Leeks en Cocote

Ingredients

  • 8 leeks, white and pale-green parts only
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 pound thick-cut bacon, sliced crosswise 1/4 " thick
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Preparation

Slice each leek in half lengthwise without cutting all the way through the other side; rinse under cold water (gently opening layers) until water runs clear. Pat dry.

Heat oil in a large skillet with a lid over medium-high heat. Add shallot and bacon and cook, stirring, until bacon is crisp, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and leeks, season with salt and pepper, and cook, occasionally turning leeks and stirring gently, until leeks are bright green, about 5 minutes.

Add wine to skillet; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Add broth; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, partially covered, until leeks are just tender, 8–10 minutes longer. Mix in butter. Serve leeks topped with chives.
