Roasted Goose with Armagnac Sauce



Another festive dish with poultry - roasted goose. I don't usually make goose dishes because goose tends to be very oily. But once in a year, it's something that we shouldn't really miss, because when cooked right, it's just sensational...!

Ingredients
  • 2 haunches of goose
  • 400 ml chicken stock
  • Salt, pepper, marjoram, paprika powder
  • 4 tbs Armagnac
  • 50 ml cream
  • 1 tbs corn starch (mixed with 3 tbs water)
  • Sugar to taste (for the sauce)
Instructions
  • Rub the goose with salt, pepper, marjoram and paprika powder
  • Put goose, skin sides down, in a medium-heated skillet. Don't add any oil, because the goose itself is already fatty and going to produce (a LOT) of oil.
  • Cook goose until skin is golden brown (about 10 minutes - you want to get all that oil out). Turn over and cook for another 10 minutes.
  • Remove goose from skillet and put into a roasting tin. Pour chicken stock.
  • Roast goose at 160° for 2 hours.
  • Remove roasted goose from the tin and keep warm.
  • Pour the goose juice into a saucepan. Add the cream, armagnac, salt, sugar, pepper to taste and let it boil.
  • Add more chicken stock if necessary and the corn starch mixture to thicken the sauce.
  • Serve goose with the armagnac sauce, carbs and braised vegetables of your choice!



Happy New Year, everyone! It's 2011...!!

  9. Happy New Year to you & yours! Cik adik dari mana ya? Just curious to find out. hehe..... Btw, hope everything is going well over your side. Adoi, roasted goose! Yours look really iviting and yummilicious. You know, I have to agree with Anncoo. Besides, it's too large & pricy. Even a whole duck already cost about RM80/bird. See what I mean! Hope you're enjoying the day.

  11. @ Kristy: Hahaha you're funny!;). Saya lahir di Indonesia, makanya bisa bahasa Indonesia (dan ngerti bahasa Malay);). We can always get duck or goose quite easily here in Germany during Christmas time, and it's really affordable too, so I guess I am lucky :).
