Cook Time 7 hours
Total Time 7 hours 15 minutes


  • 1 duck (mine was 1.9kg)
  • 1/3 cup honey,
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 300 ml bottle of plum sauce (I used a brand called Beerenberg spicey plum sauce) but use whatever you like the most!
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon


  • I chopped off the neck (optional)
  • Brown both sides of the duck before stuffing it breast side down in your slow cooker (it just fit my 5.5l)
  • Simply mix all the rest of the ingredients and pour it over the top, cook 7hrs on low, every hour baste it in the juices.
  • Once its cooked, take it out and shred the meat.
  • Scoop out some sauce and madly boil it until it thickened it a bit.
  • We then served it on chinese pancakes with fried rice and the sauce.
  • NB: duck is a very oily meat, you will notice a thick layer of oil on top of the sauce you will have to scoop out before you can use it (I used a ladle). it was very delicious but definitely can be substituted for any type of bird, just adjust cooking times to suit the size.
