I cooked a Beef Brisket in the slow cooker at the weekend for a special project I am working on. (To be revealed at a later date.) I ended up with a decent amount of leftover cooked brisket and decided to make a Poutine with it . . . but not just any Poutine, but a Barbeque Beef Poutine!
Poutine is a Canadian thing. It started off as just chips with gravy and cheese on top . . . but you know how it goes . . . it's a thing which can easily be adapted and switched up to incorporate a lot of flavours and ideas. I love my Hot Turkey Poutine, which is a regular around here after Christmas and Thanksgiving where I get to use my leftover turkey, stuffing and gravy. It's positively delicious and so is thiss Barbeque Beef version!
Leftover roast beef, simmered in a barbeque sauce and the spooned over chips and topped with cheese. I love the Newman's own BBQ sauces. I used a mixture of the Carolina BBQ Sauce and the Sweet Hickory Sauce. Beautiful combination with a bit of a bite. I loosened it with a bit of beef broth . . .
You could make your own chips for this, or even use chips picked up at the chippie. I used a good quality oven chip. Cheese curds are not readily available over here, so do feel free to use them if you can get them. I used crumbled medium white cheddar cheese. This was fabulous.

This was really, REALLY good. I do hope that you will give it a go! You could just use half a pound of browned extra lean ground beef if you didn't have the leftover roast beef, and it would still be delicious!
