Marinate sauce:

1/2 piece preserved tofu

1/2 tsp five spice powder

1/2 tsp ginger powder

1/2 tsp Chinese prickly ash powder

1/2 tsp salt

1tbsp hoisin sauce

1tbsp brown sugar

Rice flour 5g

Corn starch 5g

Baking soda 1g

1 egg white

Mix above 3 different ingredients separately.

Pour all the marinate sauce into duck’s cave and make sure use your hand to evenly spread inside the duck. Use a bamboo stick to seal the open.

Bring 2 quarts water to boil, then use a big spoon to pour the boiling water all over the duck for 30 seconds.

Rinse the duck with cold water for 30 seconds.

Bring the crispy water to boil then use a big spoon again to pour it all over the duck for another 30 seconds.

Hang the duck and let dry for 4 hours with a fan on ( it is winter now, so I hang it outside)

Brush the skin paste all over the duck and let dry then repeat it one more time.

Brush some oil all over the duck before you put it inside the preheat 380F oven.

Roast it with breast side up for 30 minutes then turn the duck and roast for another 30 minutes. Turn the duck one more time with breast up for another 20 to 30 minutes or until the thickest part of meat’s temperature reaches 165F.

Let the duck rest for 15 minutes before you cut it.

Roast Duck Buns/烤鸭夹包


I bought this roast duck from Costco the other day and it was surprisingly good. I didn’t expect prepackaged duck can be this delicious. It was so tender and juicy! The package was 2 half ducks, after I ate the first half with the orange sauce that comes with it, I didn’t feel like to eat the other half with the sauce again because the sauce was too sweet for me. So here is how I ate my other half: roast duck with steam buns. It was even better!!!

Heat up the duck and steam buns as directed on the packages, chop up some scallion and cilantro, get some hoisin sauce. And here you go: yummy delicious dish with only 15 minutes to prepare.







Beer Duck/啤酒鸭


Duck 2 pounds

White mushroom 150g

Taro 150g

Ginger 3 slices

Scallion 3 pieces

Garlic 2 cloves

Beer ½ pint

Water ½ pint

Rock sugar 4 pieces

Star anise 2 pieces

Chinese prickly ash 5 pieces

Light soy sauce 1tbsp

Dark soy sauce 1.5 tbsps.

Oyster sauce 1 tbsp.

Cut taro into small chunks, then wrap them with starch, deep fry or pan fry until lightly golden brown. Also cut the mushroom into chunks. (if you buy the small ones, just cut into halves)

Add 2tbsps. Oil the cooking pan, add ginger, white part of scallion and garlic stir fry until lightly golden brown, then add mushroom and continue to cook for 2 – 3 minutes.

Add duck meat and continue to stir fry until duck is also lightly golden brown about 4-5 minutes.

Add beer and water (just enough to cover the duck). Add the green part of scallion, star anise, Chinese prickly ash, both soy sauces and taro. When the liquor is boiling, reduce the heat to small and continue to simmer for about 20 minutes.

Turn the heat to high to thicken the sauce, add oyster sauce and rock sugar. When the sauce is thick, turn the heat off.






啤酒½ 品脱

水½ 品脱








将芋头切成小块, 然后用淀粉裹一下、油炸或煎成金黄色。也把蘑菇切成块。(如果你买小的蘑菇, 切成两半就好了)

加2汤匙油到锅里, 加入姜, 葱白和大蒜炒至淡金黄色, 然后加入蘑菇, 继续炒 2-3 分钟。

加入鸭肉继续炒, 直到鸭肉也成浅金黄色约4-5 分钟。

加入啤酒和水 (差不多可以淹到鸭子)。加入葱段, 八角, 花椒, 酱油和芋头。当汤煮开时, 将火调小, 继续煨约20分钟。

这时把火调高,  加入蚝油和冰糖。 当酱汁变稠时就可以关火了。
