Description

This homemade duck stock recipe is so rich and tasty. I prefer making this instant pot duck broth using a pressure cooker to save time.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4lbs (2 kg) duck
  • 12 cups of water
  • 1 large onion halved
  • 8 whole cardamom pods
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt to taste (I use 2 tsp)
  • Pepper to taste (I use 1/2 tsp)

Instructions

Instant Pot Method

  1. You need the largest Instant Pot (8 quarts) for a 4 lb (2 kg) duck. Add the water, cardamom pods, onion, salt, pepper, bay leaves to the Instant Pot.
  2. Rinse the whole duck in your sink. Make sure to disinfect your sink after.
  3. Put the whole duck in the Instant Pot. It might be a little tight.
  4. Close the Instant Pot. Set to high for 45 minutes for stock or 30 minutes for a broth. (See note 1)
  5. Once the Instant Pot has finished, release pressure and open the lid.
  6. Strain the liquid from the duck and other ingredients.

Stovetop Method

  1. You need a large pot that can handle a 4 lb (2 kg) duck. Add the water, cardamom pods, onion, salt, pepper, bay leaves to the pot.
  2. Rinse the whole duck in your sink. Make sure to disinfect your sink after.
  3. Put the whole duck in the pot. Add 3 extra cups of water (these will boil off as the duck cooks on the stovetop).
  4. Set to stovetop to high for 45 minutes uncovered. Cover the pot and turn the stovetop to medium heat. Cook for another 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Strain the liquid from the duck and other ingredients.

Notes

  1. If cooking the duck with the Instant Pot for 45 minutes, the duck meat will be falling off the bone quite literally. If using the duck for another recipe after, just keep in mind it won't stay all together. I prefer to cook the duck for 45 minutes because the stock is much richer.
  2. If there's no room in the cooking pot, you can quarter the duck. 
  3. For every 1 lb (0.5kg) increase of weight of duck using a pressure cooker, add 3 cups of water.
  4. For every 1 lb (0.5kg) increase of weight of duck using a stovetop pot, add 4 cups of water.
  5. If using anything over a 6 lb (3 kg) duck, I recommend adjusting the seasoning ratio as well.
