Quick sauteed leeks

    I really like leeks and I serve them all the time with roast chicken, steak or fish... I never seem to tire of them! This side dish is easy to prepare and is a delicious way to serve leeks.

    This was easy, tasty and great with steak. Just be careful not to have heat too high as the leeks and onions will spoil easily  -  05 Dec 2012
