4 pounds duck -- cut into 6 pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium yellow onion -- peeled and sliced
2 cups Greek tomato sauce -- see * note
1/2 cup dry red wine
1 cup green olives
1 teaspoon salt -- to taste
1 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste

Preparation / Directions:

* Note: See the "Greek Tomato Sauce" recipe which is included in this collection. Heat a 6-quart stove-top casserole and add the oil. Brown the duck pieces and remove from the pan. Sauté the onion and then add all ingredients to the pot. Cover and bring to a simmer. You may need a bit of water. Simmer until tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Watch that it does not dry out, in which case you must add a bit more water. Comments: This dish is a smash. I tasted it for the first time in a fine restaurant on the outskirts of Athens and the recipe is simple to duplicate. You will have no problem with this one.
