Start preparing our sauce
Preparing a poutine sauce is quite simple.
Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Be careful, it must not turn brown. When it has melted and simmered slightly, add the flour and stir constantly for about 1 minute. This mixture is called a roux and is used to thicken our sauce.
Once the minute has elapsed, pour in the 2 cans of concentrated broth and stir constantly with a whisk. Then add the brown sugar, ketchup, mustard and Worcestershire sauce and bring to a boil.
When the boiling point is reached, reduce the heat and continue cooking for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens. Then simply remove from the heat.
You are welcome to put a pinch of salt in the sauce. Some people add a little garlic, paprika, a few drops of hot sauce, etc. It is up to you to follow your taste buds.
