Yesterday I kicked off my theme of good eating for the New Year. As I mentioned, eating well doesn’t have to take a lot of work; all it requires is a handful of good, fresh ingredients, dedicating time in the kitchen (not a long time I swear) and the promise to yourself to keep eating this way throughout the year.
Let’s take a moment to talk about those fresh ingredients, shall we?
On a busy weeknight one of my favorite go-to ingredients is to pull some pork sausage or a bone-in pork chop out of my freezer, toss it in my skillet with some seasoning and sit down 30 minutes later to a delicious dinner.
Now this is not the pork you grew up with (you know what I’m talking about) – dry and flavorless. No, the pork that gets stocked at my home is Berkshire pork.
Let me tell you a little bit about pasture raised Berkshire pork if you aren’t familiar with it. Berkshire pigs are farm raised in Virginia and are a breed that’s full of heavily marbled fat and a gorgeous pink hue. In this case, fat is not bad; fat = flavor, fat = juiciness, fat is good. It’s your friend!
Perhaps you’ve seen the name on a restaurant near you or in a magazine article – where you can’t find it is in your local grocery store. That doesn’t mean you can’t be deprived of all things delicious and piggy! The folks at Sproutfield have developed relationships with the local farmers of Berkshire pork to deliver this incredible pasture raised meat right to your home. Next time you claim you aren’t a pork fan, try this. I promise, it’ll change your mind.
Plus, they carry everything you need, from sausage, to bacon, to pork chops and boston butt for pulled pork.
Like I said, there’s always some sort of pork product ready to go at home and dinner can get on the table quickly with this sweet potato gnocchi, sausage and cauliflower crumble. I love how the sweetness of the gnocchi plays off the spiciness from the sausage and the crispy bite from your roasted cauliflower.
Plus, save yourself some time and pickup store bought gnocchi. If you can’t find sweet potato, butternut squash or regular potato gnocchi will work just fine. Of course, I don’t blame you if you want to make your own gnocchi but that 30 minute dinner will now be a 2 hour one.
