    • 4 duck breast
    • salt and pepper

    • 2 cups red wine
    • 2 tsp. black peppercorns (cracked)
    • 2 tsp. shallots (minced)
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 2 cups duck or chicken stock
    • 2 cups fresh pears (peeled, seeded, and medium diced)
    • As needed cornstarch and water


Dry the duck breast of any moisture and score the skin with a knife.

Season with salt and pepper and sear the duck breasts in a medium-hot pan to render the fat (skin side down)

Once a golden brown color is achieved, turn the duck breasts over and lightly brown the flesh side.

Remove from the pan and finish in a 350 degree oven until desired doneness.

Remove the grease from the pan and add peppercorns, shallots, and bay leaf; and red wine, stir and reduce liquid by half.

Add stock and simmer for 20 minutes; add diced pears and simmer for 5 minutes.

Thicken sauce with cornstarch and water mixture.
