Teochew-Style Spiced Duck Rice

This was my 1st time to braise a duck, and I did not cook the Hokkian way which my mum use to cook, instead I tried Teochew-style, I prefer the Teochew style than the Hokkian style. So I just cooked this duck and prepared some mixed local salads, this was a simple dinner in a lazy Sunday.


- I think I have bought a wrong type of duck (they called as white duck), it can not stand for long hour cooking, broken down when I cut it....


My daughter and hubby said this was a best duck rice they have ever had..so you can imagine how nice this duck rice, hehehe..
Simple recipe to share:-
1 duck, about 2kg
Spices:-
-1 stick cinnamon
-5 stick of "gan cao"
-3 pcs of dried tangerine peel
-5 pcs of star anise
-4 pcs of cloves
-some peppercorns
5-6 slices of galangal (nan jiang or lengkuas) ** This must have, remember...
Five spice powder
Enough water to cover whole duck
Seasoning:-
Chinese wine
Light soy sauce
Dark soy sauce (for colour)
salt
White sugar
Rock sugar
Steps:-
1. Boil water in a wok and add few slices of galangal, lower the duck into the hot water to wash it briefly, remove duck to a colander to drain. Rub five spice powder on whole body of duck and set aside.
2. Heat oil in a wok, add white sugar and rock sugar to melt them until it caramelises. Add in galangal slices, bring enough water in the wok.
3. Place all the spices in a cotton pouch, and put this cotton pouch in the wok, once the water boiled, add in the duck. Add in seasoning and simmer for about 2 hours, turning the duck every 30mins.
4. Turn off the fire and leave the duck to immerse in the sauce for another hour.
5. To serve, cut the duck into pieces and garnish with Chinese parsley and local salad (marinate carrot, white carrot and cucumer with salt, sugar and vinegar). Serve with white rice and garlic chili sauce (bottled garlic chili sauce, chopped garlic, fish sauce, vinegar and sugar)
Do enjoy Cooking !!!

Yumzz..i always love teochew duck especially the gravy that goes so well with rice. Oh yea...was told there are two types of duck. Last time i bought the wrong one (which is supposed for braising) to roast.

Sonia said...

HS Kitchen and Hobbt, Thank you.

Nancy,I never cook duck before, this was my 1st time too, actually I learnt it from a cook book, and this duck no 鸭骚味, you should try it, since you have a big family, then it will be nice to have one duck in one meal, mine still got balance to keep it the next day.

yiyimummy, me too, seldom eat duck, can't finish the whole duck for a small family like me.

LCOM, thanks.

Icook4fun, ya, similar to Hokkien Loh Ark but Teochew style must have Nam Jiang, it taste very difference after add this, yummy..

The duck meat looks so tender. My husband will love this A LOT. I've just only begun to eat a little bit of duck recently. I do feel a bit guilty as the reason I don't eat duck growing up was because I had 2 ducks as pets when I was little & my whole fmly loved our pets to bits. :D

Sonia said...

维雄, really, this was not an easy task..

nyonya pendek melaka, actually the meat was not tendered, too soft, because I bought a wrong type of duck, first time mah, no experience..the taste was just perfect..if this way, better dont eat duck since you have nice memory on your pets, hehehe..
