Gascon Stir Fry


This is the first time I’ve added last night’s rice to today’s duck hearts.

  • duck hearts
  • duck fat
  • butter
  • small onion,diced
  • Cassis
  • cinnamon
  • red wine
  • sugar
  • salt
  • last night’s rice

Duck Hearts:

slice into rounds

brown in duck fat in batches ( all at once and you boil the damn things.  yuk )

add salt with each batch

remove from pan and set aside

Then the rest:

add big butter nub and diced onion

move around the pan until softy melty

add a splash of Cassis and a dash of your red wine

add a dash of cinnamon

add a dash of sugar

add the duck hearts back and move around the pan

add last night’s rice ( about a cup leftover so it seems )

Kids approved, nothing leftover for the adults. Thankfully we have some blanquette de veau to fill any hunger gaps.
