 Stewed Whole Duck or locally known in Philippines as "patotin"  is popular in the province of Cotabato and ilo-ilo as one of the most delicious appetizer, somehow known for its unique taste but in simple way of cooking.


1 whole duck, dressed
1 liter Sprite or 7 Up
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt
5 cloves garlic
3 bay leaves
1 tsp peppercorns, crushed
1/2 cup onion leaves (cut into 1 inch long)
lemon grass

1 can pineapple tid bits
2 pcs carrots


stuff duck with lemon grass.

mix remaining ingredients in a pot and cook duck over medium heat.

cook until duck is tender. simmer until sprite mixture thickens. serve.
you can add a cup of coconut vinegar (Tuba) if you are using Sprite/7 Up and wants your Patotin have a reddish color

you can also use Coke instead of Sprite/7 Up. Don't add Tuba as Coke will already give your dish a redish tint.

don't cook over high heat especially towards the last part of cooking. this may make your sauce bitter.

adjust measurements according to your taste preference
