Instant Pot Irish Dublin Coddle is a bangers and potato dish. However, in the U.S. bangers are hard to find so we replace with them with traditional plain sausage. It’s an Irish comfort food dish that can be served up for St. Patrick’s Day.

Adaption Irish Dublin Coddle To The Instant Pot

To be an authentic Irish Coddle, everything will be boiled together instead of layered and the sausages are not browned. This is my adaption for the instant pot as it’s not easy to boil everything together without it being mush. I browned the sausages for texture as we like a little crisp on them. If you want it more soupy add more broth. We like just some liquid.

The bacon was precooked in the oven for ease. Then I added it to the instant pot before closing and cooking with pressure. After the pressure was release from the instant pot I added parsley.

My potatoes feel apart at the end but that’s okay. We all like tender potatoes; hard potatoes suck. The layers of ingredients while simple, still render a fantastic sausage dinner. This is not considered a quick dinner but more a Sunday dinner.

This sausage dish was made in a 6 quart instant pot. If you’d like to make it in an 8 quart instant pot add 1/3 more of each ingredient. If you would like to make this in a 3 quart instant pot then cut all the ingredients in half. This technique usually works with most instant pot recipes as well.
