I am a huge duck breast lover. Even more so when they are served with this legendary orange and white beer sauce!

Ingredients

  • 2 duck breasts, fat scored into a tight crosshatch pattern
  • 3/4 cup Belgian wheat beer by Sober Carpenter Brewery
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Salt and pepper from the mill

Ingredients for the sauce

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup Belgian white beer by Sober Carpenter Brewery
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon Provence herbs
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Salt and pepper from the mill

Preparation

  • Place the duck breasts skin side up in a large airtight dish, add the rest of the ingredients, season with salt and pepper generously and close the dish. Mix and place in the fridge for 6 hours. Remove from fridge 30 minutes before cooking.
  • In a saucepan, put the ingredients for the sauce, season with salt and pepper and mix. Bring to a boil, reduce to low heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the sauce is slightly thickened. The larger the pan, the faster the sauce will reduce. Be careful, the beer will foam so stir constantly at the beginning. Keep warm.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, place the duck breasts skin side down. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the skin is golden brown and crispy. Flip and continue cooking for 5 minutes. At this point, the doneness should be medium-rare. Place on a plate, cover tightly with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve and drizzle with the sauce!
