    1. 1
      Thinly slice leeks. Use white and light green parts of leeks. Separate rings and place in colander. Rinse well and drain well. Try to get leeks as dry as possible.
    2. 2
      Heat olive oil and butter on med-high in frying pan large enough for all the leeks. Remember that they will wilt down!
    3. 3
      Add leeks to frying pan. Stir until all the leeks are coated with oil and butter. At this time, add tarragon, coriander and salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Reduce heat to medium.
    5. 5
      Stirring frequently, cook until leeks are close to caramelized, approximately 25 minutes.
    6. 6
      Serve and enjoy.

      These are lovely. I followed instructions as listed with tasty results. These paired very well with breaded pork chops. Thanks for sharing a recipe I will be making again!

      The leeks have a nice taste and I let them caramelized a little bit. I used only tarragon cause I didn't have ground coriander. It would be great to add onion or shallots to the leeks. Thanks AuntSana :) Made for PRMR tag game
