Duck Stewed with Potato and Eggplants

I love duck meat. And other day we were lucky to find a couple of duck breasts in Market District opened recently near by (nice store by the way).

So, I got them, also eggplant and some potatoes, and cooked this nice dinner.

Any duck meat will work just fine for this stew, I was just lazy to remove bones.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: I used boneless duck breasts, but any other boneless duck meat will work the same good (just assume than breast meat takes longer to cook):

  2. Slice eggplant into pieces about ¾ inch thick, generously rub salt from both sides of each piece, put them all in the bowl and set aside for 15-20 mins:

  3. Dice duck into equal size pieces (the smaller pieces are the less time they require to cook):

  4. Warm up deep frying pan with a bit of oil and add all duck meat:

  7. Peel and dice potatoes, add them to the frying pan (that is why you really needed a deep pan) and fry potatoes with duck together stirring from time to time:

    Now it is time to add eggplants, however my frying pan wasn’t nearly as big as my eyes wanted it to be, so I moved all content from the frying pan to the bigger (and cast-iron) pot and put it over moderate low heat (but if you have big enough frying pan to hold all ingredients you can continue with it).
  10. So, slice eggplant pieces:

  11. Add them to the cooking pot, add 1/2 cup of water and salt to taste:

This is very tasty! I’ve never ate duck before. Its meat is delicious. And combination of duck, potato and eggplants seems perfect 🙂 Oh, and garlic of course.
