Beijing roast duck is No.1 in the roast duck world, but The price is too expensive, not suitable for the general public. Fortunately, there are many cheap roast duck restaurants on the street, one is only 18 yuan, and the more expensive one is 28 yuan. The taste is also good. They also give away burritos, cucumber shreds, green onions, and sweet noodle sauce. It is very cost-effective. I guess many people will eat it often. .
Sometimes, when I eat roast duck, I think about a question. I usually make beer duck, and it costs 60 yuan to buy a live duck in the vegetable market It costs more, why is it only sold for 18 yuan after being processed into roast duck? What kind of duck is this? Can you eat with confidence?
Later, I found out about this after I consulted my friends who are catering Today I will tell you about the doorway. Friends who like to eat roast duck may wish to take a look with me. After reading it, you will know whether you can eat it.
Why is street roast duck so cheap?
Cost of raw materials
18 yuan a roast duck , Instead of live ducks, dead ducks are used, usually frozen white striped ducks. Live ducks are removed from the internal organs, duck feet and other parts in the processing factory. You must know that duck intestines, duck feet, duck gizzards and other parts can be sold to delicatessens, which is a considerable income, so the cost of white striped ducks is very low.
And the white striped duck is frozen, with a shelf life of up to 12 months , The roast duck eaten today may have been slaughtered a few months ago, which is also one of the reasons for the low price. Generally, the cost of a white duck is about 10 yuan.
Cost of farming
Are these ducks real ducks ? The answer is yes, they all come from farms, and the ducks in the vegetable market are all raised by farmers. The cost of large-scale breeding is naturally much lower than that of small-scale breeding.
For the duck species in other farms, use The most popular is the white-feathered meat duck, which has a very short growth cycle and can be slaughtered in only 42 days. Its weight grows to 3.5 kg, which is very competitive. Many people will wonder whether the duck that grows so fast has been given hormones? You can rest assured that the white-feathered meat duck is a “new breed” bred after 6 years of research. It is characterized by fast growth and high feed conversion rate.
The processing cost of roast duck is very low , each processing cost is about 5 yuan, and the “duck oil” that drips every time it is roasted can also be recycled and used as seasoning oil, industrial oil, and combustion oil, which is not a small fortune income.
In summary , the roast duck on the street is cheap, mainly because the cost is low, so even if it only sells for 18 yuan, each roast duck can earn a few dollars, and the profit is still relatively high.
Because the white striped duck has been frozen for a long time, the meat is not as tender as the fresh one. It is not suitable for frying or stewing, but it is more suitable for roast duck. It is marinated with various seasonings and roasted until cooked. The skin is crispy and the meat is tender, and it is very tasty. However, the salt and fat of roast duck are relatively high, so you can eat it, but it is not recommended to eat it every day.
When buying roast duck on the street, you should choose a store that is clean and tidy, with a relatively large flow of people. The hygiene is guaranteed, and it is relatively fresh, and there are fewer leftovers. In addition , You should eat the roast duck you bought home immediately, and don’t leave it for too long, so as not to affect the taste. If you can’t finish the roast duck, you should put it in the refrigerator for storage, but not more than 24 hours.
