Braised Roasted Duck

What do you normally do with your left over roasted duck be it homemade or store bought???

So far I've done a Roasted Duck and Baby Tomatoes Angel Hair Pasta.

My mom gave me one half of a frozen roasted duck which I didn't want to reheat in the oven. So mom told me to braise it with preserved soy beans (min see). What I did was chop up the duck into smaller pieces. Minced a large handful of shallots and a few cloves of garlic, set aside separately.

In some hot oil, saute and sweat the shallots till fragrant before adding garlic. Continue to saute before putting in the minced preserved soy beans. Stir till fragrant before adding the duck pieces. Mix well. Pour in water till it's just enough to cover the duck. Let it come to a simmer and adjust the taste with some sugar, salt is only necessary if it's really not salty enough. Braise for about 20 minutes or until gravy thickens.

Best with hot rice especially when drizzle the gravy over the rice!
