Duck Stew – BBQ Duck Recipes – Wild Duck Breast Recipe

Duck Recipe

It's tough to beat any medium rare duck recipes and duck stew.

Here are some of our favorite duck recipes in a series of recipes coming monthly from members.

This duck stew recipe was easy and quite good. I’m a fan of the slow cookers that I don’t have to babysite as much.

Makes about 6 servings – if you’re in a duck camp with a lot of duck breasts, you can easily double the amount of meat.

Cooking Steps

Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large covered pot over medium-high heat (ranges will vary, it should be a slight boil). Add duck and sausage; cook about 7 minutes or until browned. Remove duck and sausage from pot. Add vegetables and garlic; sauté for aobut 7 minutes. I like it so they’re cooked but still a bit firm. Return the duck mixture to pan. Add beans, tomatoes, and the broth; bring to a boil.

Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or keep it on low until the hunters come home.

Duck Stew Ingredients

2 teaspoons oil (oil choice is up to you, I learned to use canola)
1 pound boneless duck breast halves, skinned and cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 pound smoked sausage, sliced (if you don’t have this, add more duck)
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrot
1 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 cup chicken broth
2 (16-ounce) cans beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained

BBQ Duck Recipe

I am a huge crock pot fan, again because it’s quick and easy and good! You can use as much duck breasts as you want, I usually assume about 2 breasts per person, and it shrinks a bit. So I’ll let you do the math depending on the servings.

The key is prepping the duck. I like to cut my duck breasts across the grain, in about 1/4-1/2″ strips. I let them soak in milk or water for as long as possible. If they’re going from the cutting board to the crock pot, at least put it in water for the next step. When it’s done I drain and add water, over and over again, while pressing on the breasts to push out as much blood as possible. The more you get out the more it will take on the bbq and less game taste. And finally, I like to put the strips on a paper towel bed to soak up all remaining blood and water, so it goes into the crock pot almost dry.

From there cover with your favorite bbq sauce, and turn on the crock pot to low. That’s really about it! I let mine go for about 4-6 hours, and it really helps if you can stir it every hour. The thicker the bbq sauce the better as it will thin.

To serve, simply stick on a bun and add any cheese, mustard, or more bbq sauce. Or you may have something better laying around…either way you can’t go wrong with this simple BBQ Duck Recipe.

    This duck stew was excellent. Don’t hesitate to try it. It is a great dish if you have to feed a large number of people.

    I am attempting the duck stew recipe and it says 2-16oz cans of beans. What kind of beans goes best with this recipe? Also, would this be good over a bed of white rice?

    Came across this great recipe a few hours I had shot a few mallards. I used some smoked moose sausage and the fresh duck breasts. The only thing I changed was to add baby potatoes instead of beans. Then made a basic roux to thicken it up, added a few bay leaves and I was good to go. Could believe how great it turned out. Thanks for posting this great recipe!
