Duck stewed with vegetables

The dispute over whether meat is good or not is a long time between vegetarians and meat eaters. Who is right is hard to say. But in order for cooked food to benefit, not harm, you need to properly combine the ingredients with each other.

Meat cooked with vegetables supplies the body with animal and vegetable proteins, carbohydrates, fats, amino acids and beneficial trace elements.

If the meat is fat, vegetables help better digestion of food. They have few calories, so the dish is not so heavy for the stomach and the whole organism.

Duck stew with vegetables: cooking details

  • Fat duck meat just needs to be served with vegetables, and those that are easily digested and do not add kilograms in the form of extra centimeters at the waist and hips.
  • Fat duck is better to stew than fry. Before extinguishing it is washed. If there is a lot of fat on it, it is cut off, and then used instead of butter, when browning vegetables.
  • Duck can be stewed with any vegetables: potatoes, carrots, onions, zucchini, eggplants, as well as with cabbage, green peas, green beans and tomatoes.
  • It is desirable to add a lot of greens in the finished dish with the duck. Spicy herbs improve the taste of meat, make it fragrant and nourishing.
  • Using these or other vegetables, take into account their cooking time and add to the meat in turn. If you put all the vegetables at once, then in the end some will digest, while others will remain half-baked.
  • Sour vegetables - tomatoes or sauerkraut - soften meat well, but slow down the process of cooking potatoes. Therefore, they are put soon after the potatoes or added to an almost ready dish after preliminary heat treatment in another pan.
  • A duck with vegetables is cooked on the stove, choosing thick-walled dishes for this: a cauldron, a frying pan, a stewpan.
  • Also, it can be cooked in the oven, multi-cooker, microwave.
