Leftover Ham Pie

Need some inspiration....

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 is 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 […]

20170227_191236

Tomato Keema Curry – Minced Beef Curry

It isn’t very often you see a curry made with minced beef. Most use lamb, chicken or some sort of seafood and the few that use beef tend to use stewing beef or steak strips. The fact that this Pakistani curry is made with minced beef means that it can be made very quickly and […]

20160225_222358(1)

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 […]

20160716_201429

Lamb Burgers with Mint, Tomato & Brie

I used to serve these on a menu while working in a restaurant, they were slow to sell at first but once people began to try them they came back for them again and again. It wasn’t long before they became one of my best sellers on that menu. Lamb burgers are really tasty, the […]

20160707_193820

Mauritian Teeka Tropical Chicken Curry

I made this using a spice blend made by a friend of mine who started a little company making a lovely little range of spice blends. He lists a wide range of ingredients on the packet, few of which I had, so I made my own version from what I had in the house. I […]

20160530_190938(1)

Baked Coconut Chilli Chicken

I usually make this in a deep fat fryer but am trying to be a bit healthier these days so I baked the chicken instead. I prefer it fried but it was still tasty cooked in the oven. I served mine with Asian veggies which were lovely and have always been a personal favourite. Feel […]

20160920_193652

Leftover Ham Pie

Most us have loads of ham leftover after Christmas. This is a great recipe to use it up and one I am sure the whole family will love.

You can boil a ham to make this as well if you don’t have any leftover. It is well worth the effort.

Glazed Ham

Baked Glazed Ham

I like to cook my ham on the bone at Christmas. It has a much nicer flavour but you need a fairly large pot to do it. If you do have one large enough, make sure to soak the ham in cold water for 4 hours before cooking. Cook the ham in boiling water for […]

20160224_143448(1)

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork (Oven method included)

You have asked me for many recipes since I started my website and Facebook Page, this is the one you have requested more than any other so here it finally is. I have fine tuned my recipe so it is very easy for you to make at home using your slow cooker or oven. If […]

20151202_212844

Chicken Korma

I am a big fan of a good Indian curry esp a nice korma. I simplified this recipe so that you can easily make it at home with ingredients you can find in most supermarkets. I live in the sticks so if I can get them then anyone can.  Like most of my curry dishes […]

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.  

20170108_000718

Singapore Noodles

I made this dish for some staff at work once and my sous (second) chef hounded me for the recipe ever since. We met a while back, not long after we published my first book, the first thing he asked me was if the recipe for my Singapore noodles was in the book. He was disappointed to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Mince Stew

Savoury Mince Stew

This is and has always been my favourite dinner of all time, esp on a cold day though I would even eat it on the hottest day. My mum made it better than I ever could, she was an amazing cook. I introduced it onto a bar menu in Hong Kong a few years back […]

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 […]

20160826_192728

Tasty Turkey Bites

This is one Aine made for her family. I was lucky enough to be there the day she made them as they really are seriously good. They are a healthy family dinner and are fairly inexpensive and easy to make. You can even prepare them the night before then cook them when the next day […]

20160322_204259(0)(1)

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 […]

20160223_203820(3)

Crispy Hoisin Pork Belly

This really simple dish is well worth making, I love the crispiness of the pork belly combined with the hoisin sauce and ginger. Lidl do pork belly strips which is what I used here. They are less than €3 a pack which is great value, they don’t go far when left in strips so cut […]

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 […]

IMG_1673b

Peppered Steak Puff Pastry Slice

This really popular dish is great for a quick Sunday Lunch, make one large one  by cutting the pastry lengthwise then portion at the dinner table  or make them smaller and have for a midweek lunch. VEGETARIANS can change the steak for roasted peppers, spring onion and mushrooms and also swap the beef stock with […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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. […]

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. […]

20150916_210037(0)

Thai Tom Yum Soup

Tom Yum soup is a sour spicy Thai soup that is full of healthy ingredients and low in fat. It is fairly easy to make though does call for a lot of ingredients. I think it is well worth it as this is one of my favourite Thai dishes to make. Leave the chilli out if […]

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 […]

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 […]

Beef Koftas

Perfect for a cold winters day or to cook on the bbq on a hot summer’s day, these Beef Koftas are sensational. They are very simple if a little time consuming but can be prepared in advance and cooked when needed. The Salad is made with rocket leaves, toasted pine nuts, sunflower seeds, roasted red […]

