- 1 13-pound goose (thawed if frozen); neck, heart, gizzard, and wing tips reserved for stock
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon dried savory
- 3 14-ounce cans low-salt chicken broth
- 1 carrot, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 3 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 3 fresh Italian parsley sprigs
- Reserved goose neck (cut into 3-inch pieces), heart, gizzard, and wing tips
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons tawny Port
- 1/3 cup all purpose flour
Position oven rack in bottom third of oven and preheat to 425°F. Remove excess fat and skin from main body cavity and neck cavity. Pierce goose with sharp fork, especially where fat is thickest on legs and lower breast. Sprinkle cavities and skin with salt and pepper. Tie legs together to hold shape. Place goose, breast side down, on V-shaped rack set in roasting pan. Add enough water to pan to reach depth of 1/2 inch. Roast 40 minutes. Spoon off fat from surface of liquid in pan; reserve 1/4 cup fat.
Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Using tongs as aid, turn goose onto 1 side. Roast 30 minutes. Turn goose onto second side. Roast 30 minutes.
Whisk mustard, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, and savory in small bowl to blend. Turn goose breast side up. Brush goose with mustard-garlic mixture. Roast until meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh registers 175°F and juices run clear when thigh is pierced with fork, about 50 minutes. Transfer goose to platter; tent loosely with foil to keep warm. Reserve pan juices.
Meanwhile, prepare stock
Bring all ingredients to boil in large saucepan. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, until reduced to 3 cups, occasionally skimming surface, about 1 hour. Strain stock into bowl; spoon off fat.
Spoon off fat from top of reserved juices in roasting pan. Add 1/2 cup Port to pan. Place roasting pan atop 2 burners and boil until mixture is reduced to 1 cup, whisking occasionally, about 5 minutes. Whisk flour and reserved 1/4 cup fat in medium saucepan over medium-low heat until roux is light brown, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk in Port mixture and 2 1/2 cups degreased stock. Simmer until gravy thickens enough to coat spoon, whisking constantly, about 3 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons Port. Season with salt and pepper. Carve goose and serve with gravy.
Rare beef with mustard Yorkshires
Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Using a large pestle and mortar, grind the garlic, thyme, peppercorns, mustard, anchovies and olive oil to a paste. Rub the mixture all over the beef and put in a large roasting tin. Roast for 25 mins, then turn down the oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3. Remove the pan from the oven, add the potatoes and toss in the fat, adding 4 tbsp sunflower oil. Return to the oven for another 90 mins for rare 2 hrs for medium rare.
Meanwhile, make the Yorkshires. Make the milk up to 225ml/8fl oz with water. Beat the eggs, egg white, mustard and milk together, then gradually add the flour and ¼ tsp salt – the batter should be the consistency of thin double cream. Pour into a jug. Take the meat out of the oven, cover and leave to rest, then turn the oven up to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7.
Put 1 tbsp goose fat or oil in each of 8 large Yorkshire pudding tins and heat for 15 mins in the oven, with the potatoes on a lower shelf. Pour the batter into the tins, then cook for 15-20 mins, without opening the oven, until risen and golden. Serve with horseradish, gravy and your favourite veg.
DON'T LIKE IT RARE?
The timing below is for rare beef, so add an extra 5-10 minutes per kilo if you like medium.
Once the meat and potatoes are out of the tin, pour off the oil, leaving behind the juices. Put the tin on the hob, then heat and stir with a glug of red wine to remove the sediment from the pan (don’t add too much or the gravy will be murky). Pour in 450ml beef stock and simmer to boil off the alcohol from the wine. Re-skim to remove excess oil, then strain into a gravy boat to serve.

Holiday Goose Recipes that Deliver
Secret #1: Goose is stronger tasting than any wild duck (it's like roast beef texture), so I marinate the goose in buttermilk (or milk) for 24 hours in the refrigerator before cooking.
If you want to marinate the goose in a "flavored marinade," (like orange or savory, etc.) rinse all of the buttermilk from the bird and marinate your bird again.
You know that a turkey (domestic or wild) needs to be basted in fat to stay moist - but the goose is just the opposite. The rendered fat that accumulates on the bottom of a roasting pan needs to be discarded.
S ecret #2: PRICK JUST THE SKIN AND THE UNDERLYING FAT OF THE GOOSE with a fork or a needle do not prick the meat. If you can, pull out any pads of fat before cooking.
Secret #3: BOIL 1 cup of water and pour over the goose before seasoning it and placing it in the oven, and midway through baking, to melt the fat. It will crisp the skin and prevent the goose fat in the roaster to catch on fire.
This wild goose recipe is wonderful because you can prepare it before you go to work and it's ready when you come home.

