This is a really hearty soup that’s cheap to make and that can be thrown together in a few minutes. It’s perfect for a cold winter’s day or even a school or work lunch.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]

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. […]

It doesn’t come much easier than this, 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 only it uses peppers and paprika […]
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.
