And that is eating duck. You guys been eating any? Let's see some duck eat pics... Cooked these mallard duck legs last night.



I seasoned with black pepper, garlic powder, and Lawry's season salt....







You want to sear good to get the caramelization, but you got to cook the hell out of duck legs to make them tender, so into the preasure cooker, add all the good stuff from the skellit..



Add some red wine (good red wine, I used Sterling cabernet), and some olive oil...



After about 10 minutes on pressure cooker, add sliced mushrooms (man do they cook down!)...





Add some more wine as needed, and I also add some Worcestershire, Heinz 57, and A1...



Cook duck legs till tender... Mallard breast on the skillet with some bacon....



Take off med rare, and ladle some of that duck leg mushroom sauce ontop, man you are in heaven...

How long do you leave the legs in the pressure cooker?

It will take at least 30 to 40 minutes. You need to check on it and make sure you are not ruining out of moisture, add water if need be, if you add too much water you can always cook it off. Hard to over cook it. I have done them before w/o the pressure cooker and takes forever to get them to go tender.

Seems like it would over cook them but clearly it does not. I've never even used a pressure cooker...is it like a double pot...with the first pot holding water and the second one the actual food?

A pressure cooker is simply a pot where the lid screws on, and there is a valve on the top that releases steam so it does not blow up. They are dangerous, and you never want to open one while steam is coming out the valve. I did that once many years ago, food all over the kitchen and I'm glad I had a good grip on the top.



The only way you can over cook it is that you cook it so long it goes so tender it falls all apart. Pretty hard to do I think. If you run out of moisture it will burn, need to watch for that. I would cook in 10 to 15 minute increments and check on it. The 7th pic from the top was after about 10 minutes, and then I added the mushrooms (which produces moisture), and cooked for another 15 minutes and that is the other pics I posted, I cooked for about another 10 to 15 minutes, and there were pretty tender then. And the next day I cooked them some more on the stove (4/6 pic), and I had to really be careful and not stir with a spoon or it would have fallen apart.

All night on the crock pot would be another good way to cook them, I have never tried... Here is another time I cooked them, ladled over a rib eye steak..

I have deep fried them before, still tough, even done rare..





The only way to get them tender is cook the hell out of them...I imagine yours were tough, even with the skin on.

Tried my hand at fajita duck last night for the first time, it was darn good, I have to put it at the top for ways to eat duck. Caramelized some onions and bell pepper first, sliced a season duck breast and into the skillet, throw tortillas on top to heat them, I'll be doing this again. up
