4 pounds duck -- cut into 6 pieces
3 tablespoons peanut oil -- for pan frying
3 cloves garlic -- sliced thin
2 slices fresh ginger root - -- (quarter size), cut julienne
2 medium green onions -- cleaned
10 pieces dried Chinese mushrooms -- soaked in water
3 cups chicken stock -- fresh or canned
1/2 cup Chinese rice wine
1/4 cup soy sauce -- light
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 tablespoon mein see -- see * note

Preparation / Directions:

* Note: Soybean condiment, available in Oriental markets. Soak the dried Chinese mushrooms for 3 hours. Drain and discard water. Pan-brown the duck pieces in a few tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan. Remove the pieces to a 6-quart covered stove-top casserole. In the same frying pan sauté the garlic and ginger for a few moments. Add the green onion and sauté for just a moment. Place all ingredients in the casserole and mix well. Bring to a boil and lower the heat. Simmer, covered, until the duck is very tender, about 1 1/4 hours. Comments: This is a casserole dish that waits on top of the stove or in the oven until you are ready to serve. Easy, and a mushroom-lover's paradise. One each star anise may be substituted for the "mein see"
