When cooking rabbit this tried-and-true Fried Rabbit With Grapefruit Juice Recipe makes for an excellent meal.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Season-All (we were unable to find this in MOTHER's area, so we did without)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon thyme (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3- to 4-pound rabbit, cut into pieces
the juice of 1 grapefruit
1/2 cup cooking oil (or enough to measure 1/4 inch in bottom of pan)
1 medium onion, chopped
Combine the flour with the seasonings. Dip each piece of rabbit in the grapefruit juice, then roll it in the flour mixture until the meat is thoroughly coated. Pour the oil and chopped onion into a deep, heavy pot and heat over a high flame. Place the floured rabbit in the pot and brown each chunk on first one side and then the other. Lower the flame, stir together the remaining grapefruit juice and flour mixture, and add them to the pot. Cover and let everything simmer together until the meat is tender, turning the rabbit pieces from time to time to keep them from sticking.
