It’s one of the best Irish comfort foods: coddle.
Coddle is a traditional Irish dish that’s mostly associated with Dublin. It’s a hearty, nutritious, mouth-watering stew-like dish full of taste and flavour.
2 medium white onions
6 traditional pork sausages
500 ml rich beef stock
2 tbsp vegetable oil
Parsley for serving
Salt and pepper for seasoning
To add variety, for a different texture add tomatoes.
Place the sausages and ham in freshly boiled water and boil for 5 minutes. Drain, but reserve the liquid.
Slice the onions, potatoes and chop the parsley.
Heat up your stock.
Put the meat into a large saucepan with the onions, potatoes, and parsley. Add enough of the stock but don't cover all of the contents.
Cover the pot and simmer gently for about one hour. Make sure all of the ingredients are cooked but vegetables are not mushy.
Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot with the vegetables on top.
