Haids15 4y agoI substituted Chinese cooking wine for the sherry. The tastes were beautiful! Although I will cook it less next time as I thought it could be a bit juicier.
Anniegreg 4y agoBeautiful. Had this with egg fried rice and stir fry veg. Yummy. Smoked the kitchen out a bit tho.
porkyosh 4y agoI loved this recipe...I made it for Christmas :)
Finnhouse 5y agoNot bad. Recipe worked according to plan. Definitely an Asian feel to the end result.
Jabre 6y agoThe meat was juicy, absolutely perfect! I made a smaller piece (one pound) and adjusted the quantities for 2, it worked fine. And with a simple salad & homemade vinaigrette, just great. Thanks!
rubicat 7y agoI substituted port for the sherry.... this turned out wonderfully, and the duck was very moist! Next time I'll start at 450 to render the fat and then come down to 350 for cooking for an hour or so. I prefer duck NOT well-done, but even this recipe (well done) left the duck moist and yummy!
