Duck in slow cookerCooking duck in a slow cooker is as easy as combining the melted fat and duck meat since you can  walk away after tossing the ingredients and return a few hours later for a meltingly tender and flavorful meat. Accumulation of fat may happen while cooking duck and so  you can overcome this problem by using layers of other major ingredients underneath. Trail down this blog to learn the procedure involved in slow cooking duck.





Things Required:

  • Raw duck (preferably breast/legs)
  • Strainer
  • Water
  • A slow cooker



  • Take the required quantity of duck either as a whole or as specific parts/pieces.
  • Clean and remove the inedible parts of the duck.
  • Put the portions in a strainer and wash them twice with hands.
  • Set the clean duck in the slow cooker above a layer of fat or oil and any other ingredient of the recipe (vegetables if any)
  • Pour adequate water (add salt if required) and immerse the duck in it. Always use 3-4 times the volume of water to the duck.
  • If the setting is high cook for about 3-5 hrs and if the setting is low cook for about 8 hrs until it becomes tender.

Do's And Don'ts:

  • If you are using frozen duck, ensure that it is defrosted and thawed before cooking in the slow cooker.
  • Pour water as required since more water may cause over flowing and less water may lead to undercooking.
