- 1 kg minced beef
- 2 large leeks
- 5 cloves
- 1,5 kg floury potatoes, cream and milk to create mashed potatoes
- pepper and salt to taste
Kitchen equipment needed
- cutting board & chef’s knife
- fine sieve + ladle
- large skillet + lid
- wooden spoon
Preparation — 5 minutes
Meanwhile RINSE the leeks with cold running water and chop into large pieces.
Finishing the braised leeks with minced beef — 15 minutes
HEAT butter in the large skillet and ADD the minced beef. COOK until it’s beautifully browned and then ADD the cloves along with the pieces of leek. Place the lid on the skillet and let it cook for about 10 minutes, or until the leeks are softened enough. My grandmother always cooked this dish until the leeks are very mushy, but we prefer the leeks to be a bit less mashed.
SEASON with pepper and salt, REMOVE the cloves and serve with the mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
