Cook Time
  • 2 cups assorted vegetablesI used red pepper and brussels sprouts
  • 1pound leftover prime ribcan use steak or left over roast beef as well
  • 1-1/2pounds gnocchifresh, ready to cook
  • hard cheeseto be grated over the skillet once it’s cooked
  1. begin by setting up the water for cooking gnocchi and getting on to a boil
  2. cut the vegetables into a little less than bite sized pieces, repeat with the prime rib
  3. heat a 10 inch skillet over medium high heat, once it’s hot add the vegetables and dry fry them for 1-2 minutes
  4. then add the prime rib and cook and additional 1-2 minutes
  5. remove from the heat or just turn the burner to very low to keep it warm
  6. at this point the water should be merrily boiling away, once it is cook the gnocchi according to cooking instructions-the kind I used are from Costco and cook in 40 seconds
  7. put the skillet back on the heat and turn it up to medium while the gnocchi cook
  8. once the gnocchi are cooked drain well and toss with the prime rib and vegetables in the skillet-you aren’t looking to cook anything at this point so simply tossing to combine is all you need to do
  9. taste for salt and pepper, add if needed
  10. to serve top the hot skillet dinner with fresh grated cheese or simply pass the cheese around the table
Recipe Notes
  • use any kind of vegetable you have or what you like
  • feel free to use leftover cooked vegetables but don’t add them until you heat the prime rib through and you’re letting it rest until you add the gnocchi, that way they’ll be warmed but not soft and limp
  • I use (and like!) Gnocchi from Costco-it always cooks up nicely and the only time I screw it up is when I cook it or longer than it says
