Believe it or not, one of the very first things I made as a newlywed was gnocchi. I don’t know why I had my heart set on it, but it actually became something I made for fun a few times. Since then, I haven’t made it once, but I always order it in restaurants (duck gnocchi from Mike’s Bistro… yum), and I compare the taste and texture to my original recipe. It’s crazy how you can remember a taste so many years later.

 

I used my original recipe as a starting point in this recipe here, and I kept going till I got the texture that I felt matched the chometz version most closely. Gnocchi has a bad rap in the patchkeh category, but it doesn’t take that long, you get a lot out of this recipe, and it’s such a cost-effective appetizer!

Ingredients

Gnocchi

  • 3 medium russet potatoes, baked, cooled, and peeled

  • egg

  • salt and pepper, to taste

Sauce

Steak

  • cooked chunks of steak or roast, sliced (see note)

Tart shells

  • 24 gluten-free mini pie shells, prepared according to package instructions (optional)

Directions

Prepare the Gnocchi

1.

Set a pot of salted water to a boil.

2.

Mash the potatoes very well.

3.

Gently mix potatoes with the egg, salt, and pepper. Add potato starch slowly, until it’s all incorporated.

4.

Divide the dough into four parts. Roll each part into a stick.

5.

Cut even rounds from each stick, and lightly roll each one with potato starch. If you’d like, you can roll each piece along the tongs of a fork to create a shape that makes it easier for the sauce to adhere to.

6.

Drop a few pieces at a time into the pot of boiling water. When they rise to the top of the pot, remove using a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Prepare the Sauce

1.

Sauté the onions in oil until they’re a rich amber brown.

2.

Add chicken stock, taking care to scrape the brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Allow to simmer down for about five to 10 minutes. 

3.

Then add the wine, seasoning, and meat. Mix well and remove from heat.

Notes:

You can easily use leftover sliced roast chicken for this recipe, or make a simple roast chicken recipe with chicken bottoms, or even better, boneless chicken bottoms. For a simple roast chicken, I do salt, pepper, garlic, honey, and fresh lemon, smothered in sautéed onions. Bake till it falls off the bone, and then cut into pieces.

To Serve

1.

Pour the sauce over the gnocchi.

2.

Place in prepared tart shells for a beautiful presentation.
