Szechuan Braised Rabbit with Tofu and Peanuts

For Chinese New Year, I wanted to prepare a rabbit dish to ring in the Year of the Rabbit.  I have never cooked rabbit before, but rabbit meat can typically be prepared in the same manner as chicken.  The tastes are actually fairly similar with rabbit being slightly leaner.  I first started enjoying rabbit at … Continue reading
