Duck Meat Loaf
Buttermilk Channel, Brooklyn, NY
Ryan Angulo puts a sophisticated spin on meat loaf by using succulent duck breast, sweet raisins, and grassy herbs.
- Olive oil as needed
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- 1 pound ground duck
- 4 ounces ground duck fat
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup chopped raisins
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- 1 tablespoon chopped thyme
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 egg
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Heat some olive oil in a medium saucepan. Sauté the onions until translucent, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
Put the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix with your hands until well combined, making sure that the fat is evenly distributed. Form the mixture into 4 patties and transfer to a plate. (A ring mold will help you form even patties.)
Heat a heavy cast-iron saucepan over medium heat. Sear the patties on both sides, no more than a minute per side. Transfer to a roasting pan and cook in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve.
