Irish Bangers and Mash
Total Time:30 minutes
A traditional Irish dish. And the translation? Sausage and mashed potatoes (this recipe features cabbage in the mash!).
- 1 pound potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 2 cups chopped or shredded cabbage
- 2 1/2 cups onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 8 links pork sausage
- 2 cups beef broth
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- In a medium saucepan, cover the potatoes with water. Bring to a boil and simmer 15 minutes, or until tender.
- As the potatoes are cooking, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over low heat. Add cabbage and 1/2 cup onion and saute until soft but not brown. Remove from heat and reserve.
- Drain the cooked potatoes and mash by hand. Incorporate the milk and butter into the potatoes until well mixed, and fold in the cooked cabbage and onions. Season to taste.
- Fry sausage in another skillet over medium-high heat, until browned. Remove the sausage from the pan.
- In the pan juices, saute 2 cups chopped onion until lightly browned. Add beef broth, bring to a boil, and simmer 5 minutes. Thicken with cornstarch.
- Place one scoop of potatoes in the center of a serving plate, top with two sausages, and cover with gravy.
