Smoked pulled pork is a wonderful thing! Anytime I smoke pork butts I throw more than one in the smoker. I figure if the smoker is gonna be going for a while, I might as well fill it up with meat.
As a result, I usually have some extra pulled pork and I love to find some new ways to use up the pulled pork. Poutine is some true Canadian food and I figured that doing a mashup of poutine and pulled pork could work.
This is not the first time that I have used pulled pork in a different type of recipe. In the past, I have posted a number of recipes that used some leftover pulled pork. Here are a few of them.
- Pulled Pork Shepherd’s Pie – this is one of my favourite ways to use some pulled pork. Instead of ground beef, pulled pork is used and it works so well in a shepherds pie.
- Pulled Pork Nachos – I love nachos and throwing some smoked meat on the nachos is amazing!
- Pulled Pork Smoked Atomic Buffalo Turd Jalapeno Poppers ABT – you need these in your life right now. Jalapeño poppers with pulled pork and wrapped in bacon. Nothing more needs to be said.
- Pulled Pork Parfait – I had this at a fair once. Instead of an ice cream sundae, let’s go savoury by putting scoops of mashed potatoes, pulled pork and BBQ sauce in a parfait glass. Stick in a pickle spear as well!
Poutine made with leftover pulled pork, cheese curds and crispy french fries and covered with BBQ gravy. Great unique smoky poutine!
- 6 russet potatoes
- 2 cups beef gravy
- 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
- 1 pound pulled pork meat
- 2 cups cheese curds
- salt, to taste
Wash the potatoes and cut into french fry sized sticks.
In a small pot or saucepan whisk together the gravy and bbq sauce. Warm the bbq gravy on medium heat.
Heat the pulled pork in a cast iron skillet on medium heat. Stir often. The pork will start to brown in some spots and crisp up a little bit.
Heat oil in a deep fryer to 350F. Add the potato sticks, in batches, to the hot oil. Fry until the french fries are cooked through and crispy on the outside. Drain and toss with a little salt.
Make the poutine by stacking some french fries on a plate. Spoon some pulled pork on the fries and top with cheese curds. Pour some gravy on top and serve immediately.