Goose-fat potatoes with garlic and rosemary
I served these potatoes and the accompanying chicken, crisp and golden, with a salad of lettuce and watercress. The leaves needed no dressing. We tossed them in the warm, seasoned fat on our plates. Serves 3.
large potatoes 4
garlic 6 cloves
rosemary sprigs 2
goose fat 6 tbsp
chicken thighs 6 large
Peel the potatoes, cut each into 4-6 pieces then bring to the boil in a pan of deep, salted water and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain and cool under running water, then leave to cool. (This will help achieve a crisp crust later.) Set the oven at 200C/gas mark 6. Peel the garlic. Strip most of the rosemary needles from their stalks and roughly chop them.
In a large, shallow casserole or roasting tin, warm the goose fat over a medium heat, then add the chicken thighs, let them brown then remove and reserve. Add the cooled potatoes to the pan, then turn them in the warm fat, adding the rosemary needles and reserved stems. Bake for 20 minutes, then add the browned chicken, tucking it among the potatoes. Add the garlic cloves and a seasoning of salt. Shuffle the contents of the pan around until all is glossy with fat, then roast for an hour or until the wings and potatoes are golden.
Serve, with extra sea salt and a crisp, green lettuce and watercress salad, void of any dressing.

27 comments on &ldquoStanding Rib Roast&rdquo
So I found this because I wanted to try using bacon grease in place of saffron oil in a recipe that has become my go-to for standing rib roast by Chef A. Brown. So I’ve combined/fused some of your ideas with his, mainly the aforementioned bacon fat as well as the garlic and mustard. BUT I still stick with his method of starting with a COLD oven, cooking at 250 F. first, then removing from the oven to COOL before going on to brown/char the outside in a 500 F oven. From my experience this slower method of cooking gives your roast a more tender texture, something about long and slow just seems to work better for me. If you haven’t tried it I highly recommend giving it a whirl, and also if you’ve not tried a Yorkshire pudding (which is what you make from the drippings while the roast is cooling before that final step) it really is amazing, and far simpler than I’d ever imagined.
But I do thank you for your work, it helped me to add a nice touch which has taken my rib roast to another level ?)
This was my first try at a Standing Rib Roast and it was delicious. Definitely a holiday tradition in my house from now on!
Had some folks for dinner who’ve had this before and they raved about the bacon grease marinade. Thanks for the recipe.
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 ½ pounds (1.44 kg) boneless pork loin
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) dry white wine
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon dired dill
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/3 cup (80 ml) heavy (double) cream
- 4 shallots, washed, peeled, and halved
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Melt butter in olive oil in an electric instant pot turned to the sauté mode. Add pork loin and brown on all sides, turning occasionally (for about 6 minutes). Using tongs, transfer to a large plate.
Add shallots to pressure cooker. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned (for about 5 minutes). Pour in dry white wine, scraping up any browned bits in the pot as it comes to simmer.
Pour in chicken broth. Stir in mustard, dill and black pepper. Place browned meat with accumulated juices in the sauce.
Close the pressure cooker and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 22 minutes.
Open pressure cooker, using Quick Release method. Using tongs, transfer cooked pork loin to a cutting board. Cool for 5 minutes. Place the lid loosely on the cooker to keep sauce warm. Slice the meat.
Stir in heavy cream into the sauce in the pressure cooker. Cook, stirring, over low heat for a further 30 seconds. Turn off the pressure cooker. Pour sauce over the cooked pork loin. Serve warm.
How to prepare a whole duck for roasting
Step-by-step photos and instructions start here (the complete recipe without photos is at the bottom of this post). I recommend that you read and look through these photos and then scroll down to the recipe box itself for more condensed version of the recipe (without photos).
If using frozen duck, make sure it’s completely defrosted (defrosted in the refrigerator for a couple of days). Remove the giblets from inside the duck. Rinse the duck, inside and outside, with cold water. Pat dry with paper towels:
Set the duck on the working surface. Score the duck’s skin on the breast side in a diamond pattern, making sure you only cut the skin, without reaching the meat. The 2 deep cuts to the right of the photos is the example of how NOT TO SCORE, but it’s still OK, as I did not cut through the meat but did reach the meat in those 2 cuts on the right:
The duck breast should be scored in a diamond pattern:
This is what the duck should look like, breast side up, scored (see 2 deep scores on the right – try not to do that but it’s OK as long as you don’t cut into the meat itself):
Poke the other fatty parts of the duck with the tip of the knife all over, to ensure fat release, especially in very fatty parts. You don’t need to poke the duck legs as the skin is pretty thin there (except for where the duck legs connect to the duck body).
Season the duck very generously with salt both inside the cavity of the duck and outside on the skin, legs, all over.
Put 5 chopped garlic cloves and lemon slices inside the duck cavity (these are just for flavor, not for eating – you will discard them after cooking).
The duck will have flapping skin on both ends – fold that skin inwards, to hold the garlic and lemon inside.
Tie the duck legs with butcher’s twine or butcher’s string (or, in my case, I just used folded aluminum foil to tie up the duck legs, because I forgot to get butcher’s twine):
Place the bird breast side up on a large roasting pan with a rack (roasting pan should have a roasting rack to lift the duck from the bottom of the pan and allow the fat to drip below the duck).

