Hi all,
We are thinking about getting muscovy ducks sometime. But my mom was wondering what it tastes like and if it is tough before she'll say yes or no. So if any of you eat duck could you let me know?

Thanks! (In advance
)

It tastes like steak. It's only tough if you cook it that way. At least when I cooked it it wasn't tough. I actually liked it better then our meat chickens
We didn't pluck, just skinned.

Quote:I agree 100%, we haven't found a way to cook it yet that isn't great! It's real good in a stir fry.

Yup, steak! We actually cooked ours in the crockpot with barbeque sauce, and we had a lot of people who wouldnot be convinced it wasnt beef!

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think muscovy is a lot leaner then mallard type ducks.

Thank you all. This is just what I was looking for.

I also found another thread last night about muscovy meat - it was saying that muscovy tastes like lean beef. (In my opinion, (don't know about my mom) I think getting some muscovies would be great... we like beef, but it's pretty expensive.)

Hopefully (
) Mom will say we can. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.....

I never really thought it tasted like beef....but then I am freaky sensitive to subtle taste differences. To me it doesn't taste like any other meat. Duck is probably my favorite meat. I certainly haven't noticed a liver like taste or I wouldn't like it at all. It is YUMMY!!!!!
