D’Artagnan

Ingredients

  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced
  • 3/4 Cups balsamic vinegar
  • 1 package foie gras slices
  • 1 brioche bun, sliced
  • Arugula, for serving

Directions

Sweat the apple in butter and 1 tablespoon sugar for approximately 15 minutes. Purée, then strain and keep warm.

Simmer the onion with 1 tablespoon sugar and the balsamic vinegar for about 20 minutes, scraping the bottom of the pan constantly. Keep warm.

Toast the two brioche halves, then spread the apple compote on the bottom piece.

Sear the foie gras slices and pat dry with paper towel. Put the foie gras on top of the apple compote. Spoon onion marmalade on top. Top with bun. Served immediately with arugula dressed with olive oil, salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Foie Gras Shopping Tip

When shopping for offal, the meat should be moist, have an even color and texture, and should not have an excessively strong odor.

Foie Gras Cooking Tip

Offal does not keep for long periods of time. Ideally, you should plan on using it right away.
