Crock Pot Duck Breast Recipe



Crock Pot Duck Breast


“Duck Peloquin” is a recipe I created to get the perfect sweet and savory combination for one of my favorite foods, duck. So many other recipes of mine require much more time to make. But this crock pot duck recipe takes about 15 minutes to prepare and cooks for 2.5 hours in the crock pot.

The end result is a versatile meal that can be plated or served as a stew.


The duck breasts can be replaced with other cuts of duck.


What makes the flavor of this recipe unique is the inclusion of molasses, dark beer such as Köstrizer, and liquid smoke. The use of green onion gives the dish a similar delicate flavor and texture as an Argentinian matambre de cerdo al verdeo, but using duck instead of pork.


“DUCK PELOQUIN”

  • SERVING SIZE: 2 servings
  • PREPARATION TIME: 15 minutes
  • COOKING TIME: 2-2.5 hours in Slow Cooker


INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 large duck breasts
  • 4 medium carrots (julienned)
  • 4 green onions (cup into 1/2 inch pieces)
  • 2 medium Fuji apples (cut into 1/2 inch slices)
  • 3 cloves cut garlic 
  • 2/3 cup dark beer (Köstritzer)
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt (for searing duck breasts)
  • 1 tbsp molasses 
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh black pepper
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 2 tablespoons butter


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Peel and julienne the carrots, cut green onions and peel and slice the apples.
  2. Place all ingredients except the duck breasts and seasoned salt in the bottom of the crock pot and set to high.
  3. Cover crock pot and cook vegetables for 1 hour
  4. Add seasoned salt to both sides of the duck breasts.
  5. In a hot buttered cast iron skillet, quickly brown both sides of the duck breasts on high in butter or oil.
  6. Place the ducks on top in the crock pot.
  7. Cover the crock pot.
  8. Cook for 30 minutes and then baste the duck breasts with the crock pot liquid.
  9. Cook on high for a total of 2-2.5 hours (with the duck for 0.75-1 hour of the total) until the fruit and vegetables are cooked through but no so tender that they disintegrate.
  10. For non-breast meat, include the boned duck meat in step 2.

  • Remove duck breasts and slice into 1/2 inch strips.
  • Plate is the duck on top of green onions and apples.
