leeks onto the web

two pieces of advice about leeks: buy leeks that are uniformly cylindrical through the white part...if they bulge at the end, they're old and will be tough. and, don't bother trying to get all the dirt out before you chop them up. slice them up however you want and then rinse. worlds easier.
these leeks went into a pan with grated ginger, toasted sesame oil, and freshly ground pepper. i kept this over low heat for about ten minutes. then when i put the tuna on (see below), i covered the leeks and removed from the heat. served the tuna on a bed of leeks and rice. big hit all around.
