This time I’m sharing with you this tasty shredded duck breast in the plum sauce recipe. Meat can be used either for snacks, lunch boxes, hamburgers or just with salads – as you wish. This recipe was born accidentally – I knew that I need to make lunch, so I left the meat to cook for 3 hours 😀 When I was doing other jobs, the dish has been already done. I only needed to put some effort into making the sauce. If you don’t like plums, I recommend cooking this duck the same way but instead of serving with plum sauce, serve with hoisin or barbecue sauce – it will be astonishing! I only had duck breast, but for this recipe, I would recommend cooking a whole duck. You should cook for 4 hours, this way duck will be juicier.
Heat oven to 150°C and put grill grid in it.
Drain duck breast with the paper towel, add salt and pepper. cut the skin a few times, try not to cut the meat. Put duck breast into an oven, the skin has to be way down, on a grill grid. Cook for 2,5 hours, try to flip every 50 minutes.
While the meat is in an oven, prepare the sauce. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add minced onion and mix it on a medium heat for 5minutes. Pour ginger, garlic, and cook for a minute. Finally pour soy sauce, honey, rice wine, chili sauce and crushed plums. Heat the fire to maximum, when it's boiled, reduce heat. Stir for 15 - 20 minutes until the plums get soft. Grind the sauce with the hand blender and let it cool.
After 2,5 hours remove duck from oven, take a couple spoons of plum sauce and place it on duck, leave it to cook for 10 minutes until the duck caramelizes perfectly. Remove it from oven and leave to cool off for 10 minutes. Tear the meat with two forks.
Serve the dish with plum sauce while it's warm. Enjoy your Shredded duck breast in plum sauce!
