We’ve been on our annual Canoe Journey this past weekend. Our family canoe is paddling with dozens of others to Seattle. The Muckleshoot Tribe is hosting this summer. I’ll be honest and say, I haven’t been to the grocery store much and my fresh fruit and vegetable drawers in my fridge are kind of bare this week.
My Little Man and I took a day off from Canoe Journey – it was a 10-12 hour canoe pull yesterday and I just didn’t feel like having him on the boat that long. So for lunch I scoured the fridge, freezer and pantry and came up with a dish I knew we’d both love: Mock Duck Yellow Curry.
Mock Duck Yellow Curry
What I love about yellow curry and Asian food in general is the ability to through any ingredients you have into a pan and cook them together. I didn’t have much this week in terms of fresh vegetables to cook, but I did have potatoes. I don’t know about you but I love how long potatoes stay good. They are so reliably wonderful. Thankfully, I had a bag of frozen stir-fry, a can of mock duck, and a bottle of yellow curry simmering sauce. Of course, this dish tastes great with fresh vegetables, tofu, and your own curry spices and coconut milk – unfortunately I didn’t have all that.
- 3 small red potatoes, diced
- 2 cups stir fry vegetables
- 1 can of mock duck
- 1/2 jar of yellow curry simmering sauce
I love that Tasteful Selections potatoes boil up so quickly. Ten minutes and they are done. While they potatoes are boiling I started the frozen stir fry vegetables over med-high heat. This really is a quick recipe and one that the whole family loves.
One potatoes are boiled mix with stir fry and add mock duck.
Top with yellow curry simmering sauce. Mix together and let simmer for a few minutes.

That looks good and so easy! Red potatoes are my favorite. Thanks for the recipe!
I am a huge fan of red potatoes too, Dana! They are so so good!
Okay, I’m not sure I could handle the mock duck 🙂 But I do love a good curry. I’ll have to try this, maybe with chicken!
Ha! Of course most people wouldn’t want a vegetarian duck alternative. It is actually just wheat gluten steaks. Which are easy to also make homemade. But yes, you could easily add chicken to this one 😉

I love curry so this recipe looked so good, I am due to make it this coming weekend. I thank you for the share.
Don’t forget to check out those fast cooking potatoes!
What brand of curry sauce do you use? I’m curious as to how much oil/fat and dairy type ingredients are in it. The curry looks promising as a backpacking food, but fats and dairy products don’t dehydrate well/keep well on the trail. Thanks.
Tracee – this was a simmering sauce made by Trader Joes. It was only $2.99 and I only used half the jar.

I have been wanting to try a good Curry Sauce and this looks like it would satisfy me! Looks fairly simple, too!

I too, love how long red (and gold) potatoes stay fresh. I usually have some in the pantry myself. I have never heard of mock duck…how cool is that!?! My husband would love this dish. Not sure if I can find mock duck, but I will try. Thank you for the lovely recipe.

I’ve never seen mock duck in my area. I’m going to try this with canned chicken to see how it turns out.
I’ve only had duck once at a restaurant, and I’ve never heard of mock duck. I must look for it, this looks delish!
