My friend and I refer to this as the old reliable pork. We are both considered good cooks by our friends and family. The recipe is so easy and can be prepared ahead of time and warmed up, leaving time to visit and share a glass of wine with guests. I've found that the leeks usually require cooking off some of the liquid after the pork is done. I like to serve it with mashed potatoes, a green vegetable and a salad with some kind of apple dessert. I make it for company and for family. They all love it.

This was great! I wrapped to roast in Pancetta which I'm sure contributed to the great flavor, but it also kept the meat nice and mosit. The pancetta was very thin and rendered little fat. If I hadn't used the pancetta I would have at least salt and peppered the roast before searing. The leeks were awesome! We used home grown and my husband gobbled them down. Will definetly make again.

A go to recipe in my house, served with cous cous to soak up the juices or over mashed potatoes. Delicious.

We like this alot. Easy, filling, tasty. I often use boneless pork chops for it. I like it with potatoes more than rice. I use meat from a local organic farmer, my roast comes out a little dry, but that probably has to do with cooking a tad to long. I like the pancetta idea, will have to try that next fall. I also cook off the liquid just a little at the end after taking out the meat.

Such a simple prep but so very good. Only change is that it takes us much longer than 5min to brown a 2lb roast. Have made this several times since it was listed as "best pork recipe" in CL's Sep '07 issue.

This is an "old faithful" recipe. So easy and delicious. My husband and I love the combination of the cooked leeks and pork with mashed potatoes. However, I usually use pork tenderloin. The cooking time is shortened but the result is still delicious!
