Pork with mustard and leek puree


  • 800 grams – 1 kilogram of pork (thigh, boneless) in big pieces
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • ½ cup mustard with seeds
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 cup white, dry wine
  • 1 tablespoon mixed bbq spices (bbq mixture)
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • Salt and pepper

Leek puree:

  • 4 large leeks, cleaned and cut into thin slices
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper


Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a broad, stewed pot and sauté the onion until it withers. Add the pork and roast it until it is brown on all sides. Then, pour in the wine, the barbecue spices and the mustard and stir well.

Step 2

Lower the heat and allow the food to simmer until 1/3 of its fluids remain. Add the cream, salt and pepper until the sauce ties.

Step 3

In the meantime, prepare the leek puree: Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and sauté the leeks, stirring them often until they wilt well without getting any color. Empty them in the blender or food processor and mix them until they become a puree. Return them to the pot and stir them to make a smooth mix. Add the cream and continue shaking until the mixture binds. Add salt and pepper and stir in the cumin. Serve the pork with the sauce and accompany it with the leek puree.