20150907_175525

Chicken ala King (Gluten Free)

This is as tasty as it is quick to make. It is perfect for busy mums and dads who don’t have a lot of time to cook in the evenings. My mum used make it all the time after my brother, who was also a chef, thought it to her. I think it was her […]

Chicken Sundried Tomatoes

Fillet of Chicken with Italian Vegetables and Sundried Tomatoes

This is one of 4 chicken dishes I made from one pack of chicken to show that you can make a different dish for everyone in the house with very little effort. You will find, Breaded Chicken with Ham and Cheese here this was really popular with adults and kids, I must admit, I really enjoyed it […]

20160809_223603

Crispy Fried Thai Chicken

I had such a mad craving for some fried chicken the other day, so much so I had to make one of my favourites which is this Thai version I created a few years ago for a menu I wrote for a friends restaurant in London. I met my friend Sam, the restaurant owner, for […]

20160917_194659

Braised Steak in Mushroom Sauce

Comfort food at it’s best. Braised steak is amazing when cooked properly. The meat melts in your mouth and is full of flavour from the mushroom sauce it is braised in. You can make this in your slow cooker or the oven. I made it in the oven but only because I moved and don’t […]

Roasted goose

Roast Goose

Geese are free range, spending most of their lives grazing on grass in the open fields. They are a hardy bird with a rich flavour and they’re easier to cook than turkeys. We ate geese here in Ireland for centuries, long before we had ever heard of a turkey. In the earlier half of the […]

20150809_183623

Beef Curry (slow cooker)

This curry has chunks of melt in the mouth beef in a rich homemade curry sauce that’s bursting with flavour. It can be put together in a few minutes then left to simmer away in the slow cooker or a pot on the stove. I tried to make this using as few ingredients as possible […]

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, […]

20170216_163245

Mussel, Smoked Bacon and Potato Chowder

Mussels are one of my favourite things to cook. As far as seafood goes, they’re so reasonably priced and they’re ready in literally minutes. Irish mussels are juicy and plump and are so fresh and delicious you can simply steam them and let the favour speak for itself. Or if you’re looking to create a truly impressive, restaurant […]

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 […]

20170331_173554

Beef Shin Casserole in a Thyme Gravy

Beef shin is one of those cheap cuts that needs to be slow cooked to make it tender. Like most cheap cuts like this is full of flavour when cooked especially as there is a lovely marrow bone in the center which adds to the flavour. This is a slow cooker dish but can also […]

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 […]

Salt & Chilli Chicken – Dry Version

Literally thousands of you asked for this recipe so I thought it was about time I did it. It’s a very easy and quick dish to make and uses ingredients most people will have in their store cupboards. I deep fried the chicken but you can use an air-fryer or your oven for a healthier […]

Garlic & Herb Chicken Goujons

If you fancy a quick dinner, salad, sandwich or wrap then this is the recipe for you. Forget paying a fortune for processed chicken goujons in the shops as they have all sorts of rubbish added to them, most are made with reformed chicken, which is all the leftover bits formed to look like chicken, […]

20160618_120118

Chicken & Vegetable Soup (Gluten Free)

I made this using my own homemade chicken stock which always makes a soup so much better. It adds a lovely flavour to any soup esp if you use the bones from a roast chicken to make it. You can choose to add any veg you like though I wouldn’t use cabbage instead I would […]

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 […]

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 […]

20160308_192700(1)

Shepherd’s Pie

This is my take on a classic shepherd’s pie. I change the topping to make it quicker and easier to make for days when I am too busy to make a pot of mash, though if I am honest, I mainly do it to cut down on the washing up, which I hate doing. The […]

Beef Kebabs in Pitta Bread

Most of us love a take away yet they cost a fortune, esp if you have to buy for the whole family. I often make these for friends after we come back from a night on the beer. They are fairly easy to make esp as most of the work is done in advance so […]

Beef & Ricotta Meatballs with Tomato Sauce

I never was a fan of meatballs, I found them to be mostly bland and dry when I tried them. I spent a lot of my earlier career working in Italian restaurants and found they were the same even then. So I came up with this recipe while working as head chef in a little restaurant […]

Chicken Ham and Cheese

Breaded Chicken with Ham & Cheese

This Chicken Dish is great for all the family and especially loved by kids. Double coating the chicken in breadcrumbs ensures the cheese doesn’t drip out when cooking.
