Braised Cucumbers with Dill

Posted: Updated:
1 1/2 tbs Unsalted butter
1 Medium leek
3 lbs Tender skinned cucumbers
2 tbs Water or white wine
  Salt
2 tbs Chopped dill
1/2 tsp Brown sugar
3 tbs Sour Cream
In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the leek and cook over moderately low heat, stirring until tender, 4 minutes. Stir in the cucumbers, the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of butter and the water. Season with salt. Cover and cook over moderate heat, stirring a few times, until the cucumbers are crisp-tender, 3 minutes. Uncover and cook over moderately high heat until any liquid has evaporated, about 1 minute. Transfer the cucumbers to a bowl, stir in the dill and serve.
