This Black and Blue Poutine Recipe is the perfect choice for dinner! #SundaySupper and #FWCon
Rather than the traditional Russet potato, I used red potatoes cut thinly into shoe string curly fries – drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with garlic salt, and baked them until super crispy!
Lightly seasoned and thinly sliced flank steak broiled in the oven made the perfect choice for topping our poutine. Even though traditional poutine doesn’t include a meat, I thought it was a fitting choice. Still do, if you’re wondering. Hah!
It took every ounce of my willpower not to just sit down and eat the whole tray of fries. They were perfectly crisp and wonderful. The combination of olive oil and garlic salt made them absolutely sing!
Black & Blue Poutine Ingredients:
- 6 – 8 small red potatoes
- olive oil (for drizzling over potatoes and steak)
- garlic salt
- 1 – 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
- 1 pound flank steak
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3 tablespoons blue cheese crumbles (plus a little extra for garnish)
- optional garnish: green onions
Black & Blue Poutine Directions:
- Lay flank steak on a baking sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil on both sides. Rub your favorite seasoned salt into the meat.
- Broil steak on the top rack of your oven for 5 – 7 minutes on either side (steak pictured is 6 minutes), or until steak is done to your liking. Set aside and allow steak to rest.
- Slice potatoes into very thin strips (I used a spiralizer to make quick work of it). Toss potatoes with a thin coating of olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt.
- Spread evenly on a large parchment lined baking sheet (trust me on this, line the baking sheet). Bake at 425 degrees on the center rack for about 40 minutes, tossing and re-spreading the potatoes every 7 – 10 minutes. It will seem like they are never going to crisp up, but I promise they do! And it happens fast, so watch closely toward the end!
- When the potatoes are nearly done, combine blue cheese and butter in a microwave safe bowl and nuke for 30 seconds. Stir well until sauce is fully blended.
- Slice flank steak into thin strips (making sure to cut across the grain).
- Plate french fries and layer with steak, then blue cheese sauce. Sprinkle a touch more garlic salt and garnish with blue cheese crumbles, and green onion.
