Ingredients

Weber  Ss  Chris  Stark 312 346X318
  • 4 large leeks
  • For the Sauce:

  • 1 pint/570ml milk
  • 75g mature cheddar, grated
  • a little freshly grated nutmeg
  • 5 tbsp panko breadcrumbs

Instructions

    Radio 1’s Chris Stark’s Cheesy Leeks make the perfect accompaniment to a delicious Sunday roast beef!

    In the kitchen:
    • Wash the leeks well so as to remove any hidden dirt in the leaves.
    • Cut leeks into 3 inch lengths.
    • Simmer in boiling water for around 5 minutes until tender. Then drain and cool.
    • For the sauce, melt the butter then add flour and cook on the hob for one minute. Slowly add the milk bit by bit stirring the mixture allowing it to become thick, smooth and sauce like.
    • Finally add the grated cheese, nutmeg and a little salt and pepper. The sauce should be of a thick consistency.
    At the barbecue:
    • Prepare the barbecue for indirect heat, approx. 200°C.
    • Grill the already cooked leaks over a direct heat allowing them to blister slightly and chargrill. Once they are all cooked remove and add to a foil drip tray or small roasting tray.
    • Cover with the cheese sauce followed by the bread crumbs and cook indirect until bubbling and golden on top.

    Perfect with a Sunday roast. Why not try Chris Stark's recipes for Roast Beef and Yorkshire Puddings.
