    My gf gave me this recipe, it's really good:

    Beer duck

    you need:
    Cooking wine
    Ginger
    Garlic
    Dried red chilli
    Pepper
    bean paste
    beer
    oil
    duckmeat

    First marinade with cookingwine or chinese alcohol together with duckmeat and some ginger in a bowl for 30minutes.
    Then fry the duck, only the duckmeat with oil. untill it becomes yellow/gold. 80% cooked.
    Then put the dried red chilli and pepper with the duck. fry it a little bit. Then put in some bean paste.
    When you start to smell the taste put some water and a can of beer to cover the duck.
    Then put 15 parts of garlic in the water. Cover the pan. put it on a small fire and cook it for an hour.
    Keep checking the fire, if the water runs out, add some more.
    if the meat is nice and soft, put in another can of beer and let it cook another 15mins.

    You can also add some potatoes or vegetables.


    Hope you can understand it, because I had a hard time understanding her. But she can make this really good. Very delicious.

    Good luck and let me know how it tastes.

    What is 'cooking wine'?  I was always taught to use only wines that I was willing to drink for any dish I cooked.

    It's translated from Chinese. Go to an asian toko. If they are Chinese  ask them for liao jiu. (say lee au, joe)
    You can also use bai jiu, that is white alcohol. really strong chinese alcohol (47-55%).

    Or try some normal wine. But I don't think it has to be that good, because you will use the beer and water later.

    Frankly, 'Chinese' style food is not my choice - so I'll 'pass' on this recipe!

    Chinese style in the Netherlands I don't really like.
    But Chinese food in China is totally different.
    You haven't really had genuine Chinese food if you haven't eaten it in China.

    And China is so big that there is a wide diversity in Chinese style.

    But then again. if you don't like rice or noodles, that will cross off a lot of dishes haha.

    I've eaten Chinese food in Hong Kong - where there are restaurants with cooks from all over mainland China.

    I like rice and I like noodles - but Chinese would come waaaaay down my list of favourite cuisines of the world.

    Sorry I am behind the time here.  I wonder what bean paste is. Is it DouBanJiang?  Thanks.

    That's one form of it, and probably the most common when someone says just bean paste. There are some other types as well

    It doesn't look extremely difficult to cook at home. I'll definitely try this one day. Thanks for the recipe!
