Braised Duck Leg

1. Wash two duck legs in water. Then wipe them with kitchen towel.

2. Heat a pot on stove. Sear the duck leg till brownish, because duck contains much fat.

3. Add in 2 tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon light soy sauce and 2 tsp dark soy sauce. Stir fry to let duck leg be coated with dark sauce.

5. Pour in enough hot water covers duck. Add in ginger slices, and star anise. Bring to boil. Then turn to low heat. Cover with lid and simmer for 1 hour.

6. Remove the lid. Turn to high heat to reduce the sauce.

Serve hot with white sesame and chopped spring onion.

Roasted Duck Leg

1. Clean duck leg. Then pour hot boiling water all over it. Let the duck leg be air dried.

2. In a small bowl, add in 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp vinegar and 1 tsp water. Mix well.

3. When the duck leg’s skin completely dried, brush sauce over it. Wait till dried and brush again. Repeat brushing 2 times.

4. Preheat oven to 200 degree C. When the duck leg was put into the oven. Turn to 170 degree C. Roast for 40 mins.

Let the roasted duck leg cool. Then cut into slices, which I’m not good at.

Serve with the sauce you like. I chose sweet Thai chili sauce.
