Duck Shanghai style

These duck legs need to be cooked for 2 hours and like to be laying as flat as possible in the pan.

What do we need for 4 persons:

4 Duck legs
Ginger root
Sunflower oil
Brown sugar
Star anise
Wine (any color) or beer

How do we cook them:

Fry duck until brown
Turn down the hob to medium
Then add some sunflower oil
Add 200 ml wine or beer
Add 3 soup spoons of Maggi
Add 1 soup spoon of sugar
Add 3 or 4 sliced ginger from root
Add a handful of fresh chives
Add 2 pieces of star anise
Add 400 ml water and reduce by half
Turn on high to boil and then turn down to simmer
From time to time turn them over

Ready to cut
When the meat is tender, take off the bone of each leg, put them on a plate and pour the juices over.
