PostSubject: The Best EVER Hare Stew & Herb Dumplings Recipe   Tue Nov 25, 2008 7:45 pm

This recipe EASILY feeds 5 HUNGRY Adults and the Veg usually costs me no more that £4

Ingredients:

1 Large Hare
3 or 4 Large Carrots, Chunkily sliced
3 or 4 Large Garlic Cloves, Crushed
3 or 4 Large Parsnips, Chunkily diced
2 Large Onions, Finely sliced
1 Large Potato or Sweet Potato (Optional), Chunkily diced
Half a Swede, Chunkily diced
1 to 1.5 Ltr or Beef Stock (OXO is Fine)
Black Pepper, Freshly ground
Sea Salt, Freshly ground
1 Handfull of Cooking Salt (For Meat Prep)
Dried Mixed Herbs (Fresh are better)
Packet Dumpling Mix (Or make your own)
1/3 Bottle of a Full Bodied Red Wine
Cooking Oil
Butter (Optional)
Worcester Sauce (Optional But Tasty)
Hendersons Relish (Essential if your a Yorkshireman Smile )

Method:

Clean and Quarter the Hare the same way as with a Rabbit (See Video Link) and soak in a clean washing-up bowl full of fresh water, with a hand full of cheap cooking salt over night, then rinse in fresh water before butchering. This will remove the blood and most of the strong Gamey taste with it.

Remove all meat form the bones and cut in to a chunky dice, alternatively cook on the bone.

Heat a large frying pan and add Oil, a large nob of butter and crushed garlic.

As the Garlic starts to colour slightly add the diced Hare meat and season with plenty of Salt and pepper.

As the meat juces start to fill the pan and the meat begins to colour add a GOOD Pinch of the Dried Mixed Herb and the 1/3 of a bottle of Full Bodied Red Wine.

Simmer for 5 Minutes to allow the alcohol to evaporate and to bring all the flavours together.

Place all the diced and sliced Veg in to the Slow Cooker or a very large Pan with a lid.

Pour the Hare meat over the Veg along with the reduced Red Wine and add the Beef Stock untill the stock almost covers the Meat and Veg mix. Add a good glug of both the Worcester Sauce and The Hendersons Relish and stirr.

Place on the lid and SLOW Simmer for 3 Hours stirring occasionaly and checking for taste after 2 Hrs. Season with more Hendersons Relish and Worcester Sauce and Salt and Pepper to taste.

At the 3 Hour mark add a GOOD pinch of Dried Mixed Herbs and a GOOD few grinds of Salt & Pepper to the packet Dumpling Mix then make according to the packet instructions.

Add the dumpling to the Stew and cover with the lid for a further 20 to 30 Mins untill Dumplings are light and fluffy.

Serve and Enjoy !
