Gnocchi Poutine with Short Rib Ragu

Gnocchi Poutine with Short Rib Ragu and Gremolatta with Stringy Melted Cheese

While I was enjoying the braised short rib ragu over polenta I remembered seeing a gnocchi poutine with ox tail gravy on a restaurant menu a long time ago that I had wanted to try. Poutine in a Canadian dish from Quebec consisting of french fries topped with cheese curds and a piping hot gravy. Poutine shops across Canada experiment with poutine all the time and one thing that is often done is adding various forms of meat so a poutine with an oxtail gravy, or in this case a braised short rib ragu was not a far stretch. If you can change the topping why not swap one potato product in for another potato product, gnocchi? Luckily the three pounds of short ribs that went into the ragu made for a decent amount of leftovers and I made sure to save the last for this poutine and it was well worth it! The light and fluffy yet chewy potato gnocchi worked really well when covered in melting cheese curds and the oh so tasty braised short rib ragu. You really cannot go wrong adding a stringy melted cheese to an already great dish! I served the gnocchi poutine with short rib ragu with a gremolata topping to keep things nice and bright and fresh.

This looks amazing. Gnocchi is one of those foods that I can never get enough of, as is poutine. I love the combination of cheese curds, gnocchi and ragu. I'll have to try this.

OMG! LOOOOOKS Amazing!!!!

Unknown said...

This may be a dumb question, but in an American grocery store, what would cheese curds be? :)

Kevin said...

Unknown: I believe they are called cheese curds and they would be in the dairy/cheese section. According to the wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheese_curds it might be difficult to find them outside northeastern and midwestern United States. You could replace them with a nice melt-y cheese like cheddar, mozzarella, Colby, or Monterey jack if you cannot find them. You might also want to check with a cheese monger. I know that most of the cheese stores here in Toronto import the cheese curds from Quebec.
