Rabbit with Chocolate is one of those delicious recipes that can be prepared with wine, in this case red. It is a perfect recipe for overweight people because it is made from wholesome ingredients.
Originally from Ribargoza, it is like other recipes of Catalan cuisine. Rabbit with Chocolate is a delicious meal for four, perfect for families and a happy weekend. This dish goes well with a red wine from Priorat, for example:
- 1 rabbit
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 1 onion
- 2 carrots
- 6 cloves of garlic
- 40 grams of grated dark chocolate
- 1 glass of red wine with good acidity, as Luis Cañas Reserva 2010.
- Extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of corn flour refined
- 1 sprig of thyme
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 sprig of rosemary
Clean the potatoes and place in a baking tray, then add a little olive oil and put in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes.
Take the potatoes from the oven and let cool. Peel the skin off and then put them in the blender. Finally, add a pinch of salt and reserve your puree.
Cut the rabbit and season to taste, brown over medium heat in a pan with a little olive oil 4 cloves garlic, peeled.
When the chopped rabbit begins to take a gold color, pour a glass of red wine. Cover completely with water and cover and simmer for 35 minutes.
Remove the rabbit from heat and separate the broth rabbit, both must be booked separately.
Then you need to chop the onion, carrot and 2 cloves of garlic to sauté in a pan with a little olive oil.
Add to pan the thyme, rosemary and bay leaf and pour broth rabbit previously booked and cook for 10 minutes uncovered, until you have a strong flavor.
Stop sauce. Remove herbs (pass through a sieve). Mix with a little flour diluted in water to give more character.
Add rabbit and chocolate in a pan with the sauce, stirring constantly to dissolve the chocolate while avoiding the burn. Simmer for 5 minutes.
To serve your rabbit, pour chocolate on each plate and serve with mashed potatoes garnished with a little parsley.
To accompany this dish, we recommend a mineral wine, to refresh your palate between bites, or a powerful and fleshy wine that is unfazed by the power of chocolate. Here are our recommendations:
