Roast Duck With Port-Garlic Sauce

Roast Duck With Port-Garlic Sauce created by dfwmustang66

A delicious duck recipe from the Upperline Restaurant in New Orleans, courtesy of Bon Appetit. I recommend making the sauce a day ahead, as I found that it takes a little longer to reduce than what is stated.

    We really enjoyed this roasted duck recipe. DH made it last night for him, myself, and one of my friends. We all loved it. We did not make the sauce ahead and had no difficulty reducing it. The duck was also good on its own with the pieces that I tried that I did not cover with sauce. I served with a side of mashed potatoes and green beans. I would definitely make this recipe again. Thanks!
