This dish smelled just SO divine while it was cooking and it tasted wonderful. If you love leeks, then this is a recipe that you really must try; and if you're not sure about leeks, give it a try anyway. I don’t recall using leeks and paprika together, but it really was a winning combination. I used sweet paprika, which blended superbly with the other flavours in both the meatballs and the leek mixture. The only changes I made were to add just a couple of cloves of minced garlic to both the meatballs and the leeks, and to add half wine and half water to the leeks in step 12. Thanks Kate for this superbly flavoursome recipe! We ate it with rice and absolutely loved it! Next time I plan to make it with an excellent pork and veal mix that is always available at my butcher’s and to double the recipe, as this recipe will obviously freeze well.
