Yield:
8 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 whole domestic duck, (about 4 1/2 to 5 pounds) cut into 8 pieces
  • Salt
  • Cayenne
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 pound smoked pork sausage, sliced into 1/2-inch thick pieces
  • 1/2 pound dried navy white beans
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 4 cups duck stock
  • 4 cups water
  • 3 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Directions

In a large saucepan, over medium heat, add the olive oil. Season the duck pieces with salt and pepper. When the oil is hot, sear the duck, fat side down for about 4 to 6 minutes. Turn over the duck and continue to sear for 4 minutes. Remove the duck from the pan and set aside. Add the onions and celery to the pan. Season the vegetables with salt and cayenne. Saute the vegetables until wilted, about 4 minutes. Add the sausage and continue to saute for 4 minutes. Stir in the beans, bay leaves, and garlic. Add the duck stock, water and fresh thyme. Place the duck pieces back into the pan. Bring the liquid to a boil and skim off any cloudy scum that has risen to the service. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, uncovered for 3 hours, stirring occasionally or until the meat and beans are tender. Reseason if necessary and stir in the green onions and parsley.
