Ingredients

1 large duck
giblets removed, whole
*
1 teaspoon white pepper
freshly ground
1 ½ tablespoons cinnamon
ground
1 ½ tablespoons ginger
ground
¾ cup brown sugar
*
¾ cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 Teaspoons peanut oil
*
½ teaspoon star anise
ground

Directions

Bring a pot of water, large enough to hold the duck, to a boil.

Remove from heat and plunge duck in the water for 5 minutes.

Remove and pat dry.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring just to the boil.

Off heat, allow mixture to cool to room temperature.

Liberally coat the duck with the mixture and let it sit at room temperature for 3 hours so that the coating dries out.

To cook: Place duck on a rack, breast side up in a preheated 350℉ (180℃) oven for 2- 2½ hours.

Roast until skin is crisp and brown. Check occasionally and regulate temperature so that the coating does not burn.

To serve: Let duck cool to room temperature.

Carefully carve pieces from the bone being sure to include the crisp skin.

Roll up in Chinese Pancakes (recipe follows) with a dab of hoisin sauce and slivered green onions.

I have heard of the pecking duck for quite a long time but never dared to try making it. This afternoon I tried this simplified peking duck, while it was cooking, my son couldn't stop asking me when will it be ready, the smell filled the room. When the dish hit the table, my son and my husband were drooling. Awesome!
