Winter is here and the kitchen is a cookin' up a storm of it's own with my Duck Iron Chef Challenge. After a quick trip to the store to pick up some Maple Leaf Duck. I fired up the crock pot and made a Duck Dumplin' Soup. What better to come home to on a cold winter day!?!
To start with I cut up my duck into bite sized chunks and cooked in a skillet on the stove.
Then I followed the recipe accordingly.
Duck Dumplin' Soup
1 lb. Duck breasts
1 pkg. Dry Onion Soup Mix
6 cups hot water
2 carrots peeled and diced
1 stalk celery finely chopped
1 can diced tomatoes (drained)
2 cups flour
1 tsp. Salt
4 tsp. Baking Powder
3 T. Vegetable oil
2/3 cup milk
In crock pot pour in water and onion soup mix. Stir. Then add cooked duck chunks, carrots, celery and tomatoes. Stir again and cover, cook on Low for 4-6 hours.
30 minutes prior to serving; mix up dumplin' recipe. Turn crock pot to high and drop spoon fulls of the mixture on top of the soup. Cover and let sit for 30 minutes. Serve and enjoy!!
The duck gives this soup a rich flavor and the dumplins' with give you that nice comfort food feeling that you'll want to go back for seconds for.
