expired Duck Breast - Luv-a-Duck - 1/2 Price @ Coles $19kg

1370

Very rare to get duck breast at this price anywhere. It works out about $3.70 per average breast piece. And it's all meat with no hassles deboning a whole duck etc. In store photo

Previously posted in early December but since expired. Can't believe I didn't see that one. Can't unexpire it as Kirks no longer available.

Here's my recipe for a nice reduction sauce, which also goes extremely well with pork belly:
1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup red wine vinegar, 1 cinnamon stick, 2 star anise. Reduce slightly, add cup chicken stock, reduce, add peel from 1 orange, with the juice from the same, further reduce and ENJOY.

      Cheers, you can't muck the recipe up, bit more or less sugar, less or more rwv will work….and then add some salt and pepper to taste as well.

      If you prefer stickier best prepared earlier and cooled……or reduce more while cooking, 5+ minutes each reduction.
      I'm drooling myself now…been a week since I made some.

        What veggies etc do you normally serve with this?

        (hoping for another 1 line recipe…)

          Try a salad

          Panzanella
          Sliced red onion, chunked ripe tomatoes, same size plums, toasted torn baguette, capers, red wine vinegar, olive oil salt and pepper.

          If you're cooking for the other half or a date. You're in!

          All it needs is some steamed baby bok choy/choy sum or green beans and some jasmine rice. Or steamed asian greens with garlic.

    Is this as hard as chicken breast to cook? I dont think duck is as lean, but my chicken breast tend to came out dry :(

    • +2 votes

      if you dont over cook it, this is as juicy as….pink is fine. Its not like chicken which you have to cook well, and drys out very easily!.

    I luv-a-breast. I mean duck. Yes. That'll do

  •  

    a whole roast duck is only $26 to $28 any day from Chinese roast shop 😀 Get roast pork too whilst you are there. Yum

    •  

      Yes you are right about this, might be cheaper to get Chinese roast duck

      However Chinese joints use imported Chinese ducks which are toxic fed ducks and they are beaten up to death as per Chinese tradition.

      This duck is Ozzie duck which is better quality and humanely killed

        "Humanely killed" lol
        For the Luv of breasts Bargaingeek, Okay!

          "Humanely killed" lol

          Ok, lovingly killed then…does that sound nicer? :P

        • +2 votes

          @StewBalls: just a lol at the assumption between and Aussie duck being killed "humanely" vs a chinese duck being killed non "humanely"
          At the end of the day I'm sure the duck wasn't feeling to good about the whole idea here or there, but for the Luv of Duck breasts i'm ok with it in either place of the world.

          @ozy: Honestly, there probably is a tangible difference in the end stage treatment of the animals; however, I take your point on the end result, either way it's not looking good for Daffy or Donald here!

          FWIW, I was also going to suggest honourably killed…but I thought that might come across as facetious! ;)

          @StewBalls:

          Ok, lovingly killed then…does that sound nicer? :P

          Well you have a point, because ducks ain't humans.

          Maybe they were duckinly killed.

        😂 Still yummy. I can't believe 500 gram is normally $38. I never considered duck expensive as we ate it all the time. even at sunnybank you can get whole ducked cooked 2 ways for $38 two dishes 1) peking duck pancakes and 2) fried noodles with duck or duck congee. There's duck overload lol

      This deal is for duck breast…all meat.

      There's stuff-all meat in a whole roast duck; tasty or not, you're comparing apples & oranges.

      •  

        There's enough meat for a large family. But for Chinese ppl that's only one of a variety of dishes. Yummy and it's nicer than just breast meat. I love Legs! yum best part

        I'm just saying that Duck is cheap all year around.

        •  

          I know what you're saying, but you're wrong…duck meat is not cheap all year round.

          Using your model you're paying over $50 per kg of actual meat…that's actually pretty dumb in comparison to this deal when you think about it rationally without the cognitive distortions of drumsticks & Chinese families.

        •  

          @StewBalls: u can't compare confit duck legs with even the best duck breast

        •  

          @Ashraph6: That's entirely the point…you can't compare utterly different cuts of poultry in this context…period.

          Don't get me wrong, I love roast duck…I quite literally finished the last of one yesterday & just ate the last of the roast pork I got from Emperor's Garden a few days ago…but comparing the purchase of that to discrete breast meat is indescribably specious.

    As a father of a little girl, the following song comes into my head:

    "5 little ducks went out one day, over the hill and far away, mother duck went quack, quack, quack, but only 4 little ducks came back…"

    Little did mother duck know there was a Coles supermarket over the hill.

    … I am still dreading the moment when my daughter realises that chicken is chicken…

      How sad that you dread your child learning the truth about how you unnecessarily treat other animals.

    •  

      I was thinking about the Duck Song on YouTube! But that duck didn't want lemonade.

  •  

    I love Justine's duck breasts

  •  

    Thanks OP for sharing this deal, this will make a great family meal :)

  •  

    I checked our local Coles ( Blackwood SA ) and they no longer stock any duck products. They used to as Ive cooked a whole duck bought from there previously.
    ANyone in SA know if there local coles stocks luv a duck ??

    Marion ??

    •  

      Can't find it in WA either :( Anyone else manage to find it in Perth?

      •  

        No, I talked to the guy who runs the meat department at my local Coles here in WA. He said he tried to order some in for Christmas but head office refused to ship any over the Nullarbor. Supposedly they can't guarantee freshness.

        That's a bit weird seeing that they actually sell whole ducks (fresh, not frozen) from the same company. How can transporting a whole duck be less of a problem than just a breast?

      •  

        Vic - not available in the two outlets I looked.

  •  

    Ordered 7 by click and collect for a 4pm pick up today. At 3.47pm get an email they can only supply 2. They ran out of duck was the answer from my serving attendant.

    Helped myself to another 5 off the shelf instore. I thought it was online only.

    Thanks OP. Great Bargain.

  •  

    Dinner finally sorted! Thanks OP, and Daffy

  •  

    Just bought 4 trays from my local Coles. Plenty available. Must be no OZbargainer in my suburb!

  •  

    Checked three Coles in my area and not a duck breast in site. In fact they weren't even advertising it…hope they restock before the sale ends

  •  

    Thanks Coops1. Love Duck. None left at my Coles - anymore :-)

  •  

    not on sale at my coles 2035

  •  

    Seems the whole of Perth has none.

  •  

    Got a couple in Hobart today, scanned at the right price per kilo, but double the weight, making each packet full price. As per scanning policy, got one free and the second one at the advertised price.

    •  

      Nice work. I went for my second fix in New Town TAS, none left. Will keep checking for restock this week, and will probably also get 5x on rain check and freeze them

  •  

    I got 12 packs home delivered ( free shipping with some cheese to get it over $100 for 1st buy free deliv. Then grabbed another 4 packs from a coles near a mates place I was visiting - so 16 packs - 32 breasts now in the fridge. WIll need to freeze some as the family will get sick of duck 24x7

  •  

    None of the packs in Fairfield QLD were this price. All full price.

  •  

    Thanks OP. Made duck risotto - quite a bit of effort but worth it for the end result. Used this recipe but substituted Esser Chardonnay with white wine.
