How to make it

  • Roast Duck:
  • Roast duck at 275f for 3-4 hours making sure the breast skin has been sliced from side-to-side (scissors is easiest way) in 1-inch increments, allowing for fat to drain.
  • Remove all meat from bones and refrigerate meat.
  • Make Broth:
  • Place bones in large stock pot.
  • Cover with water until 1-inch covered.
  • Add 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/2 sliced onion, 4 celery stalks, 2 chopped carrots.
  • Let simmer on low for up to 24-hours.
  • Strain solid ingredients, and refrigerate broth until needed.
  • Soup:
  • Add all ingredients into stock pot.
  • Simmer until carrots and onions are tender - about 35-45 minutes.
  • Add meatballs during the last 2 or 3 minutes of simmer, just until heated through.
  • Serve, adding sprinkle of chopped green onions to finish, as well as favorite hot sauce.

    Hi Diva! Please do let me know! We have this soup at least twice a month and I'm always playing with variations. Love to see what you do with it! -Sharon

    RML - you could use only chicken broth, but it won't have nearly the depth of flavor that duck offers. Chicken is more delicate and will be over-taken by the strong flavors. You could eliminate the apple-cider vinegar and go for a Pho-flavor - star anise as the main flavor component, and still try the meatball approach. Let me know how it goes! -Sharon

    This sounds wonderful! I know it would change the flavor, but I'm wondering how it would taste if made with chicken instead of duck. Whenever I have a critter as a pet, I just can't bring myself to consume it. (I steer clear of chickens and cows). My grandparents raised a doe who was later hit by a car :( - I also don't eat venison.
