2. Making your own gravy
is one way of making poutine the Canadian way. If you’re short of time, you may decide to buy brown gravy in the jar and pour it on top of the poutine, but if you want real poutine, you will want to do it the right way. In order to get the real experience of Canadian poutine, you should make your own gravy.
There is a recipe online for beef gravy that goes on top of Canadian poutine that only takes a few ingredients, including beef and chicken stock. By adding beef and chicken stock, it gives the gravy its brown color. By making your own gravy, it’ll be fresher than just pouring a jar of brown gravy on the poutine. You will know exactly what you’re eating because you made the gravy yourself versus just using store-bought gravy. The gravy will be light and have a flavorful taste.
