Braised Duck with Onion

Top Review by A la Carte

I thought this was delish! The flavor was excellent, and the "melted" onions were great!!! I also only used 2 cups of water. At the end, I put the duck under the broiler to crisp up the skin a bit and it did the trick. (We made this with cauliflower & cheese which seemed to go well with it.)
