Poutine is a dish that comes from Quebec that is a favorite to eat and/or make. It consists of French fries, cheese curds, and brown gravy. It is a dish that many people try to mimic, but they don’t get it quite right.
In order to make poutine the Canadian way, there are a few tips to remember. By following these tips, poutine will taste similar to the original Canadian dish. In order to get the dish right, you may want to try the original dish first before trying it out on your own. Once you figure out how the dish looks and tastes, then you can try it out on your own at home.
The dish may look simple enough to make sense only three ingredients are needed, but the three ingredients have to be right. If the ingredients are wrong, you won’t have Canadian poutine. You will have an American version of the dish instead.
1. Using the right cheese
is important when making poutine the Canadian way. Cheese curds are difficult to find, but you can substitute it with chunks of mozzarella cheese. The mozzarella cheese doesn’t have to be fresh, but it should be the same kind of cheese that is used when putting toppings on pizza. The mozzarella needs to be full fat, so this may not be a dish for someone who wants to watch their weight.
You might think that cheese is cheese and any kind will work. That’s not the case. You shouldn’t use cheddar cheese because it won’t taste like a real Canadian poutine. When putting the cheese onto the poutine, make sure it is in chunks. You don’t want to shred it. String cheese will work just as well as long as it’s mozzarella. In fact, with string cheese you can just cut it and instead of taking it off like string.
