Chop the half duck into 3 big pieces ( wing, breast and leg)

Blanch the duck meat in the boiling water for 2 minutes, then wash with running water.

Add 1 tbsp oil to a cooking pan; add ginger, dried tangerine peel, dried pepper, star anise, and Chinese prickly ash to it and sautéed until fragrant.

Add the rest of ingredients and cooking until boil.

Add the duck to the sauce and bring the whole thing to boil, and then turn the heat to low.

Simmer the duck in the sauce for 45 minutes.

The left over sauce is really good for rice and noodles. You can also save it for next time. If you don’t not going to use it any time soon, keep it in the freezer.

Spice pouch for beef stew is something really good for braise, I always have some at home just in case I want to cook something. Even though it says for beef, it can be used for any kind of meat. If you don’t have it you can still make this dish, but with it the meat just tastes better.

鸭子半只 (约3磅)

水2 杯半

生抽½杯

蚝油2汤匙

料酒2汤匙

冰糖1/3 杯

姜3片

陈皮2小片

牛肉卤包香料袋1袋

干红辣椒1小条

八角茴香3个

花椒10粒

五香粉½ 茶勺

 

把半只鸭切成3大块 (翅膀、鸭胸和腿)

将鸭肉在沸水中焯水2分钟, 然后用水冲洗干净。

将1汤匙油加到炒锅中; 加入姜、陈皮、干辣椒、八角和花椒, 炒至香气出来。

加入其余的水和配料煮到开。

把鸭子加到调味汁里, 把它煮开后把火调小。

在调味汁中小火煨鸭子大约45分钟。

 

煮好后剩下的酱汁不要浪费, 可以拌饭, 拌面吃都很好吃。 也可以装起来等下次再卤东西的时候用。 酱汁会越来越浓越来越好吃的。 如果不知道什么时候会用到放冻箱里保存。

牛肉卤包可以用来煮任何的肉, 你也可以不用。 个人觉的用了味道更好。
