SS: Fried Gnocchi with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Pork–The BEST Recipe Ever

Fried Gnocchi with Goat Cheese News Anchor To Homemaker

This is truly the BEST recipe I’ve ever made…how could it not be?  It’s fried gnocchi topped with balsamic pork and crumbled goat cheese.  This is really an explosion of flavors.   I got the idea from one of the very first restaurants we went to in Las Vegas called Comme Ca.  Although I would not consider this to be a week night meal, it really isn’t difficult.  The gnocchi is store bought that I boiled, breaded and then fried. 

This recipe took me two tries to master.  The first attempt, I tried to short cut it and did not boil the gnocchi before frying–too chewy.  I also didn’t add enough brown sugar into the balsamic vinegar–too vinegary.

This time is it was just right.  Andy and I didn’t talk the whole meal…that NEVER happens.  This is perfect for company or Sabbath Sunday, of course.

Flour, Small Plate Full

Milk, Small Bowl Full

Olive Oil, To Coat Pan…Plus a little extra

Fresh Goat Cheese, 1-2 Logs

Parsley, To Garnish


Boil the Gnocchi for about 4 minutes. When Gnocchi starts floating, it’s done.  Drain and let cool for about 2 minutes.  Set up an assembly line of: flour, milk and bread crumbs. Roll each piece of Gnocchi in the flour, then milk, then bread crumbs.  When all the gnocchi is breaded, cook in a large pan coated with olive oil for about 3 minutes on both sides.  Remove Gnocchi and Place on Paper town  to drain slightly. Place on plate.  Top with pulled pork and extra juices from pork.  Top that with goat cheese and garnish with parsley.  You will not be disappointed!
