Recipe by Annacia
READY IN: 2hrs 30mins




  • Remove roots and tough upper leaves from leeks and cut each leek in half lengthwise.
  • Cut each half crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices (you should have about 6 cups), soak in cold water to loosen dirt.
  • Combine leeks, 1/2 cup water, 1 teaspoon butter, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large Dutch oven or deep sauté pan over medium-high heat.
  • Cook for 10 minutes or until leek wilts, pour the leek mixture into a bowl.
  • Heat remaining 2 teaspoons butter in pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add pork to pan.
  • Cook 5 minutes, turning to brown on all sides.
  • Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and wine to pan; cook 15 seconds, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
  • Return leek mixture to pan.
  • Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 2 hours or until pork is tender.
  • Remove pork from pan and increase heat to reduce leek sauce if too watery.
  • Cut pork into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
  • Serve with leek mixture.
  • Garnish with parsley, if desired.
  • *6 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces pork and about 2 1/2 tablespoons leek mixture).
