What is Dublin Coddle?

Irish Central describes a Dublin Coddle as “a warming meal of sausages and potatoes, dates back to the 1700s and is traditionally thought of as a city dish eaten in the winter months.”

Traditionally the Dublin Coddle is a classic Irish dish made with potatoes, onions, rashers (bacon) and bangers (sausages) boiled in chicken stock. 

What to Serve with Dublin Coddle?

Dublin Coddle is a one-pot meal. But adding an Irish Soda Bread would make this a perfect Irish Pub meal!

This recipe is one of our favorites.

This Dublin Coddle veers from the familiar by cooking it in a cast iron skillet versus a Dutch Oven or soup pot. We’ve also added some additional vegetables like onion, carrots, and celery along with the barley to enhance the flavor and make it a tad more healthy.

For the sausages, use a good quality pork sausage. Bangers are traditional and incredibly delicious, but use what your butcher recommends. In this dish, we browned the sausages first and then sliced into bite-size pieces.

  • Cuisine: Irish

Ingredients

1 large onion, chopped
6 slices of thick bacon, chopped
4 large Yukon Gold potatoes, sliced
2 carrots, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
8 butchers pork sausages
2 cups chicken stock
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup pearl barley
large bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
Sea salt and ground black pepper

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 425°.

Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, drizzle a drop of oil in the pan and fry the bacon and sausages until golden brown on all sides. Remove to a plate and drain on paper towels. Once cooled, slice the sausages into bite-size pieces.

To the skillet add the onions, celery, and carrots. Saute for 3 minutes, or until the vegetables begin to soften. Then layer the skillet with the bay leaf, cooked bacon and sausages, pearl barley and finish with a layer of sliced potatoes. Pour the stock over the vegetables, cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer on the stovetop for 30 minutes.

Remove the lid and dot the potatoes with butter. Season with sea salt and freshy ground black pepper; transfer to the oven and cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until the potatoes turn golden brown.

Ladle generous servings of the stew in bowls, garnish with fresh parsley and serve with crusty bread or Irish Soda Bread to mop up the juices.
