About this recipe: A true Irish dish which has been enjoyed for many a year by all Dublin people, soon to be enjoyed by your family over and over again! This is the bare bones traditional recipe but feel free to add garlic, a bay leaf or other fresh herbs for flavour. It's also good if you replace the water with cider.
Just as my mother used to make it! I prefer to quickly flash the sausages and onion in a little hot sunflower oil and allow the bacon to cook in the stew as opposed to cooking it first. A couple of bay leaves and chicken stock instead of water give it a bit more body. And don't forget the Lea & Perrins! - 20 Jul 2011
