Chinese Style Slow-cooked Lamb Shoulder

In this modern fast-paced society, time is precious. There are so many things to accomplish with so little time. Everything and everyone is moving so very fast. As parents of 3 school-going kids, my wife and I have to balance our home, the kids, our offices and our personal lives, and at times we can be feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Therefore it is important that we find and pursue common passion to balance our lives and to spend time and have fun as a couple. When you are passionate about something, your energy intensifies. And when your energy is more focused, you are able to accomplish more with the same or lesser time. And we found our passions in food and wine. We both love to eat (who doesn’t). I love to cook, her passion is in baking and we both enjoy a glass or two of wine with our weekend meals or on weekday evenings after putting the kids to bed.

Slow Roast Whole Duck

Of late, I really enjoy roasting my meat at a low temperature for longer time. The slow-roasting method minimizes moisture loss resulting in a more tender product. Last weekend, I applied the method to roast a whole duck for our Sunday dinner. Despite the longer roasting time, active cooking time was only about 10 minutes. I had the whole afternoon free after putting the duck in the oven only to be reminded that dinner was ready when the whole house was filled with the amazing aroma from the kitchen.

If you have no time to cook but still yearn for a good Sunday dinner, this is the recipe for you!
