Poutine

Need a recipe for poutine. Yes, I looked on the internet, but I figure there would be no better place to ask than here. If there is a thread on this I could not find it so please just give me a warning/delete.

I would like to make it for my friends as we watch next Saturday's game. You see, I live in one of the most horrible places on earth... Western NY.

As long as you can find cheese curds, the rest is pretty easy.

If you can't find the trademark poutine cheese, I suggest cutting an american mozzarella loaf to dices. Not the same thing but close enough. I used to do that when in France.

Okay... cut fresh potatoes in fries then boil them in oil.

Make BBQ sauce to your liking ( that you will find lots of recipes on the internet ), traditionally poutine sauce is pretty much the same as chicken sauce.

Buy mozzarella cheese, no kraft BS, real pizza mozzarella cheese.

to that you can add chicken, sausages, smoke meat...

In my experience the best cheese curd alternative is fresh white cheddar. If you can't find that then mozzarella is a good alternative but in western NY you should be able to find high quality cheddar (not the aged stuff of course) if not curds themselves.

if you cannot buy curd cheese...it will not taste the same. white curd, and your preference of gravy and fries but no light gravy because that's just nasty.

I actually prefer it with grated mozzarella cheese. You shouldn't have a problem finding that

Bacon, onions, peppers, mushrooms, sausages, ground beef...

But most important are the cheese, sauce and fries.

Make fries preferably in peanut oil.

If you can't get the true Quebec curd cheese you can use mozzarella or even an American cheddar curd cheese as long as not to strong.



I have this that I bought when visiting my Canadian relatives, too bad I can't even get that special cheese in Windsor as it only seems to be located in Quebec.

Now here is a website that sells some Canadian specialties.
http://canadiandelicacies.com/sauces-soups.html
I never used it because I live in Metro Detroit so I can easily take a trip over the border, there are some Canadian foods that taste better than what we have here in the States that i like to occasionally get. Speaking of that last time I went to Windsor I told themIi was going shopping. They gave me so much trouble, apparently it is very rare for Americans to shop for food items like chocolates, VH sauces, pates, mixes etc. Next time I am telling them i am going to the casino instead.

Edit>> You put fries in plate add cheese on top and how much gravy you like.

Dude, I can so go for a poutine right about now. If you like going wild with your poutine, here's a link for you. These are not recipes, but will give you an idea of how creative you can be with poutine depending on your taste.

If you find one there you like, then they are pretty easy to put together.

If you have access to fresh cheese curds, get that. If not, the best replacement is a fresh milky cheddar, or a fresh gouda cheese.

Here's my own recipe for a cajun poutine, it always impressed people. For 4 people

Fries
Slice into julienne's 10 golden russet potatos. dont peel the skin.
Drench them in water, once your water is kind of milky, empty water, and drench a second time. This will get rid of excess starch.
Mix these ingredients into a bowl
1 - 60ml of vegetable oil
2 - 3ml of chili powder
3 - 4ml of paprika
4 - 4ml of salt, 4ml of pepper
5 - 10ml of dijon mustard

Preheat oven to 450 degrees celcius. Once oven is heated, mix potatoes with the spice mix. lay them out on a cooking pan, make sure most of them don't touch each other. Turn after 10mins, put back into over for another 10mins. IMPORTANT : mix potatoes with spice mix seconds before putting into oven, don't marinate them.

Sauce
If you have access to french shallots use them, if not use a red oignon.
Fine chop oignon/french shallot
sauté in a pan with a dollup of butter (about 1 table spoon)
add 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of beef broth
add 1 tablespoon of Bovril Beef
Cook until a light boil. Just tiny little bubbles.
Add 1/4 cup of Red Wine, and 1 table spoon of cooking flour.
Let sauce thicken at low heat.

Serve

The closest American comparison is pastrami.

Well mix it up when everything cooked of course. Smoked meat is this



You probably can't find it anywhere but in NYC or MTL. Basically it's smoked pork, salted and peppered very tender and delicious.

This is what i call a BS poutine.

Traditionnaly, sauce is not BBQ, its a brown sauce, peppered. Poutines with chicken sauces are ****.

Don't use mozzarella, use cheddar. Most cheese curds are Cheddar. High quality curds are gouda.

Put a trip to Montreal just for a smoked meat sandwich on your bucket list. Life only begins once you experience a smoked meat sandwich in Montreal. No other smoked meat sandwich in the world comes close. Well, NY. City comes close, but Montreal is the king.

This is a bad thread, I don't have smoke meat and none of that fresh curd cheese.

Smoke meat in Montreal is close to pastrami in taste or for Americans it is close to those little plastic packets of meat you buy in the stores with about 5-6 slices in them. The Canadian ones just taste better than ours.

Basically it's
1. Schwartz's
---
2. Other Famous Montreal Delis
---
3. Mile End in Brooklyn
---
4. Anywhere else

Of course there's some great alternatives (NY pastrami especially), but nothing beats Schwartz's.

Another thing I miss and ask my one aunt to make me when I visit is a good dinner of Boudin. I tried some from new Orleans but it is not as good as the small town Boudin's in Quebec.
