Tap For Ingredients


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with the oil and spices. Make sure they’re thoroughly coated before putting them on the parchment-lined tray in a single layer. Roast for 15 minutes, flip, and then roast for an additional 15 minutes.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, heat a cast iron (or other not non-stick skillet) over medium heat. Add the oil. Add the bison, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Use a wooden spoon to scrape up the bits that are clinging to the bottom. Those brown bits = incredible flavour! Add the onion, and cook for another two minutes before adding the garlic. Stir. Add the hot sauce, vinegar, honey and butter, and reduce the heat to low. Allow the bison mixture to cook for another 8-10 minutes, stirring often. Set aside.
  • To make the gravy, heat a saucepan over medium-low heat. Melt the butter. Add the flour, and use a whisk to whisk the flour into the melted butter. Cook the mixture for about a minute before slowly drizzling in the beef broth while whisking. Continue to whisk the gravy until it’s thick and glossy – about 5 minutes. Season with pepper and set aside.
  • To build the poutine: add a base layer of hot French fries on each plate. Top with some cheese, steaming hot gravy, and some of the bison mixture. Drizzle on a little ranch or blue cheese dressing, extra hot sauce, and green onions. Serve immediately.
