This really popular dish is well worth making. The flavours are fantastic and it is fairly easy to make. It is cheap if you leave the prawns out and use all chicken instead. It makes a great family dinner especially midweek when the pennies can be tight. It will also impress friends and family if […]

Japanese Style Tempeh with Noodles and Cheats Kimchi

This dish is not only a feast for the eyes, it’s delicious, combining the deeply savoury tempeh and zing of pickled red cabbage. It’s also clean, really healthy and vegan.

Mongolian Beef – Slow or Pressure Cooker

This is one of those dishes someone made up for western tastes as there is no such dish in Mongolia nor is there one in China. It isn’t one often seen in Ireland either and when you do see it, it isn’t anything like the original version. It is big in American – Chinese restaurants […]

If you want something a bit quicker, I highly recommend the […]

Kung Pao Chicken

Kung Pao Chicken hails from the Szechuan region of china and is a slightly sweet and sour dish with loads of spice. Though you can make it as mild or hot as you like, it really is at it’s best when nice and spicy. Ideally it uses Szechuan or rose peppers rather than black pepper […]

Singapore Noodles

Pork, Chicken or Steak Fajitas

This is a great recipe as 2 pork chops will feed a family of 4. You can use more if you like but it really isn’t needed. You can also use chicken breasts or steak strips if you prefer or use more veggies to make it a vegetarian dish. You can buy spice mixes in […]
