Braised Duck With Ginger


650g duck drumsticks (3) - cut into big chunks
75g ginger slices
20g chopped garlic
1 tbsp fermented soy beans
5g rock sugar (4 small cubes)
1 tbsp Chinese cooking wine
1/2 tbsp dark soy
3 tbsp light soy
1 tbsp oil
3/4 tbsp sesame oil
black pepper
1 tbsp corn flour + 1 tbsp water - for thickening

  • Marinate duck pieces with 1 tbsp soy sauce and a dash of black pepper.
  • Heat cooking oil and sesame oil in a saucepan and sauté ginger slices until fragrant, then add in chopped garlic.  Sauté until fragrant and put in fermented soy beans.  
  • Put in marinated duck and fry until brown.  Add dark and light soy sauces, rock sugar and black pepper.  Pour in enough water to cover the duck. Stir well and cover.  
  • Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer until duck is tender.  (It took 50 minutes cooked in my AMC pot).
  • Thickened the sauce with corn flour mixture.  Stir well and add in coriander leaves.
  • Serve hot with rice.


  1. Hi Veronica! I am not exactly a duck fan but this I will eat!

  2. I like to cook duck this way too, must have big plate of rice, hehehe..Yours look absolutely delicious too!

  3. So saucy and delicious! I would love to taste them.

  4. What a delicious looking dish. My mom used to cook duck with lots of ginger slices minus the fermented soy bean.

  5. Hi Veronica, long time no see. I like duck [breast and drumsticks] dishes but seldom cook it cos' we have to buy the whole duck here. Maybe I have to think of several recipes to cook the different parts. Looks yummy with the thick gravy, nice over rice.

    1. Hi Kimmy I was away for two months in Msia. This is the first dish I cooked since I got back. I don't like to buy the whole duck so drumstick it is.

  6. Hi Veronica,
    I would have extra steam rice to go with your wonderful duck dish. My mil use to cook 卤鸭. With your new recipe I will have another choice to cook duck. YUM!!

  7. Veronica I can tell that I would love this based on the sauce ingredients! :D

  8. I love this dish but i have never tried making it myself :)

  9. Sounds divine! I'm trying to imagine how it tastes and I'm just salivating at the thought of it!
