Irish Potato Soup is a traditional favorite that never goes out of style. Enjoy its goodness around St. Patrick's Day or any time.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • 6 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 (10-1/2-ounce) cans condensed chicken broth
  • 2 cups plus 3 tablespoons water, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot, melt butter over medium heat and saute onion and celery 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Add potatoes, broth, 2 cups water, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, and pepper; mix well. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat then reduce heat to low and simmer 35 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, combine remaining 3 tablespoons water and cornstarch; stir into soup and cook until thickened.



  • If you'd like, top with thin slices of hard-boiled eggs and sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley just before serving.

Made this soup for the first time about 3 weeks ago. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOIUS! I will be making it again today. Can't get enough of it.

Curious ..what is the surprise ingredient in this?

Hi there! I'm a little confused by the question. This recipe doesn't state it has a surprise ingredient, so I'm not sure what you're looking for exactly? If you can just let me know I'll be happy to help. Thanks!

Recipe calls for 6 potatoes. Would that be 6 small potatoes, 6 medium potatoes, or 6 large potatoes?? Perhaps just saying 1 lb. of potatoes?? Thanks.

Hi there! This recipe calls for medium potatoes. Enjoy!

Sounds good. Might need it this winter.
