Happy New Year!
It was New Years Eve and we had a craving for poutine, so off to the kitchen I went. Made up the fries, added the cheese curds and topped with vegetarian stout gravy and fresh herbs. This hit the spot for a cold December evening, the bowl was empty in 5 minutes.
Homemade Stout Gravy
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons All Purpose (AP) Flour
- 250 ml vegetable stock
- 250 ml Stout Beer (I used Guinness)
- 1 tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Thyme and Marjoram
Make a rue by melting the butter and adding in the AP flour, cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add in the liquids and raise heat to bring to boil. Add seasonings and simmer until desired thickness.
