Foo-Young

Chicken Egg Foo Young

Egg Foo Young is an amazing dish but unfortunately every time I have had it in a Chinese here it has been terrible and more like a bad omelette than a delicious Egg Foo Young should be. I am not a fan of the taste of eggs, I will only eat the yolk usually. This […]

20160627_221850

Poached Pear & Blue Cheese Salad

Anyone who knows me knows I’m cheese mad. I love all kinds, especially the amazing selection we have here in Ireland. Cashel Blue is one of my favourite blue cheeses. The combination of flavours here match so well they have to be tried to be believed. This will make a fantastic snack with a good […]

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 […]

20150922_200932

Slow Cooked Thai Coconut Chicken Curry (gf)

This is one of my favourite curries of all time. This is made with chicken drumsticks and thighs rather than breast meat. They give a far better flavour esp when slow cooked. This is made using a shop bought paste as it makes it easier for the majority of people who don’t have the time […]

20160304_222750(1)

Smoky Beef & Chorizo Stew

Is there anything better than a bowl of steaming hot stew on a cold and wet day? This is a twist on a classic beef stew. The smoky flavour from the smoked paprika and spicy chorizo brings the dish to a whole new level, creating a dept of flavour that will leave you wanting seconds […]

20150802_191117

Sage & Onion Stuffing

WE all love a good stuffing, be in in a sandwich or with the Sunday roast. This one is very easy to make and can be made in a matter of a few minutes. I strongly advise making your breadcrumbs if you have a blender or food processor as they are a fraction of the price. […]

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 […]

20150926_172351

Thai Red Chicken Curry

I love Thai food. It is so wonderfully fragrant and really healthy. This is an authentic recipe (as authentic as it can be as some ingredients are impossible to get here in Ireland) made using a homemade paste. It is time consuming but really is worth the effort. I am also including the method for […]

20180518_161639-1000x562

Chicken Fajita Sandwich Filler

So many people have gotten in touch asking for lunch recipes, many saying they are tired of the same old things week after week. If you are feeding a family or just yourself it really is worth the effort to make a good lunch. Eating a good lunch to suit your lifestyle will help you […]

20160625_201019

Chinese Salad & BBQ Pork Belly

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 […]

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.

IMG_2010

Chicken Curry (chip shop style)

So many of you asked me for a simple and quick chicken curry, this is one of two I made. This one is for those who love to cook but want something quick. This one uses almost the same base as the Basic Chicken Curry Recipe, the addition of a few extra herbs and spices […]

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. […]

20180518_163724-1000x562

Chicken, Cheddar & Spring Onion Sandwich Spread

As many of you know I’m a big cheese fan so you won’t be surprised to know this is one of my favourites. I prefer it with mayonnaise but made this one with creme fraishe. You can use either, I’ll include each in the recipe. This goes great with in wrap, sandwich or on an […]

20150706_210632

Chinese Satay Chicken

Satay chicken is one of those dishes that you can have anytime, even if not having a chinese meal. They go great on the bbq, as a starter, main course or as a handy snack. I use chunky peanut butter however you can use smooth if you prefer. I made skewers this time, if you […]

Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Simple Slow Cooker Beef Goulash

It doesn’t come much easier than this Slow Cooker Beef Goulash. It’s a family dinner without having to stand over the stove for ages so you can go about your busy day. Simply put all the ingredients into the slow cooker and walk away for the day. Beef Goulash is very similar to a stew […]

BordBiaLogo

Bord Bia – Roast Lamb with Tapenade & Spring Onions

Sunday lunch in my mums was always such a treat, she loved lamb and so each sunday she used cook a leg of lamb for the family. She always did it the same way, not that we complained as she was a master at bringing out the best flavours in any dish esp a lamb […]

20150703_212s254

Crispy & Sticky Sesame Chilli Chicken

It’s as if you have a high class chinese restaurant in your home! All I can say, is you have to make this now, it is an amazing dish and like all my recipes it is dead easy to make.I am thoroughly enjoying the one I made that you see in the pictures as I […]

20150923_201108

Thai Beef with Broccoli in Oyster Sauce

So many people have asked me to cook this dish. It is one of the easiest stir fries you will ever cook. The end result is a fantastic meal that will cost you so little to make compared with what you would pay in a take away. I used Aldi’s Minute steak strips to make […]

20150731_184855

Crispy Peking Duck with Pancakes and Hoi Sin

I, like so many others, love this dish, the only problem is its so expensive from chinese restaurants and take aways and the supermarket versions I have tried are terrible. Most Chinese take aways buy theirs from the Asian stores which is ok but nothing as nice as making your own. If you don’t want […]

f

Fillet of Beef in Hot Garlic

This is one of my personal favourites. It is something I tend to order if ordering a take away. I stopped ordering the fillet of beef version as most times it wasn’t fillet steak as stated on the menu, so I ended up getting big slices of chewy beef instead of the melt in the […]

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 […]

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 […]

20150810_155917

Chicken & Smoked Bacon Slice

Comfort food doesn’t get much better than this, it is rich and creamy and tastes amazing. I made this today for a photoshoot. Mick, the photographer is known as a very picky eater who wouldn’t touch a pepper. He watched me make this while also taking photos of each step. When it was ready, he […]

Roast Beef

The Perfect Roast Beef & Roast Gravy

Sunday Roast is one of my favourite meals to cook and nothing says Sunday Roast better than a good joint of Roast Beef I used Rib Roast which is my favourite. I wanted to cook it on the bone but couldn’t get it. If you want a rib roast on the bone speak with your […]

20160108_142440(1)

Pad Thai Gluten Free

Pad Thai is probably one of the best known Thai dishes after green and red curries. It is really quick to make and really healthy. It is easy to mess it up so the timing is really important. You should get all the ingredients ready before you start cooking or you will end up with […]

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 […]

Lamb-Casserole

Slow Cooker Lamb Casserole

This casserole is extremely easy to make and only uses 6 easy to find ingredients and some water. You can choose to use chicken, if you do cook the sauce, without the chicken, then add the chicken breasts, 1 per person, for the last 1.5 hours on high or 3 on low.

