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
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Parsley


Step 1:
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.

Step 2:
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.

Step 3:
Cut the rabbit and season to taste, brown over medium heat in a pan with a little olive oil 4 cloves garlic, peeled.

Step 4:
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.

Step 5:
Remove the rabbit from heat and separate the broth rabbit, both must be booked separately.

Step 6:
Then you need to chop the onion, carrot and 2 cloves of garlic to sauté in a pan with a little olive oil.

Step 7:
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.

Step 8:
Stop sauce. Remove herbs (pass through a sieve). Mix with a little flour diluted in water to give more character.

Step 9:
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:
