Pouting is as simple as it is delicious. The street food consists of a good serving of French fries, topped with cheese curds and hot, brown gravy. Traditionally, thickly cut potatoes are fried – sometimes even twice – to make for a crunchy texture with a soft inside. This is important so that the fries stay crispy and don’t get instantly soaked with the gravy. The cheese of choice is usually cheddar which doesn’t melt as easily and comes with a nice and chewy consistency.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. For the gravy, dissolve the starch in 30 ml of water.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan and add the flour. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes while stirring constantly until the color turns golden. Now add the finely chopped garlic.
  3. Now mix the roux with the starch and the beef and chicken stock. Let the gravy simmer for a couple of minutes in order for it to thicken. Finally, season with salt and pepper.
  4. If you have chosen ready-made fries, simply make them in the oven or a deep fryer according to the instructions on the packaging.
  5. For homemade fries, wash the potatoes and cut them into strips. You can decide for yourself how thick you want the fries to be. Heat up a good amount of oil in a large pot and fry the potatoes until they turn golden yellow. Take them out and drain on a paper towel.
  6. Cut the cheddar cheese into small cubes.
  7. Cut the chicken breast and chorizo into small, bite-sized pieces. Heat up some oil or butter in a pan and fry the meats for a couple of minutes until they are done and slightly browned.
  8. Finally, portion the fries onto large plates, pour a good serving of warm gravy over them and evenly distribute the cheese, chicken and chorizo.
