    A duck recipe that Filipinos love.


    • 1 whole duck, dressed
    • 1 liter Sprite or 7 up
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 5 cloves garlic
    • 3 bay leaves
    • 1 tsp peppercorns, crushed
    • 1/2 cup onion leaves (cut into 1 inch long)
    • lemon grass
    • 1 can pineapple tid bits
    • 2 pcs carrots


    1. Stuff duck with lemon grass.
    2. Mix remaining ingredients in a pot and cook duck over medium heat.
    3. Cook until duck is tender. Simmer until sprite mixture thickens.
    4. You can add a cup of coconut vinegar (Tuba) if you are using Sprite/7 Up and wants your Patotin have a reddish color
    5. You can also use Coke instead of Sprite/7 Up. Don't add Tuba as Coke will already give your dish a redish tint.
    6. Don’t cook over high heat especially towards the last part of cooking. This may make your sauce bitter.
    7. Adjust measurements according to your taste preference
