Slow Cooker Dublin Coddle

Slow Cooker Dublin Coddle

I would like to think that after a week now, that horrific stomach virus I came down with right before my birthday has run its course. Unfortunately, I still seem to be suffering some after-effects, which is both worrisome, as well as annoying as all get-out. I’ve been thumbing my nose at said virus and eating what I normally would for the most part. I am sick of Gatorade, saltines and chicken broth. UGH. It’s probably not the best meal for me to be eating at the moment, but since it’s cold (I know, where ISN’T it cold in the U.S.?), I made this Slow Cooker Dublin Coddle:

Warm, hearty, and full of pork, if you have porcine-lovers in your house like I do.

Okay, only Jay and I liked it. The bambino gave it that “I don’t think I like this” look as soon as he sat down at the table. I also made soda bread (recipe coming soon!), to sop up all the delicious broth. I even went so far as to get some Kerrygold butter, just to keep it as Irish as possible!

Kerrygold Butter

It seriously hit the spot on this windy, chilly day. This is why I love using a slow cooker. It was ready when we all got home from work/school.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. low-sodium bacon
  • 16 oz. smoked pork sausage
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 2 Tbsp. lightly dried parsley leaves

  • 6 Russet potatoes, peeled and cut into approximately 6-8 chunks each
  • 3 C chicken stock

Instructions

  1. Broil or fry the bacon until it is almost crispy. Cook the sausages until they are browned. Remove from the heat and cut into 1-inch pieces. Cut the bacon slices in half.
  2. In a large 4-cup measuring cup, whisk together the chicken stock, onion powder, thyme, parsley, and garlic paste.
  3. Place the peeled potatoes in the bottom of a slow cooker. Season well with ground black pepper. Scatter the bacon and sausage pieces over top of the potatoes, then pour the chicken stock over all. Season again with additional pepper.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours, or until the potatoes are cooked through and the liquid has thickened somewhat.
  5. Serve with soda bread, if desired.
