Chicken Balti

This is a really simple curry to make though may look a little daunting due to the amount of ingredients. The flavours are fantastic and it is fairly quick to make. You may have to spend a bit on ingredients at first but it is worth it as you will make a mountain of curries […]

20160702_125306

Smoked Bacon & Mushroom Omelette

Omelettes are quick, easy and cheap, they make a great breakfast, lunch or even a dinner. If you are broke and looking for something simple to make that will fill you and your family then these are perfect though they are great to make even when you aren’t. The best thing about them is you […]

Chicken Pakora – Gluten free

This is one for those of you who are on a gluten free diet. It uses Gram Flour instead of plain flour. Gram Flour is made from Chickpeas and can be found in some supermarkets, health food stores and Asian stores. It makes a wonderful starter to any meal but works especially well if planning […]

Spicy Lamb Koftas

These Turkish Skewer Lamb Mince Kebabs can be thrown together in a matter of minutes. They are great for the BBQ, party or even a family dinner. They are also great for a packed lunch as they can be taken off the skewers and served with a nice dip or even ketchup if that is […]

turkey-stew-e15162080894341

Spicy Turkey & Vegetable stew

Turkey mince is something that’s easy to find in supermarkets and it’s pretty cheap to buy. It’s also a really lean meat so it’s great for anyone who, like me, tries to eat healthily most of the time. This dish is jam packed with vegetables and proteins from the chickpeas and beans. I have this […]

20170322_175435

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 […]

Chicken-mince-stir-fry

Chicken Stir Fry with Oyster Sauce and Chilli

This is a dish for broke days, days when you don’t have much time to cook or even the days you want something really tasty that won’t leave you feeling bloated. I really enjoyed this dish and I felt great after eating it. It is full of goodness with all the veggies it contains. Make […]

Thai Pork Meatballs in a Rich Curry Sauce

Someone sent me a message last week asking what she could do with pork mince. It was then that I came up with this dish. While living in China I seen this weird dish, it looked like a watery soup with loads of spices and fishballs floating in it. It turned out this is one […]

20180525_191932-1000x562

Crispy Sweet & Sour Chicken

I asked if people on our Facebook page wanted this recipe. The answer was a definate yes from a lot of people. The one thing I did take note of was how a few mentioned they found many, especially packet sweet and sour sauces, contain an awful lot of sugar. This made me think about […]

Chicken-Meatballs

Chicken Meatballs in a Spicy Peanut sauce with Egg Noodles

This is officially the best dish on biamaith.ie as far as I am concerned, it is amazing, one of my best yet. It is really filling so a little goes a long way and each spoonful is part of your five a day so it not only tastes fantastic it is good for you. I […]

20160112_160932(1)

Beef Cannelloni

THIS is a pretty simple dish to make and one I am sure you and your family will love. You can finely chop a carrot or two and hide them in the meat sauce or do as I did and use a pepper. The tubes are pretty easy to fill if you allow the meat sauce […]

20170330_173843

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 […]

White Pudding and Apple Stuffing

White Pudding and Apple Stuffing

This simple stuffing is ideal with pork or chicken. You can serve it with pork chops, a chicken fillet or a full on Roast Pork or Roast Chicken. Click the blue links for recipes for each. I prefer the cheaper stuffing, you know the one with no grainy bits through it. I used a pudding […]

20160610_191001

Red Braised Pork Belly

I learnt this dish while working in Shanghai and ended up eating it almost everyday for weeks. I couldn’t get some of the ingredients here so I adapted it to suit the ingredients I could get. The flavour and colour are slightly different but not dramatically so. If you can get your hands on dark […]

20170405_212749

Nasi Goreng

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 […]

20150818_204822

Tagliatelle Carbonara

CARBONARA is easily the most popular pasta dish in the world. I have seen it served from Ireland, to Germany, Australia and even in Hong Kong. Unfortunately most restaurants and chefs haven’t got a clue how to make a proper one. Being a big bacon and cheese lover I really love a good carbonara when made […]

Simple Lamb Shanks (Slow Cooker)

This is a wonderful dish that can be made by anyone, it takes very little work as the oven does most of that, so you can concentrate on other things. I will upload more recipes for Lamb Shanks over time, most more complicated that this simple one.  

Pork Fillet Mush and Pepper

Pork Fillet Medallions

You really can make one pork fillet go a long way with this method. It is very easy to do, You can choose to add stock or half cream and half stock or just cream. When serving in restaurants,I made it with cream and a drop of stock. The coating is so good with pork fillet […]

20160821_000009

Low Fat Mustard Chicken

This amazing dish was seriously tasty, the flavours were out of this world. It is a low fat dish as it uses creme fraiche rather than cream. Try use chicken breasts on the bone as they really do give the dish a far better flavour. If you can’t get them or they are too pricey […]

20160712_192218

Zesty Thai Beef Curry (Gluten Free)

This isn’t made to any original Thai recipe, it is one I made up myself so I hope you enjoy it as much as myself and my dinner guests did. It’s a really fragrant and zesty curry due to the addition of the lime in the paste. I used lean stir fry beef strips though […]

20160531_194519(1)

Steak & Cheese Sub

I must admit I am a sucker for a good steak and cheese sub or steak and cheese anything if I am honest. I use Gruyere cheese which, in my opinion takes it to a whole new level. Feel free to change the recipe around to suit your own tastes.

20150703_212s254

20170217_212016

Chinese Beef or Chicken in Black Pepper Sauce

One of my favourite Chinese dishes this is made similar to how you will get it in Hong Kong rather that the msg filled version most people are used to here in Ireland. The addition of the honey means the sauce coats the beef with a lovely stick sauce that will make your mouth water. […]

20150819_230229

Beef Lasagna

A good, homemade lasagne is such a warm, hearty dinner. Egg lasagne sheets are a little bit more expensive but taste better and I think they’re worth it. This dish is brilliant for freezing, so you could also double the portions and freeze some for another day.

Ham & Cheese Potato Cakes

Out of all the salads I made for this website over the past couple of weeks this was everyone’s favourite. In fact, some said it was the best dish I have ever made for them. I tend to agree, it’s delicious. It takes a bit of effort and time but it’s well worth it. Change […]

Pot Roast

Pot Roast

A pot roast is one of those things many have heard of but never tried. It is such a shame that it isn’t more popular as it really is amazing and a great way to cook roast cuts that wouldn’t be as tender as the more expensive cuts like Rib or Sirloin. Round roast is […]

Pork Kebab & Apple Infused Salad

These pork kebabs are very lean and tender. The spice goes so well with the cool crisp salad. You can change the pork to chicken if you prefer. Or use grilled vegetables if you want to go vegetarian.

Shepherd’s Pie

Beef Shin Casserole in a Thyme Gravy
