Duck Breast Easy Stove Top Style

  • Author: Tina Turbin


I love duck any way you make it and easy is the best way when I am in a rush, especially when I am making a duck breast just for little me. I have created a simple recipe that is duck breast easy stove top style and anyone can make this. Seriously, it is that easy.


  • Per 1 medium-sized full duck breast half
  • 1 tablespoon ghee or grass-fed butter (coconut oil is okay)
  • 1 clove garlic (crushed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and additional pepper to taste
  • 1 medium sized shallot
  • 2 tablespoons sweet red wine of choice (I used Marsala)
  • Note: increase the below ingredients according to how many duck breasts you choose to cook.


  1. Cut duck breast(s) into large thin slices, about ¾ inch thick.
  2. Heat fat of choice in skillet over medium heat.
  3. Coat duck with garlic, pepper, onion powder and salt.
  4. Slice shallot.
  5. Sauté shallot over medium heat until opaque.
  6. Add duck, pushing shallots to side a bit.
  7. Sear duck on each side over medium heat to desired tenderness.
  8. Add red wine to skillet and stir together.
  9. Blend all ingredients to incorporate the flavors.
  10. Cook until done to desired temperature. (I like mine medium-well and this takes around 12 minutes.)
  11. Remove duck and sauce and place on platter.
  12. Enjoy!


I like to serve with a starch such as a paleo sweet potato mash or a turnip mash.
