The recipe for empanadas with duck comes from the book "Lisboet" by Nuno Mendes, which I brought back from a trip from Lisbon. You can prepare empadas in the form of dumplings or, like me, in the form of cupcakes.

Execution

DUCK FAT

Cut off the fat and skin from the duck legs and simmer in a frying pan. Pour the fat into a bowl, add the skins to the broth.

Duck broth

Place the duck legs in a pot, pour water over it, add the remaining ingredients and season. Cook over low heat for 1.5 hours or until the meat is tender. We take out the duck thighs and carrots, cool them down. Separate the meat from the bones and tear it apart with a fork into fibers. Dice the carrots, reserve the broth for the dough and filling.

CAKE

Sift the flour into a bowl, add salt and butter, olive oil and duck fat. Pour about 100 ml of duck broth, mix quickly and knead the dough until it is elastic and smooth. Place it on a lightly floured table top, roll it into a ball, wrap it in a food vial and cool it for a minimum of 1 hour.

STORING

In a deep frying pan, heat the olive oil and duck fat over medium heat, add cinnamon, anise star, orange peel strips and bay leaf. Add chopped onion, fennel and garlic and fry for 10 minutes. Add meat, chopped carrots and white wine and cook for a few more minutes. Season and leave to cool, then remove the cinnamon, star anise, orange zest and bay leaf.

Melt the butter in a pan over low heat, add flour and fry for a few minutes until it is light golden. Gradually add 300 ml of duck broth, bring to the boil, stirring constantly, until a thick sauce is obtained. Add the filling to the sauce along with the grated orange peel and parsley.

EMPANAS

Preheat the oven to 200 ° C

Roll out the dough to a thickness of about 3 mm. Using a glass, for example, cut out circles large enough to cover the muffin molds with an excess of about 5 mm. Cut smaller circles from the second batch of dough so that they fit on top as lids.

We line the molds with larger circles of the dough and fill them with duck filling. We put smaller circles on top, squeeze the edges and stick together like dumplings. Cut a hole in the middle and smear the whole thing with the egg.

Bake for 30 - 40 minutes until golden. The empanadas are best eaten 15-20 minutes after they are taken out of the oven, while they are still warm, but the duck has rested a bit. They taste great with a glass of good wine.
