2 roast ducks....what to do....
So on a day trip to NYC, among other delicacies, I brought home 2 chinese roast ducks from Corner 28 in Flushing. I usually just pick off the meat and make an amazing stir fry and use the bones for stock. Anyone have any other ideas? can I freeze the meat?
Freezing the meat is certainly better than forgetting about it and having to throw it out.
Save the bones for stock/congee
I prefer more simple dishes...just as if they served them in Chinatown @ lunch on a plate or bowl. Roast Duck atop rice with some vegetables like Snow Pea Pods, Gai Lan, Mustard Greens, Bitter Melon or Napa Cabbage.....or atop a bowl of Noodle Soup
definitely save the bones for stock or broth. i had 2 ducks' worth of bones in the freezer. bought about 10 duck heads and a package of chicken feet. along with some ginger, garlic and hot peppers this all just made amazing bone broth!
for the meat, you could make an asian-inspired hash or stuff spring rolls or wonton skins with some duck shreds, cabbage, scallions and julienned carrots. these can be made in big batches and frozen too.
Makes a good sandwich - mix with a little hoisin and top with sliced cucumber and spring onions.
