Prep Time: 30 min

Total Time: 60 min
- Water, 2 tablespoon
- Chicken broth, 10 oz.
- Cornstarch, 3 tablespoon
- Unbleached all purpose flour, ¼ cup
- Unsalted butter, 6 tablespoon
- Beef broth, 20 oz.
- Pepper, as per taste
Deep Fried Fries
- Frying oil
- Russet potatoes, 2 lb.
- White cheddar cheese curds, 1 cup
- To make the gravy, combine the corn flour and water in a bowl and leave it aside.
- The butter should be melted in a pot. When the mixture starts to turn golden brown, add the flour & continue to cook, stirring frequently, for approximately five mins.
- Bring to a boil while whisking in the beef & chicken broth. Add about HALF of the corn flour mixture, stir, and cook for a few seconds. Add more of the corn flour mixture, in little amounts, as needed, to thicken the gravy if you prefer it to be more substantial. Use pepper to season. When in doubt, taste and add more salt as desired. Up till your fries are ready, prepare ahead of time and reheat or keep warm.
- Prepare the potatoes and chop them into half an inch thick sticks for deep-fried fries. Place in a dish and completely submerge in ice water. Allow to stand for a minimum of an hour and possibly longer. When you’re ready to cook, heat the oil to 300 degrees Fahrenheit in the deep fryer or large, broad, heavy cooking pot.
- Place the potatoes on a piece of paper towel after removing them from the water. Blot to get rid of as much extra moisture as you can.
- Fries should only be cooked for five to eight mins, till they begin to cook but are still not browned, in oil heated to 300°F. Put potatoes on a wire rack after removing them from the oil. Raise the temperature of the oil to 375° F. Return the potatoes into the fryer once the oil reaches that temperature and cook until they are golden brown. Transfer to a bowl lined with paper towels.
- To make poutine, place your fried in a bowl. While still warm, season lightly with salt. With tongs, toss the fries in the hot poutine gravy that has been added to the bowl. As necessary, add additional gravy to fully coat the fries.
- With the hot fries & gravy, combine the cheese curds. Add freshly ground pepper before serving. Serve right away.
A delicious gravy is necessary for a top-notch poutine. Make your own gravy with beef or chicken stock, or use a premium store-bought gravy to save time. If you want to enhance the flavor even further, try adding a little Worcestershire sauce or red wine.
