First you get some gnocchi and boil it til it starts floating to the top of the water, have a saute' pan ready with melted butter and toss the gnocchi into it and keep cooking until golden brown
For the brown gravy I cooked 2 steaks in a stainless steel skillet, remove the steaks from the pan and keep warm in the oven. With the meat drippings left in the pan deglaze the pan with a good red wine. I added the smoked slab bacon bits and a brown gravy mix that I bought at the German grocery store. Cook for about 5 minutes, add some rosemarin and parsley.
Dish up the brown gnocchi and steak, cover in the gravy with bacon. I leave some extra gravy out and gave a quick saute' to my saurkraut.
Perfect Franconian dinner!
Hope you can try this meal sometime... it's a bit heavy but thoroughly enjoyable!!!
