  • 1.1 Duck Breast 1 Jar of Bing Cherry Preserves Salt
    3.Red Wine Vinegar Sides: Mixed Greens
    4.2 Dozen Almonds or Fresh small bunch of Asparagus
    5.1 can sliced white potatoes


Step 1

Start by prepping the duck. Take a sharp knife and "score" the fat side of the duck breast in a crisscross pattern. Be careful not to cut too deep, you don`t want to cut into the meat. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.

Step 2

Heat a pan over a medium flame. Place the duck breast in fat-side down. Cook for about 6 minutes to render off the fat

Step 3

Flip the duck breast and sear the other side for about a minute.

Step 4

Remove the duck breast and place on a baking sheet/tray fat-side down. Preheat your over to 400 degrees, and cook for 7-9 minutes, depending on how thick your breast is

Step 5

While that`s cooking, you can begin working on your sauce. Take 1/2 of a jar of Bing Cherry preserves and mix it with two tablespoons of red wine vinegar. If you don`t hvae red wine vinegar, you can substitute with 2 tablespoons of ANY vinegar you have on hand, or maybe some cooked ACTUAL red wine, or even tap water. Stir.

Step 6

Remove the duck from the oven and let it "rest" for a couple minutes before slicing. Th-th-th-that`s all, folks!

Step 7

For Anyone Interested:
The sides were ultra-easy as well:

Step 8

Potatoes and Asparagus

Step 9

Heat a pan over a medium flame and dump in a can of sliced white potatoes (drain the starchy water first, though). Season with Salt, Pepper, Paprika, Garlic Powder, and a liberal helping of minced onions. Cook for about 7 minutes, stirring frequently.

Step 10

Boil some water and throw in the fresh asparagus! After about 3 minutes, quickly remove the veggies and dunk them in a bowl of icewater. Now you`ve "blanched" the asparagus.

Step 11


Step 12

Take a bag of mixed greens and toss it with some of the extra bing cherry sauce.

Step 13

Throw a bunch of almonds into a ziplock bag and whack that sucker against the wall!
