Some recipes to share...

Seeing that I haven't been crafting lately and St. Patrick's day is only a week a way, I thought I would post some Irish themed recipes over the next week. Here's the first one:


Guinness Burgers

5lbs of beef mince, 
1 small onion finely chopped,
1 clove of garlic grated, 
¼ can of Guinness draught
2 tbsp tomato sauce or paste, 
salt, 
ground black pepper


Put all the ingredients in a bowl, add half the Guinness
and mix well.
Roll into 10 burger shapes
Place the burgers onto a hot BBQ and cook for 6-7 minutes
Brush the burgers with the remaining Guinness
Turn burgers and cook for a further 6-7 minutes
Serve in a warm bun with all your favourite trimmings

*These can be made on a pan instead of a bbq

and here's another:


Irish Porter Cake

450g plain flour 
1 tsp grated nutmeg
1 tsp mixed spice 
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt 
225g butter
225g brown sugar 
450g raisins
75g candied peel 
2 eggs
1 x 330ml bottle of porter/stout (e.g. Guinness)

Preheat oven to 180c/350f. Line the sides & base of a 20cm round
cake tin with greaseproof paper. Sieve the first four ingredients
together. Rub in the butter, then stir in the sugar, raisins & candied
peel. Whisk the porter/stout & the eggs together. Pour into the dry
ingredients & mix well. Empty into the prepared tin & bake for about
2 hours. The cake is cooked when a skewer inserted into the centre
comes out clean. Allow to sit in the tin for 20 minutes before turning
out onto a wire rack.



Thanks for stopping by :)
