Ethnic Meals
Recipes and meal time ideas


The site concentrates on British recipes from Scotland, England and Wales with a few recipes from Ireland, India and France "thrown in". Primarily designed to provide ethnic recipes and meals, whether you are looking for an unusual meal, a straightforward meat, fish or poultry meal dish or even a sweet pudding recipe then hopefully you will find it here.

You can search for any recipe using a variety of ways including region, country, base ingredient or "pot luck" all from the drop down menu at the top of each page.

I would like to think that all diets and paletes are catered for. If you have a suggestion or even a recipe that you would like to submit, please don't hesitate to contact me via the contact us page.

Traditional Scottish Beef with Blue Cheese Recipe

This may initially appear to be a strange combination for a recipe. Cheese and meat don't always blend well together (think of some burgers you have had!!) but in this dish they should. If you can obtain it try a good Scottish Blue Cheese (such as Lanark Blue). If you can't, why don't you support your local farmers market?

Rich Pork Hotpot

4 lean beef steaks
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for frying)
1 red onion (sliced)
2 teaspoons Scottish Mustard
4 oz blue cheese
4 tablespoons soft cream cheese
2 tablespoons milk
Seasoning (salt/pepper)

heat the oil and fry the steaks to the personal taste of those eating (rare, medium, well etc.) Remove from pan and set aside in a dish which will retain the heat (placing in oven MAY dry them out). Fry the onion until soft but NOT brown. Stir in both cheeses, the milk and the mustard and cook on a gentle heat until completely melted.

Serve the steaks with the sauce poured over them, along with a potato dish of your choice. New boiled potatoes?

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
