Saddleback Staples - Poutine
Poutine has strong roots in Canada, and we tried to put a barbeque spin on it here at Saddleback. We had the idea for poutine because we were wasting all of our pork and chicken bones, and wanted to put them into something that customers would love. When making poutine, the gravy is the piece that ties the rest of the dish together. We start with a roux of flour and margarine, then add in some chicken and pork stock. Next, we will take our chicken and pork bones and boil them together with carrots, celery, onions and garlic to make a smoky tasting gravy. This gravy goes on top of our seasoned fries, cheese curds, and smoked meat, and the dish is finished with green onions and a little of our pork rub.
