ingredients

directions

  • Remove excess fat from duck or duck legs.
  • Season with salt and pepper, and put in a skillet that will fit it comfortably; turn heat to medium, and cover.
  • Check once you hear sizzling: duck should be simmering in its own fat and exuding liquid.
  • Adjust heat to create a steady simmer.
  • Once bottom browns, turn.
  • Eventually liquid will evaporate and duck will cook in fat only; at this point, lower heat and continue to cook duck, turning once in a while, until it becomes tender, about an hour.
  • Transfer duck to a plate.
  • Pour off all but a couple of tablespoons of fat.
  • Turn heat to medium high, and add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until it softens, about 5 minutes.
  • Add ginger, garlic and chilies and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
  • Add beans and sugar and turn heat to high; cook, stirring occasionally, until beans begin to brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Add 2 tablespoons water and nam pla or soy sauce.
  • Put duck on top of bean mixture and bring to a simmer.
  • Cover and cook until both beans and duck are very tender, 15 to 30 more minutes, adding a little more water if necessary to keep mixture moist.
  • (You can prepare dish in advance up to this point; cover and set aside until ready to eat, then reheat.) Uncover and stir in lime juice; taste and adjust seasoning, then sprinkle with cilantro and serve.

    I served 3 boys (11, 12,and 13) this for dinner and only had a 1/2 breast left. I did cut the duck into pieces so they could manage it better and used the green beans I had canned from the garden. This was wonderful. I didn't have any cilantro but it would have added some needed color to the dish.
