Instant Pot Irish Bangers with Onion Gravy Recipe
Although St. Patrick’s Day in America is often celebrated with food that isn’t even Irish (corned beef actually has Jewish roots and was originally prepared by early Irish immigrants when they couldn’t get some of the meats they had previously enjoyed in Ireland), there are dozens of great Irish dishes that can be served for St. Patrick’s Day that are actually authentic. One popular dish served all over Ireland is Bangers and Mash, which uses Irish sausages. It can be made easily in the Instant Pot, and quickly, as well. Instant Pot Irish Bangers with Onion Gravy is delicious, and is made with very Irish ingredients: Irish sausages, Guinness, and potatoes.
Irish sausages (bangers) can be found in many larger grocery stores, and also membership warehouse stores such as Sam’s and Costco. If you can’t find them in your area, you can substitute your favorite sausages such as bratwurst.
