  • duck legs - 2 (26.5 oz (750 g))
  • butter - 1 2/3 tbsp (25 g), German - style
  • oranges - 1 (juice and rind)
  • liqueur - orange, 2 tbsp (30 ml)
  • honey - 1 tbsp
  • cooking cream - 2/3 cup (150 ml)


Remove any excess fat from the duck legs, as well as the cartilage with the skin on the bottom, to reveal the bones underneath.

Heat up a pan without oil, sprinkle the legs with salt and pepper and brown them on all sides.

After you flip the meat over, add 1 2/3 tbsp (25 g) of butter to the pan and pour it over the duck meat once it melts.

Transfer the browned legs to an oven dish and bake 45-60 min. in a 356°F (180 °C) oven.

Grate the orange rind, squeeze the juice from the citrus and put it into the pot on the stove. Add the honey and sprinkle a little salt and pepper after the juice comes to a boil. In a thin trickle, pour in the cream with the liqueur, stir and remove from the stove after several min. and strain the sauce.

Serve the duck legs with the orange sauce.find similar recipes here
