Turkish stewed leeks. It is fine if you need to cut up the leeks to fit them in your pan.

Top Review by Engrossed

This was a VERY NICE dish. I made a half recipe. Trimmed and cut in half they fit in my medium pot perfectly. I had never had leeks not sliced up before. They were visually appealing but hard to cut after they were cooked so we had to peel off layers and eat them kinda like greens. The dill is a nice flavor enhancer. This was good with fish. Made for NAME tag.
