Recipe Ingredients for Pan-roasted pork loin with leeks (Cooking Light)

6 cups leeks, chopped
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 lb boneless pork loin
1/2 cup white wine

Recipe Directions for Pan-roasted pork loin with leeks (Cooking Light)

  1. Remove roots and upper leaves from leeks. Cut in half lengthwise; cut each half crosswise into 1/2 in thick slices. Soak in cold water to loosen dirt; rinse and drain.

  2. Heat the sliced leek, 1/2 cup water, 1 tsp butter, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper in large Dutch oven or deep saute pan over medium-high heat. Cook for 10 mins or until leek was wilted. Pour into a bowl.

  3. Heat 2 tsp butter in pan over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook 5 minutes, browning on all sides. Add 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, and wine; 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; increase heat to reduce leek sauce if it's too watery.

  4. Yield: 4 servings (3 oz pork and 1/4 leek mixture)
