/2 cup) + fish sauce (couple tablespoons = to taste) Gently heat and adjust to taste. Add hot chili if you like. It should be the consistency of maple syrup.

Pour sauce over eggs then sprinkle crispy fried onion + garlic over the top. Garnish with coriander leaves and julienned red pepper.
