Posted on

This is one of my all time favourite duck recipe … Braised Duck with Ginger & Reddish Cheese …. a Chinese recipe and normally would be served up with rice but here, we dined the Western-style … just the braised duck with some Stir-Fried Soya Bean Sprouts as the main for our dinner 😉

some of the ingredients …. from top right clockwise … fresh ginger, dried chillies, reddish cheese, salted/fermented bean paste ..what’s missing here is the star anise which I added later on!



1 whole duck (1kg), chopped into 8 – 10 pieces 

300g young ginger, sliced

2 Tbsp chopped garlic

1½pcs reddish cheese

3 Tbsp salted/fermented bean paste

3 star anise

2 – 3 dried chillies, optional

1 Tbsp Shaoxing wine

1,500ml water


  • Heat up 3 Tbsp oil in a pre-heated wok ….sauté ginger, chopped garlic, reddish cheese, dried chillies and salted/fermented bean paste until fragrant
  • Add in duck, star anise and Shaoxing wine …stir fry over low heat until aromatic
  • Pour in water, bring to a boil then braise the duck, covered, over low heat for approximately 1 hour or until the duck is tender  and sauce has thicken 
  • Dish out and serve hot with rice or dine the way we did … Western-style … just the duck with some Stir Fried Soya Bean Sprouts
