Cuisine: Main

Skill Level: Medium



  • 5 Cups skinless duck breast fillets, cut into 1- to 2-inch chunks
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 Cup flour
  • 6 Slices bacon diced
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Cups diced onion
  • 3 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 Cups dry red wine
  • 3 Cups beef stock
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3 1/2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 Bouquet garni (fresh rosemary, thyme, and bay leaves tied together with string)
  • 500 Grams quartered fresh mushrooms
  • 2 Cups quartered small red potatoes
  • 3 Carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • Fresh Italian parsley, minced


  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Season the duck with salt and pepper. Toss it with flour to coat evenly. Then shake off any excess flour.
  • In a large, heavy oven-safe pot, cook the bacon over medium heat until it is lightly browned. Add the olive oil and heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Toss in the duck pieces and cook, stirring often until evenly browned. Add the onion and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic, wine, and beef stock. Bring to a boil, cover with a lid or foil, and place in the preheated oven for 3 to 4 hours or until meat can be broken apart with moderate pressure.
  • Add remaining ingredients except Italian parsley. Liquid should just cover the contents of the pot; add more beef broth if needed. Return the pot to the oven for another hour. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Ladle the stew into bowls and top with Italian parsley.
