With all due respect, Ireland is not best known for its cuisine, except for a few dishes including fish and chips and this Dublin Coddle. It’s easy, hearty, delicious, and apparently more traditional than corned beef, which is rather Irish-American.  I think this flavorful stew is a perfect way to celebrate Ireland. With a side of melontini, of course. 😉

 

This coddle [to cook gently] is a breeze to make in your slow cooker or on the stovetop, but I opted for my Instant Pot to justify its price. And because it’s super easy to clean. But mostly because of its price. You don’t pay that much for a small appliance and not use it. I’m mostly telling this to myself because I tend to forget it even though it’s sitting on my counter. It takes time to teach an old dog a new trick.

 

Since I had it, I only used it twice. For this Dublin coddle and the garlic lemon chicken (which was also super tasty, by the way).  From what I’ve heard, and correct me if I’m wrong my Irish friends, coddle is a dish which is often made to use up leftovers, and therefore without a specific recipe. I’d love you to share your family’s coddle recipe with me.

    I made Dublin coddle a couple of days ago! In my Instant Pot! I added a few other ingredients and seasonings making it less authentic probably, but hey it was my coddle It’s definitely a hearty comfort meal. The only thing that didn’t work out for me was the potatoes which disintegrated in the broth, so in the end I decided it wasn’t photo-worthy. Yours is beautiful! I might give it another go, I shall follow your recipe closely.

      Isn’t it super flavorful? I don’t think adding more ingredients and seasonings made it less authentic. There are different versions out there. And so it is with any dish, we all make it a bit our own.
      Hope your potatoes don’t fall apart next time. I was worried that mine weren’t cooked enough, but they turned out good. 🙂

    Dublin coddle sounds delicious. I would probably make it in a dutch oven. It’s always nice to have something bubbling on the stove and making the house smell warm and delightful on a cold and windy March day.
