This was fantastic. I have a boat load of leeks this year so am really looking for some recipes. I made as directed,however, was rushed so I added everything to the pan at once and simmered the leeks until the sauce reduced, resulting in a nice glossy coat on the leeks. Thank you for an easy and healthy recipe!

I just discovered this leek recipe and made it for visitors last night exactly as written. They loved the results and so did we. We eat a lot of leeks and will be using this recipe often. Thank you for posting it...

We have many huge leeks in our veggie patch at the moment, so this recipe was a perfect opportunity to put them to good use.
We served them with our dinner of grilled salmon, mashed potato & corn on the cob.
I'm sure this will be finding its way to our table again really soon.

These were delicious! My leeks weren't terribly large, so I reduced the butter to 2 tbsp. I used home-dried thyme and homemade chicken broth. I added 1 tbsp of cider vinegar with the broth. When the leeks were cooked, I uncovered and reduced the sauce to just a couple of tablespoons. I added another tablespoon of cider vinegar and another tablespoon of butter, then swirled to combine. These were so good, my sister wouldn't let me take the leftovers home!

I'm new to cooking with leeks. I don't know if you're supposed to use the dark outer portion, but I used the whole thing. I didn't have chicken stock so I used chicked broth instead. It was rather bland. Next time I think I will try and use water with chicken bouillon cube or broth with a cube. I also think I will add a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar for a little kick!

I've never had leeks before except in a soup where you couldn't really distinguish their taste. So decided to try this recipe and was surprised and happy with this dish. I'll be making this again.

Yum! Had some leeks I needed to get rid of and looked for a recipe that had "pantry" ingredients. This recipe hit the spot! Used fresh thyme (it was in my garden). My husband and I ate the whole thing. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Delicious! I used these for the leek filling of Welsh Leek Pie #230294. It was perfect. Then I (unintentionally:-)) finished them off, a little at a time, as I fixed the rest of dinner. They go on my list as a frequent vegetable dish!

This was the first time I'd ever eaten a Leek and I must say it was pretty good. I kept the recipe as is and will make it again.
