Dublin Coddle with Sausage

Dublin Coddle with Sausage a Leprechaun style is an oven-slow-cooked traditional Irish potato and sausage stew. It’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or any other day when you’re in need of some comfort food! Many of you will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with corned beef and cabbage, and no offense to you (I love corned beef and cabbage, too), but you should be having this Dublin coddle instead. It’s hearty, simple, and delicious, and it’s a more authentic way to celebrate Ireland than corned beef, according to my research.

Sausage, potatoes, onions, parsley, and bacon are among the standard ingredients in coddle. Making vegan Dublin coddle was as simple as substituting vegan sausage for pork and omitting the bacon, though I did add a little Liquid Smoke to the broth to compensate for the bacon flavor. After that, the coddle is slow-cooked (or “coddled”) until the vegetables are tender; adding apple cider (instead of a dark beer) near the end adds authenticity and depth to the dish.

The Irish version of beef stew is Dublin coddle. Bacon, pork sausages, onions, and potatoes are simmered in a thick brown gravy for hours. This is the kind of meal that can sit in the oven for hours while you’re at work and still taste delicious.

Our Beer Substitution

Yes, traditional (non-vegan) coddle uses Guinness, a dark beer. But we want a healthy substitute! You’ll find that the apple cider gives it a deeper flavor and adds some nutrients, too. Did you know that cider is apple juice, but not filtered? Yes, that apple cider is actually better for you than apple juice, but then, apples with all their fiber still intact are better still.

If you are concerned with the juice factor, consider using either a vegan beef broth or, our favorite, a mushroom gravy! Mushrooms in their water sauté provide that deep flavor this dish appreciates.

With these substitutes, no one will miss the Guiness!

In coddle, what kind of sausage do you use?

Irish sausages/Irish Fauxsages are the best used in Dublin Coddle. They are sweet and mild, not smoky nor spicy, I completely changed the spices in my Irish variation to reflect traditional Irish sausage recipes. They resembled cooked gimme flex in texture and color, and I think they’d make good breakfast sausage.


Traditional Irish Sausages are difficult to come by in the United States, I recommend using any high-quality pork sausage you can find. In this recipe, I’ve rounded up vegan sausage with good results.
