Quebecer Gravy
by James Belardo

A wonderful creation coming from Canada is the devilishly decadent French-Canadian invention Poutine! Born in the 50’s, in the province of Quebec, it has quite literally taken over most of Canada and is now spreading throughout the world. The real secret of the Poutine is the use of simple and quality ingredients. If you can find a good source of cheese curds, you’re on the right path…

2 cloves garlic (crushed or finely diced)
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp water
6 tbsp unsalted butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups beef stock
1 cup chicken stock
1-2 tbsp Quebecer Spice Rub
Salt – to taste

1. Mix the cornstarch and water well and set aside.
2. Using a saucepan on low heat, melt the butter and add the crushed garlic.
3. Cook for about 1 or 2 minutes, stirring constantly
4. Add the flour and keep mixing for around 5 minutes or until the mixture begins to turn brown.
5. Add the stock (1/2 cup at a time) bringing to a boil before adding more liquid)
6. In the last stage whisk in the cornstarch and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes until the sauce thickens.
7. Add the Quebecer Spice Rub and salt to taste.
