Duck Legs with Red Wine and Plum Sauce

Duck Legs with Red Wine and Plum Sauce ~ Simple Food


Plum sauce is quite a common accompaniment for duck because its sweet taste is very complimentary to this kind of meat.

I have developed this particular sauce to have richness from the red wine, sharpness from the plums and sweetness from the brown sugar.

To get that something extra a small amount of Hoisin stirred in at the very end calms down the sharpness and brings it all together as a smooth tasting accompaniment for your duck.
