Recipe - Irish Banger Skillet

An Irish Banger Skillet is a one-pan dish that is easy to make, yet packed with the flavor of a traditional Irish dish. The recipe is quick and can be ready in 30 minutes, making it the perfect meal for a busy night. It also pairs well with traditional Irish sides, like Colcannon.

Irish sausages, also known as bangers, are made with lean pork that is seasoned with a variety of spices. They are traditionally cooked in a cast-iron skillet. However, you can also use a grill or a cooktop to prepare them.

Bangers are generally served with potatoes and fresh herbs. You can use any kind of meat to make them, including beef, lamb, or chicken. When cooking, it is best to use a cast iron pan so that the sausages will open up in the skillet. Ideally, they should be browned all over. Then, they should be layered in the pan and sliced potatoes added to the top.

When you make Irish Banger Sausages, you will need to use a cast-iron skillet. In addition to the sausages, you will need chicken stock, butter, and a beef broth. This will create a delicious brown gravy. The flavor of the gravy is enhanced with the addition of stout beer and brown sugar. You can also use a low-sodium beef broth if you are concerned about calorie and salt content.

Adding cabbage and potatoes to the pan will add an additional layer of flavor to the dish. You can start preparing the potatoes while the onions are cooking. It will take about 12 to 15 minutes for them to be fork-tender. This will give you enough time to put the onions in the skillet for another ten minutes.

After the sausages have been browned, you can add a bit of water to the pan. The water should be about half the amount of the liquid that you are using for the gravy. If you are making the gravy without alcohol, you will need to increase the amount of beef broth. This will help to create a thicker sauce.

After the vegetables and meat are finished, you can make a side of mashed potatoes. You can either add a small amount of butter to the skillet while they are cooking or use non-stick cooking spray. When the potatoes are cooked, you can add them to the cabbage and sausages. This will give you the classic Irish dinner you’ve been looking for.

The mashed potatoes can be served separately or over the cabbage. You can even add stout beer to the mash if you’d like. This is the perfect way to serve your family a healthy and tasty meal.

Bangers and mash are the ultimate comfort food. The mixture of the potatoes, cabbage, and mashed sausages will be a feast for your taste buds. This recipe is also a great option for St. Patrick’s Day. It is the perfect meal for your family and guests.
