1/4 Photos of Simmered Leeks
This is my favorite way to prepare leeks. You can eat it by itself or use as a topping for steak, chicken, or fish, and you can also add sliced mushrooms! Either way, it's a delicious addition to dinner. (The companion recipe to this one is Simmered Cabbage - or you can add cabbage to this recipe to combine them!)
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Carefully clean leeks; cut off the stemmy bottoms and the dark green leaves, so you end up with with white and light green parts only (dirt can get in between the leaves, so wash them out well).
- 2Cut leeks lengthwise in quarters, then into about 1-inch squares.
- 3Heat oil in heavy wide saucepan or saute pan; add leeks, salt, pepper, and stir over low heat for 5 minutes.
- 4Add broth and bring to boil, cover and simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often, for about 10 to 15 minutes or until leeks are tender.
- 5Raise heat to medium, uncover and let juices reduce to about half.
- 6Be careful not to let burn.
- 7Taste and adjust seasoning, serve hot.
- 8Makes about 2-4 servings, depending on what you're using them for.
