Add enough water to just cover and bring to a boil. Cover the casserole and transfer it to the oven. Braise the duck for 1 1/2 hours, or until it is very tender. Remove the duck legs from the liquid and let cool. Discard the duck skin and braising liquid. Pull the meat from the bones in large shreds.
