3. Leave the duck breasts to sizzle for about 15 minutes uncovered or until the skin takes on a golden hue and has rendered most of its fat. Do not shake the pan or remove the duck 

4. Remove the duck (note that the duck will still be raw) and pour out half of the duck fat into a separate container (for later use) and turn up the heat slightly 

5. To the duck fat, add the bacon and stir fry for 2 – 3 minutes or until they start to crisp 

6. Add the potatoes to the duck fat, cover it and cook for 10 minutes while continuously stirring. Cook for 10 minutes until the potato looks sticky and is brown at the edges

7. Add in the cabbage and stir until glossy. Pour in the stock and nestle the duck skin side up amongst the cabbage and potato and cover the pan 

8. Let it simmer for 10 minutes until the vegetables are tender and the food is completely cooked 

9. Remove the duck from the pan and stir in the parsley and the garlic 

10. Assemble by spooning a little bit of vegetable, bacon and juice onto a plate and letting the duck sit on top
