Rabbit with garlic, grandma’s recipe


  • 1 whole rabbit (1.5 or 2 kg and cut into pieces)
  • 10 cloves of garlic, or one head of garlic directly
  • 200 ml of white wine
  • 150 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 sprigs of thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 3 bay leaves


  • First season the rabbit with salt and pepper to your liking, and let it rest.
  • On the other hand, peel the garlic cloves.
  • In a frying pan, pour the extra virgin olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add the garlic cloves, lower the heat and let them toast and release all their flavor. In total, about 5 minutes and then set aside.
  • In the same frying pan, add a little more oil and add the pieces of rabbit, turn and turn, until they brown.
  • At that moment, add the wine and let it cook until the alcohol evaporates. After about 5 minutes, as soon as a kind of sauce has formed, add the garlic cloves and the aromatic herbs.
  • Cover and cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes.
  • Halfway through cooking, you can turn the pieces of meat so that they are cooked on both sides.
  • The ideal garnish for the rabbit with garlic are some potatoes, either “a lo pobre”, “panadera” or fried.
