Farm raised duck breast is as meaty and delicious as a good steak. This recipe from Table 10 has you roast the duck breast with apples and cinnamon and then glaze it with dark beer. This recipe calls for Abita Turbo Dog which is a local brew in New Orleans, but any stout, bitter beer will do. Sweet spices pair well with the duck and when used in moderation, star anise, nutmeg and cloves are good additions.
This is also delicious with the sauteed kale or spinach, roasted carrots or potatoes, wild rice, you name it. Make sure you use a meat thermometer to test for doneness. This roast is perfect at 135 degrees F. Also, of course this makes great roast beef sandwiches for lunch throughout the week.
