Canadian Poutine Recipe
Poutine is a classic Quebequois Canadian dish consisting of fries, fresh cheese curds, and gravy. It’s fairly newish, created in the 50s.
It’s insanely popular in Canada and is pretty much known around the world as a classic Canadian snack food
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
20 oz beef broth
10 oz chicken broth
Pepper, to taste
For Deep Fried Fries:
3-4 medium potatoes
Peanut or other frying oil
1 – 1 1/2 cups white cheddar cheese curds
DIRECTIONS ON CANADIAN POUTINE RECIPE
Prepare the gravy:
Dissolve the cornstarch in the water in a bowl and set aside.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Add the flour and cook, stirring for about 5 minutes, until the mixture turns golden brown.
Add the beef and chicken broth and bring to a boil, stirring with a whisk.
Stir in about HALF the cornstarch mixture and simmer for a minute or so. (If you’d like your gravy thicker, add a more of the cornstarch mixture)
Season with pepper. Taste and adjust salt, to taste.
For Deep-Fried Fries:
Peel your potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch thick sticks.
Place into a large bowl and cover completely with cold water. Allow to stand at least one hour or several hours. When ready to cook, heat your oil in your deep fryer or large, wide, heavy cooking pot to 300° F.
Remove the potatoes from the water and place onto a sheet of paper towel. Pat to remove as much excess moisture.
Add your fries to the 300°F oil and cook for 5-8 minutes, just until potatoes are starting to cook but are not yet browned.
Remove potatoes from oil and scatter on a wire rack. Increase oil temperature to 375°F Once oil is heated to that temperature, return the potatoes to the fryer and cook until potatoes are golden brown.
Remove to a paper towel-lined bowl.
To Prepare Poutine:
Add your fried or baked fries to a large, clean bowl. Season lightly with salt while still warm. Add a ladle of hot poutine gravy to the bowl and using tongs, toss the fries in the gravy. Add more gravy, as needed to mostly coat the fries.
Add the cheese curds and toss with the hot fries and gravy. Serve with freshly ground pepper. Serve immediately.
