    • 300 grs Chuck Beef , double minced
    • 300 grs Pork shanks , double minced
    • 200 grs Rice , short grain
    • 1 cup fresh Parsley , leaves chopped
    • 1 teaspoon Sweet Smoked Paprika
    • 1 large Yellow Onion , finely diced
    • 50 ml Lemon juice
    • 2 Fresh Tomatoes , grated
    • 12 large Leeks
    • 5 EVOO , (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
    • 30 grs Unsalted Butter
    • 1 tablespoon dry Mint
    • 1 tablespoon Dry Oregano
    • 5 litres lukewarm Water
    • 1 ½ teaspoons Sea Salt
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper


    • In a bowl add the beef and pork minced meat, rice, onion, tomatoes, parsley, paprika, mint, oregano, salt and pepper and we mix well.
    • In a large pot bring water to a boil on high heat.
    • In the meantime, take the leeks and ‘as a surgeon would do’ take a knife lengthwise of the leeks, going so much deep as not to slice them. Wash them well and keep aside.
    • Add the leeks in the boing water and cook for 5 minutes. Take out in a large bowl filled with cold water and ice so that the cooking stops. Strain and dry and keep aside.
    • Start filling each leek leave with the minced meat mixture by placing a spoonful dose of the mixture to the green end of the leeks and then start folding to create a triangle.
    • Any remaining leaves are placed in a large pot and then on top we arrange our stuffed leeks. We then add the oil, lemon and butter and we place a heavy plate on top of them. Add hot water to cover them and cook for one hour, covered with the lid of the pot, on medium heat.
