Irish Stew- Dublin Coddle
Dublin Coddle is a traditional bacon, sausage, potato, and onion stew. It’s believed to have been initially created to use-up leftovers but has evolved into a beloved Irish classic. My Irish friends tell me that every house in Ireland has their own version, with subtle variations depending on the cook’s preferences. Some cooks may use ham in place of the bacon or they may add carrots for color.
The stew is slowly simmered in the oven and seasoned simply with salt and black pepper. A loaf of Irish soda bread to sop up the juice is a must. perfectly suited for any day, but especially festive for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
