Preparation

PULLED BEEF

• Sear the beef scoter, previously cut into 4 inch pieces, in a pan with butter and salt and pepper.

• Transfer the browned beef pieces in a deep/creuset dish and cover with half water, half beer. The meat must be covered with liquid.

• Add the carrots, celery, onions, garlic, bay leaves, paprika and peppercorn.

• Cover and cook for 12 hours at 200°F.

• Remove the meat and shred it while still hot.

 

Note : Pour the cooking juice through a sieve and let sit for 6 hours in the refrigerator. Then remove the grease and use the cooking juice in the gravy.

 

POUTINE GRAVY

• In a pan, at medium heat, combine the sugar, chives and garlic and let it melt until a caramel is obtained.

• Deglaze with the balsamic vinegar, add the butter and reduce to half.

• Add the cooking juice from the beef, the beer, the tomato paste and the spices. Simmer for about 5 minutes.

• Dilute the corn starch in cold water and whip the mix into the gravy. Season and serve.

 

HOMEMADE FRIES

• Peel the potatoes, leaving a bit of the skin on and cut into 1 cm thick pieces. Let them sit in cold water for an hour, drain and pat dry.

• Pour the oil in a fryer or large pot and heat to 325°F. Blanch the fries for 2-3 minutes. Remove the fries from the oil and drain well.

• Heat the oil up to 375°F. Place the fries in the oil for another 4 or 5 minutes of cooking or until they are golden.

• Drain the fries and cover with a paper towel to remove excess oil

 

ASSEMBLY DIRECTIONS

• Place the golden fries in the serving dishes.

• Place the pulled beef on the fries.
