Pulled Pork and Sour Cream Gnocchi

Recipe Sponsored by Curly's BBQ

It’s hard to find a weeknight dinner that is satisfying but also can be on the table in under a half hour, and in December, I am so busy that this is really what I need most nights. I end up grabbing takeout most of the time out of frustration! Using shortcuts like buying pre made gnocchi and grabbing a package of Curly’s Pulled Pork can really help me make something on the quick. I am already out and about running errands and grabbing these things at the store makes my life easier but still gives me the satisfaction of turning on the stove and making something at home.

I came up with the idea of this pork and gnocchi dish that is almost like a cross between loaded potato and stroganoff flavors. It is hearty and filling for these cold nights, but comes together fast if you have store bought gnocchi.
Cook the mushrooms first and remove from the pan, then the onions next. Add flour to form a roux. The pork goes in next. It adds a nice smoky flavor to the whole dish. I have to confess, all this talk about shortcuts but I made the gnocchi fresh for this dish. I needed gnocchi for about 4 different dishes in the past week so I just made one big batch and used it for everything. Toss the cooked gnocchi in with the pork, onions, and mushrooms. Then add some sour cream and jalapenos. Serve with sour cream and scallions. This is the kind of dish I could sit down and eat and eat until I fall asleep. It really warms you on a cold december night! You can find Curly’s products in the refrigerator case at your local grocery store.