vegetable oil 1 tsp
carrots 2 chopped
onions 2 chopped
bay leaves 2
small bunch thyme 1
red wine 500ml
chicken stock 1 litre
salsify 8 pieces

Preheat the oven to 190C/gas mark 5. Trim any excess fat from the goose. Season inside and out. Put the bird in a large roasting tray and roast in the oven for about 3 hours, basting regularly.
Meanwhile make the jus. Warm the vegetable oil in a pan over a high heat. Add the carrots and cook until tender and caramelised, add the onions, cook until soft and add the herbs. Pour in the wine and reduce to a third, add the chicken stock and reduce again to half, set aside for later.
Peel the salsify and cut into bite-sized pieces, place in a bowl of cold water with a squeeze of lemon to stop them browning. Place the salsify in a pan of cold water, bring to the boil and blanch for a few minutes, drain. Add to the roasting pan with the goose for the last 15 minutes of cooking.
When the goose is cooked, remove from the oven, place on a large plate with the salsify and rest for 10 minutes. Remove the fat from the roasting tray, save to roast your potatoes another day. Place the roasting tray on a high heat add the jus, first sieving through a fine sieve.
Stir well and simmer until all the juices are incorporated, and check the seasoning.
Chinese Roast Goose Recipe
A couple months ago I was given 3 frozen geese by the local food bank to try and come up with recipes on how to cook them. The geese were donated by a grocery store, but no one wanted to take them because very few people (myself included) know how to cook a goose. I began putting the word out on twitter and emailing friends, and it was my Chinese auntie’s recipe that ended up being the most cost effective and easiest to make.
I was really surprised at how cheap the goose was. It’s price tag put it at only $1 a pound! This nine pound goose was only $9, and fed us for several meals. It also made more than a pint of rendered goose fat, which I think made me more excited than the goose itself!
Geese are very fatty, but that’s a good thing. Goose fat is the healthiest animal fat after fish. It’s much healthier than lard and makes some crazy good roasted potatoes. I plan to try some in a pie crust next to make a savory pot pie.
I’ll do a separate post sometime on rendering fat, but basically it’s just simmering fat in water to melt it until all the water evaporates and you’re left with beautiful golden oil. Once it cools it looks a little like Crisco or lard, and it tastes oh so good.
I also used the neck and giblets to make an easy gravy. It’s great poured over the goose meat, and I had over a pint of gravy so had lots leftover for mashed potatoes over the next couple of weeks.
If you don’t have the Chinese ingredients that are staples in my kitchen, you can substitute a white wine for the Shaoxing wine and a cheap balsamic vinegar for the Chinese black vinegar. If you have an Asian grocery store near you, I highly recommend getting the Chinese ingredients, they’re really good AND far cheaper than their American substitutions if bought in an ethnic store.
The recipe looks long, but includes the gravy. Don’t be intimidated! Next week I’ll give you an easy Vietnamese soup recipe for the leftover meat.
