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.
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 […]
Sometimes the best meals are the cheapest to make, especially when it comes to using cheaper cuts of meat like chicken drumsticks and thighs. Any meat cooked on the bone will always have a far better flavour due to the flavour the bones give to the dish when cooking. This is a great one for […]

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 […]
I love this dish, to me it is the ultimate comfort food. It’s dead simple to make, simply add all the ingredients to your slow cooker or casserole dish then cook for 4-8 hours depending on what way you choose to cook it. Change the steak to stewing beef and leave the wine out to […]
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.
