AN EASY IRISH STEW RECIPE

Hello thare Monday! Today’s meat and potatoes is brought to you by the Irish! Easy, real food, homemade, comforting stew.

By the way, hope your week is off to a great start! Mondays are so hard, especially when the clock moves 1 hour forward. Ugh…
Truth? I feel so sleepy right now. Like, jet lagged or somethin’. WELP!

I can’t even remember how I got through getting the little ones ready for school this morning… I was half-asleep.

…which might also have something to do with binge watching The People v. O.J. Simpson, last night.  At least I’m caught up! (AND hooked!)

Anyhew.

I have two things to say today: ‘Lo there, friends! Supwcha der, sham!? That’s probably all I know in Irish slang, but I’m also just stating the obvious – it’s Irish week! St. Pat’s is around the corner and Dublin Coddle is in order.

WHAT IS A DUBLIN CODDLE?

Have you ever had a Dublin Coddle? I have a very off-the-boat Irish uncle and you better believe that this amazing stew happens often, but it doesn’t happen often enough. A mess that starts with sausages and bacon, and ends with flavorful and soft layered potatoes… GIMME!! 

Maybe it’s too obvious, but I SO love layered casseroles, all in one pot, and in the oven. All the work I have to do takes up just a cutting board and a knife. The rest is done by our bestie, the oven.

Besides the truth that it’s easy to make, and it’s the most cozy and comforting food known to humans, it is the most delicious hearty Irish dish that will warm your heart and your belleh.

Honestly though? You would be wise to make this happen if you’re into the whole Irish and St. Patty’s thing.
No. Scratch that. If you love damn good food, you should just go into the kitchen, walk in there right now, and make it. AND, you guys will want to eat it forever.

      Hi!
      I use a 6 quart dutch oven, but anything that’s around 3 quarts (like a 9×13 dish) will work.

  1. I was so looking forward to making this then looked at the sodium level….I can only hope it tastes as good as it looked….

      Hi!
      It really is good, but it’s those smoked sausages that contribute to most of the sodium. If you can, find ones that are reduced in sodium and that should help. I know Eckrich definitely makes them.

    Tried this over the weekend. It is so delicious!!! 🙂 Definitely a keeper recipe. Thanks!

  3. Stacey I went to check the wiki definition of coddle as well and found the comment rather more accurately says “Coddle is an Irish dish which is often made to use up leftovers, and therefore without a specific recipe.”Wikipedia

  4. I made this last night. Wow delicious!! Absolute flavour riot. The only problem was the baking time. I baked it according to the recipe and ended up transferring it to my instantpot. If I had to guess I’d say 2 hrs in the oven. Totally doable but I ran out of time.

    1. I just made this but did a few adjustments so my parents would like it and we all loved it will make again for sure

        I’m confused. So the bacon goes i in raw? How does it cook up?…does it get crispy? I’m planning to use American bacon. This whole
        Dish sounds like a warm hug lol.

          Hi!
          Yes, the bacon goes in raw, but if you want to fry it up, first, go right ahead. It will crisp up in the oven a bit, but as I said, if you want to, you can fry it beforehand.

  5. It’s literally not coddle but please do continue to preach about pretentiousness while telling someone actually from Dublin what a coddle is. People have there different ways of doing Coddle but they actually make coddle and this recipe is not even close to it.

  6. Wow! This was delicious! Earthy, savory and comforting. Served this with some homemade Irish Soda Bread and a pint of Guinness. Yummm! Be sure to slice your veggies at 1/2 inch, so the timing works.
