Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook gnocchi according to package directions; drain well.

  • Meanwhile, trim fat from pork. Slice the pork crosswise into 1/2-inch slices. Place the pork in a small shallow bowl. Drizzle with lime juice and toss to combine. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes. Drain the pork.

  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork. Cook for 2 minutes; turn and cook for about 2 minutes more or until slightly pink in the center (145 degrees F). Remove the pork from skillet; cover with foil and keep warm.

  • Melt butter in the same skillet. Add kale, shallot, garlic, and the cooked gnocchi. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 8 minutes or until the gnocchi is lightly browned and the kale is slightly wilted. Drizzle with honey; toss to combine. Serve with sliced pork. If desired, garnish with lime wedges.
