About the Recipe
4 cups frozen French fries
2 cups cheese curds
1 1/2 cups chopped kimchi, drained
1/4 cup chopped green onions, for garnish
For the gravy:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups beef or vegetable broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
Cook the frozen French fries according to the package instructions, ensuring they are crispy and golden brown.
While the fries are cooking, prepare the gravy. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour, whisking constantly for 1-2 minutes to create a roux.
Gradually pour in the beef or vegetable broth, whisking continuously to prevent lumps. Add the soy sauce, garlic powder, and onion powder, and continue whisking until the mixture reaches a smooth consistency.
Allow the gravy to come to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the gravy thickens. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Assemble the poutine: Spread the cooked French fries on a serving platter or individual plates. Evenly distribute the cheese curds over the fries, followed by the chopped kimchi.
Pour the hot gravy over the fries, cheese curds, and kimchi, ensuring everything is well coated. Garnish with chopped green onions.
Serve the Kimchi Poutine immediately and enjoy this delicious fusion of flavors!
