Description

Poutine is a classic Canadian dish hailing from the province of Quebec. Poutine typically features a bed of thick potato fries covered in a gravy and cheese curds on top. This recipe puts a slight twist on the traditional recipe, substituting mozzarella cheese instead of cheese curds. However, the classic gravy is still present and absolutely delicious. Crispy fries, lightly fried to perfection, are at the base of this savory snack.

Ingredients

5 potatoes (washed, peeled, and cut into 1-cm. thick strips)
vegetable oil (for frying)
mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
500 milliliters chicken stock
1 tablespoon beef broth (optional)

Directions

1Heat up the stock and set it aside.
2In a pot, melt the butter and whisk in the flour until there are no more lumps.
3Add the hot stock, whisking constantly. Simmer lightly for 5 minutes until the sauce reduces and thickens. Add the beef juice (optional).
4Heat up the oil in a frying pan and fry the potatoes in batches until golden and crispy.
5Before the last batch is done, heat up the gravy.
6Put the French fries in a bowl, sprinkle on cheese, and bathe in gravy. Serve immediately so the fries do not get soggy.
