Rabbit in beer and his honey vegetables.

With the arrival of autumn and the bad days, I wanted to present you a cuddly recipe for myself. My grandpa made it to me when my spirits were low, when I was a child. It’s also a dish that I often make when I eat with my friends, in short I think now it’s time to share it with you! I hope you’ll like it.


  • 1.5 kg of rabbit legs
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 1 white beer (yeah, we cook everything with beer in Denmark!)
  • 2 onions
  • 1 L of vegetable broth (beef or chicken)
  • 8 medium sized potatoes
  • 2 parsnips
  • 3 carrots
  • Some crushed chestnuts (optional)
  • 100 g of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of mustard
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Heat oil and butter in a casserole dish. Brown the rabbit on all its sides.
  2. Add the mustard, salt, 3 crushed garlic cloves and onions, cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the beer and cover with the broth, add the pepper and cook for an hour.
  4. Meanwhile, chop the vegetables into mirepoix (in very small cubes).
  5. Brown them and brown them in the rest of the butter with a little oil for 5 min.
  6. Add the honey and garlic left over from the garlic press.
  7. Finally, stir up with the broth from the rabbit and cook for 20 min.

Enjoy your meal!
