Braised Bone-in Duck Simmered in Orange-Thyme Sauce

For the Braised Duck
4 pieces of duck (we used a combination of bone-in legs and boneless breasts)
2 Tbs. of EPIC Duck Fat
1 Tbs. of sea salt
Dash of white pepper
Sprinkle of dried thyme

For the Orange Thyme Sauce
1 fresh orange, peeled, white piths removed
1/4 cup of purified water
1 Tbs. of EPIC Pork Lard
4 Tbs. of ghee
2 Tbs. of coconut aminos
1 tsp. of sea salt
Dash of white pepper
1 tsp. Of dried garlic powder
1 tsp. Of dried onion powder
1 Tbs. of dried thyme
1/2 tsp. Of arrowroot powder
Zest from 1 fresh orange


PLACE 2 tablespoons of EPIC Duck Fat in a cast iron skillet and turn to medium low heat.  Add duck, skin-side up, and sprinkle with sea salt, white pepper and dried thyme. Cover skillet and cook on low heat, flipping once or twice, for 30 minutes.

WHILE your duck is braising, place all Orange Thyme Sauce ingredients (except fresh orange zest) in a small saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes.  After 15 minutes, whisk in 1/2 teaspoon of arrowroot powder. Transfer to a high-speed blender, add your orange zest, and blend until smooth. Place sauce in a bowl and set aside until you are ready to serve it with your duck.

HEAT your oven’s broiler and place skillet with the duck skin-side up under its heat for 5 minutes, or until the duck skin turns a golden brown color. Remove from heat and serve with Orange Thyme Sauce.

Porky Roasted Brussels Sprouts

1 lb. of Brussels sprouts
2 Tbs. of melted EPIC Bison Tallow
1 tsp. of sea salt
Dash of white pepper
1 tsp. of dried garlic powder
1/4 cup of minced parsley or cilantro
1/4 cup of EPIC Hickory Smoked Uncured Bacon Bites


PREHEAT your oven to 350 degrees.

RINSE your Brussels sprouts and slice off each end, then slice in half. Arrange on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle sea salt, white pepper, dried garlic powder and 2 Tbs. of melted EPIC Bison Tallow and toss on the tray to combine.

ROAST in the oven for 25 minutes, tossing with a spatula once after 15 minutes.

REMOVE from the oven and sprinkle with freshly minced parsley (or cilantro) and EPIC Hickory Smoked Bacon Bits.

Zucchini Carrot Parsnip Fritters

4 eggs
1 tsp. of sea salt
Dash of white pepper
2 whole scallions, minced
1 Tbs. of dried dill
2 medium zucchini, shredded
2 medium carrots, peeled and shredded
2 medium parsnips, peeled and shredded
3 Tbs. of coconut flour
4 Tbs. of EPIC Pork Lard for frying

Note: EPIC Provisions is currently sold out of Pork Lard, but their Duck Fat is a great substitution


MIX eggs, sea salt, white pepper, minced scallion and dried dill in a large bowl. Ad shredded zucchini, carrot and parsnip and gently toss to combine with a baker’s spatula.

SPRINKLE coconut flour evenly over tossed veggie mix and gently combine. Form 1” thick patties in your hands, about the size of your palm, and set on a plate.

HEAT 1 Tbs. of EPIC Pork Lard in a cast iron skillet to medium high, then fry each patty for 3 minutes per side.  Add an additional tablespoon of EPIC Pork Lard each time you fry a new batch of fritters.

ENJOY with freshly minced scallion.
