One of my favorite comfort foods in poutine. Without a doubt. It doesn’t matter if I’m sick, in a rut… whatever… it’s always been the first food I crave. 

A couple months ago, the hubs and I headed over to The Firkin Group of Pubs for dinner; Lo and behold they had a Pulled Pork Poutine on their menu. I’d always been very skeptical about the addition of meat to poutine… that was until I tried it. It was delicious, I tell ya!!
Ever since I’ve found myself recreating this meal at home, and everyone always asks me how to make it. (Hence the blog post). It’s really quite a quick and easy meal to make.
The key ingredients are:
  • cheese curds,
  • fries,
  • 355ml can of rootbeer,
  • bottle of your favorite bbq sauce,
  • pork loin roast, and
  • poutine sauce.

To start, place the pork roast in your slow cooker and cover in the can of root beer. Cook for 7 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high. 

Once done, drain off the rootbeer, shred the pork and mix in your favorite BBQ sauce. Return to slow cooker, and keep it on warm.
While your pulled pork is warming, cook your fries in your oven or fryer until its reached your desired crispiness. Warm your poutine sauce while the fries are cooking. Once done, layer fries on a plate with cheese curds and poutine sauce. Top with pulled pork.
This is really one of those meals that could work with any meat… butter chicken, beef brisket… The options are endless.
What’s your favorite comfort food?
Happy eating!

    @jed – I buy cheese curds from the Walmart Superstore. They are generally found in the specialty cheese carrels in the deli section.
