3 medium sized leeks
½ cup chicken stock
4 Tablespoon butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese for garnish
Wash and rinse the leeks and cut them length wise down the middle
Heat a large skillet and melt the butter
When the butter is melted, add the leeks to the pan, cut side down cook each leek for about 2-3 minutes on each side to develop color, seasoning with salt and pepper.
After the leeks have been browned, add the chicken stock, cover the pan, and let braise for about 10 minutes
Drain the braising liquid and reserve for later use
Plate the braised leeks, add a bit of the stock over the top, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and a bit of the Parmesan cheese.
