Directions
  • For the gravy: Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and the sausage, breaking up the latter with a spoon or fork and letting it brown until fully cooked. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon and set aside.

  • Add the onions and the butter to the skillet. Saute until the onions are dark brown and caramelized. Add the flour, a little at a time, and cook, stirring constantly, to make a dark roux, 6 to 10 minutesdon't let it burn, but it should be nice and dark.

  • Slowly add the milk and beef stock, stirring vigorously to work it all together. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • Add the cooked sausage to the gravy; stir well. Simmer for a minute or two, until the gravy reaches the desired consistency.

  • For the poutine: Fry the steak fries in vegetable oil until crispy.

  • Serve the fries covered in sausage gravy and cheese curds. Pop in the oven to melt the cheese curds, if necessary.
