Gnocchi & Kumquats ....."challenge" dec

Gnocchi,beets,flank steak and what !!! kumquats....I've been to different store's and special store's,looking for kumquats!!! What a "challenge" everywhere I came and ask for kumquats...kumwhat !! Sorry we don't have "that"... Damn now what.... nothing....yeah sorry..This is a challenge I could win...The beets..,same shitty story,could find "fresh" beets,now I used a semi fresh beets package.
Ha now we're on the right track,The gnocchi is fresh homemade!!

Use 4 potato's and cook them done.Peel off the skin and crush them in a bowl,add 100gr flour and 3 egg yolk's. Mix very well.
Make a few roll's of the mass,and cut in piece's from 2cm. In the meantime,boil some water.Put the gnocchi in the boiled water until they float.Don't forget to heat up the beets too.

The flank steak was a perfect piece, I want it pure,only a pinch of fresh sea salt and some pepper.Heat up the Weber for direct grilling,make sure the grate's are very hot. Allow a longer grilling time because it is freezing outside..(-4).

We also had cooking pear's with it. they were absolutely fabulous..

  1. Not that misery loves company, but I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only one challenged by just getting the ingredients. Great use of the ingredients and fantastic looking results!

  2. That is a great looking hearty plate and those beautiful poached pears were a great substitute for kumquats. Next time you can pick a fruit that we can't find in the U.S.

  3. I would have enjoyed that dinner as well, nicely done. Kumwhats?

  4. Excellent! Nice job overcoming the challenges you faced.
