Delicious Canadian Poutine



Poutine Gravy:

3 Tbsp cornstarch

2 Tbsp water

6 Tbsp unsalted butter

1/4 cup all purpose flour

20 oz beef broth

10 oz chicken broth

Pepper, to taste



Deep Fried Chips:

2lbs Russet potatoes

Frying oil



1-1/2 cups white cheddar cheese curds (or turn chunks of mozzarella cheese would be the closest substitution)



Prepare the gravy: In a small bowl, dissolve  the cornstarch in the water and set aside.

In a large saucepan , melt the butter.  Add the flour and cook, stirring regularly, 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 the cornstarch and simmer for 3-5mins or until the sauce thickens. Season with pepper. Taste and add additional salt, if necessary to taste. Make ahead and re-warm or keep warm until your chips are ready.

For deep fried chips, prepare 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. When ready to cook , heat your oil in your deep fryer pan or large, wide, heavy cooking pot until it reaches the temperature to 300’f.

Remove the potatoes from the water and place onto a sheet of paper towel. Blot to remove as much excess moisture as possible.

Add your fries to the oil and cook for 5-8mins, just until the 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′. Once oil is heated to that temperature, return the potatoes to the fryer and cook until golden brown. Remove to a paper towel-lined bowl.

To prepare poutine: add your fried chips to a large bowel. Season lightly with salt. Add a ladle of the gravy to the bowl and toss the chips.

Add the cheese curds and toss again. Serve with freshly ground pepper.
