Roast Duck Buns/烤鸭夹包

IMG_5036

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.

Rock sugar 4 pieces

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.
