.: Info :.

Chinese grilled duck is delicious.  It is a typical food which can be found easily in most of the Chinese restaurant.   Taro is a tropical plant primarily grown as a root vegetable.  Its texture is like potato.  Taro is perfect fix to simmer with the duck together.
But like potato, simmer the taro will be easily dissolved completely into the sauce mixture.  The best way to avoid this issue is to pan-fry the taro.  Once the surface is brown, it will be harder to dissolve while simmering.
The duck broth is excellent for other noodle.  You can also pre-made it to save time. 

.: Ingredients :.

1- 1 Chinese grilled duck
2- 1/2 onion, peeled, cut into pieces
3- 2 tbsp of minced green onion
4- 300g of taro, peeled, cut into large pieces

.: Sauce Mixture:.
[(just for reference only]

1- 375ml of Swanson Chicken Broth 

.: Steps :.

Cut the duck into half.  Separate the meat and the bone.  Put the meat aside.  Add the bone with the chicken broth in a pot.  Cover and simmer over medium heat for 30 minutes.

Heat the non-sticky pan with 2 tbsp of oil over high heat.  Pan-fry the taro until one side is light brown.  Turn the taro to the other side.  Pan-fry it until light brown.  Add in the 1 tbsp of green onion and onion with 1/3 tsp of salt and stir-fry until soft (about 2 minutes).  

3-  Remove the bone from the pot.  Add in the taro, green onion and onion.  Cover and simmer over low-medium heat for 10 minutes or until the taro is soft.

Add in the duck on top of the taro.  Cover and simmer for another 5 minutes or until the duck is warm.  Top with the rest of green onion.  Serve it in hot. 

.: Tips :.

1- Taro won't completely dissolved in the sauce if you brown the taro before simmering.
2- Cut the duck into large pieces in order to keep it moist during simmering.
3- You can use other brand of chicken broth but adjust the taste accordingly.  Add light soy sauce if it tastes too light.
