Duck Fajitas

Postby mays123 » Thu Oct 25, 2012 2:21 pm

Duck Fajitas
1 lb of duck breast cut into strips
1 large yellow onion, peeled and sliced with the grain, not against the grain as one would normally slice an onion. Slice first in half, and then slice off sections a half inch wide at widest point.
2 large bell peppers, stemmed, seeded, de-ribbed, sliced lengthwise into half-inch wide strips

Juice of 1 lime
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 fresh JalapeƱo pepper, seeded, ribs removed, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, including stems

1 Mix all marinade ingredients. Set the Duck in the marinade and let it sit at least an hour, the longer the better.

2 Heat to high heat a large cast iron pan or griddle. Add a teaspoon of olive oil to the pan. Add the steak, frying on each side for 3 minutes, or to desired doneness. 3 minutes per side will yield approximately medium rare doneness for an average cut of flank steak. If pan starts to smoke too much, reduce the heat to medium high. We want the steak browned, not burned. Remove from pan and let sit for 5 minutes.

3 Reduce the pan heat to medium high. Add a little more oil to the pan if necessary. Add the onions, bell peppers. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes, until the onions are slightly translucent.

4 Slice the duck against the grain into thin slices. If you slice the meat at a slanted angle, you will be able to get your slices pretty thin.

5 Serve immediately with shredded cheese, salsa, shredded iceberg lettuce, sour cream, guacamole and warm flour tortillas. (Hint for warming tortillas - put in microwave over a paper towel for 20 seconds on high heat.)

Anyone ever make Fajitas in the crock pot? I think I'm going to try and do it
Cut duck breast in thin slices
add duck, peppers and onions in crock
add just enough water to keep it moist.. maybe enough to cover half way up on the meat
then add the fajita seasoning pack and turn on low unit tender enough to shred. I guess this would be almost like carnies but with duck.
