Preparation – 20 minutes

Make sure to get the duck legs out of the refrigerator in advance. Season the legs with pepper and salt on all sides. Heat a large skillet on high heat and cook them on all sides until they're golden brown.

It's not necessary to add any extra butter or oil, the duck fat will melt during baking. Transfer the duck legs to the slow cooker. Peel the onion and garlic cloves, divide the onion into thin half rings and finely chop the garlic.

Shortly sauté the onion rings in the large skillet and add a bit of the pomegranate juice to the pan to collect all the flavours.

Pour the onion rings with the tasteful pomegranate into the slow cooker.
