Foie gras duck

- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add foie gras and sauté until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove foie gras with a slotted spatula (leaving a little resulting fat covering the bottom of the pan) and transfer to paper towels to drain.
- Add carrots and onions to pan and sauté until golden, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until carrots are just tender, about 5 minutes. Return foie gras to pan and simmer 1 minute more to heat through. Yields about 2 ounces of foie gras and 1 cup of vegetables per serving.
