Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • 6-8 thinly sliced pancetta slices
  • 2 leeks
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive oil
  • White wine

Directions

  1. In a pan, saute the thinly sliced leeks in a drizzle of warm olive oil. Salt and let cook until they are well caramelized adding a bit of white wine if needed (it will take 15-20 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, salt and pepper the pork loin and wrap it in the pancetta.
  3. When the leeks are well cooked, make room for the tenderloin in the pan by pushing the leeks to the side and sear the tenderloin.
  4. Add half a glass of the white wine and let it evaporate. Then cover and keep cooking for 15-20 minutes turning the tenderloin every 5 minutes or so for even cooking. Add more wine (or a bit of broth) as needed to avoid scorching.