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 […]

20180427_215216-1000x562

Coconut, Ginger & Chilli Soup with Grilled Chicken & Prawn

It is hard to believe that a soup like the one here can be made in a matter of minutes with zero cooking skills or experience required. This is definately the case here. All you need is a food processor or if you want to you can even use a store bought curry paste like […]

20170603_140324

Popcorn Chicken with Lime and Mint Mayo

Here is a brilliant gluten free snack or lunch that’s great to share and the kids will love it. The main batter ingredient is polenta, which is sometimes known as cornmeal. It’s used a great deal in the Mediterranean, and in the states where it’s known as grits. I have found it in larger supermarkets […]

Lamb Rogan Josh

Lamb Rogan Josh

This curry is really simple to make so please don’t feel daunted by all the ingredients. Make sure you marinade the lamb the night before to get the best flavor. It really does make a big difference Take your time and follow the simple method to make it for your friends and family, I guarantee, […]

Meatballs

Italian Meatballs

A real family favourite and inexpensive to make, great for making in bulk and freezing esp when one of the stores has a good quality mince on offer. You can change the meat to minced pork or lamb. Half pork and half beef mince is also great. You can really make the mince go further […]

20150729_010319

Honey Roasted Duck

Succulent Duck with a crispy honey glazed skin cooked to perfection is great in so many recipes. My personal favourite are the many Asian dishes that can easily be made once you have the Duck roasted. After I post this I will make two dishes out of one Duck, both really simple and extremely tasty. […]

20160923_183226

Liam’s Thai Chicken or Fish Curry

I love to make and eat Thai food. It is so fresh and filled with wonderful flavours like ginger, garlic, coriander, lemongrass and loads more. I have covered most of the Thai recipes we all know from a Thai red curry to a Massaman curry and even Tom Yum Soup which is a personal favourite. […]

Bacon and Mustard sauce

Bacon Steaks, Mustard Cream & Sauté Cabbage

An upmarket Bacon and Cabbage with a delicious mustard cream that is sure to keep the family happy or the guests impressed. Serve it anytime though best as a Sunday lunch or similar.  

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 […]

spice devils

Southern Fried Chicken

Fried chicken has always been a real family favourite esp with the kids. I love to make a big plate of it then simply stick in in the centre of the table with some big bowls of coleslaw and salad so everyone can dig in and help themselves. I highly recommend getting a food temperature […]

20150620_224548

Minced Beef and Onion Pie, Cashel Blue Infused Pastry

The Cashel Blue Cheese pastry in this pie takes it to a whole new level, it is hard to roll without it breaking but it is forgiving and can easily be patched together if needed. Everyone loves a nice pie, esp me as it brings back some great memories of when I was a kid […]

20150802_143643(1)

Chicken & Black Bean Sauce

So here it is by very popular demand. it seems to be a massive favourite of a lot of people so it was a big challenge to create an easy to follow recipe that you can make at home. Of course getting it to taste great and authentic would be impossible without fermented black beans. […]

Chicken and Mushroom Pie

Chicken & Mushroom Pie

If you asked me to choose my favourite dish my response would be, Pie any pie. This comes from my mum who used to make the most amazing mince tart, which was my all time favourite. I’ve always made fantastic shortcrust pastry, a skill I learnt from my mum. To me, no other shortcrust pastry […]

Thai Crispy Minced Beef Parcels

This is super easy to make and super quick, the best bit is it is one of the tastiest dishes I have posted to date. The combination of flavours and textures are amazing. It is important that you cook the mince first and keep cooking it until it starts to turn crispy, so until it […]

Cottage Pie Recipe

Cottage Pie

Cottage pie is a great dish as it can be made up to 1 day in advance then heated when needed. It can also be frozen for up to 3 weeks. It is a sure fired family favourite, freezes well and is the perfect comfort food. You can free it in one go or as […]

Ham & Cheese Potato Cakes

My mum used make the most amazing potato cakes for tea whenever she had some potatoes left over. We all loved them. She used to make them into triangles and pan fry them in butter. I used eat them with nothing but a bit of ketchup and I loved every bite. She inspired me to […]

IMG_0958

Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken Tikka Masala is easily the best known of curries and a firm favourite for most. This is an authentic recipe that uses herbs and spices rather than a shop bought paste. It takes time to make and also time to master. It is up to you if you want to take the time to […]

Marinaded Pork Chopc

Marinaded Pork Chops

I choose to serve these with one of my favourite Salads, esp when cooked on the BBQ on a nice summers day. For those days when it’s not so sunny and you crave comfort food then go with Creamy Mash, some nice veg and a bit of Bisto Gravy or a nice Mushroom Sauce goes great […]

20160124_192047(1)

Roast Rack of Pork

This dish is absolutely delicious with the White Pudding and Apple stuffing from page. Make the stuffing as per the instructions and place underneath the pork for the last hour of cooking. This means the meat juices will be absorbed by the stuffing which will give the stuffing a wonderful flavour. Just like my Roast […]

Mushroom, Roasted Garlic, Smoked Pancetta & Parmesan Soup

Tandoori Chicken Salad

Chicken, Bacon & Mushroom Pie – gluten free

Lamb Burgers with Mint, Tomato & Brie
