Thais love hotdogs, they have as many brands of hotdogs as they do brands of canned fish and rice. Now 90% of the Thai hotdogs are pure rubbish, but there is a few very good brands out there. Hotdogs are nothing more than sausages, however with modern processing and the poor choices of fillers and casings, the consistency in taste is quite lacking. For those in Thailand and the rest of the world, use good quality beef or chicken hotdogs. This is a typical side/snack served with beer in the evening. Serve with rice for a complete meal.

Yep, I can already hear the Pepperoni Gods complaining about this recipe, but I have made this on 16 Jan 2017 and it is good. The end goal for this is to use on a pizza or three. This does not have the red color to it since no curing salt or nitrites were used, but the flavor is spot on. I will be making some pizzas later this week with this.

Instructions
  1. Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix them together with your hands. Divide the meat mixture into two portions and roll them into logs about 1 1/2 inch diameter. Wrap the rolls in aluminum foil and refrigerate them overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 100 C. Place the rolls on a wire rack, without the foil and put the rack on a baking sheet. Bake the pepperoni rolls for 6 hours, turning them every hour. Remove the pepperoni from the oven and allow it to cool as the fat continues to drain. Store the pepperoni in the refrigerator and slice it as needed.
  3. Finished and cooling. There is no red color to this as there is no preservatives or curing salt used, bonus. Store in the fridge for about 3 days.
Recipe Notes

Ground beef, I am taking a good guess at 200 Baht/kilo. How much this makes for a pizza, I have no idea until I test this out.

Liquid smoke is in the original recipe, I myself would shy away from that and go with just cumin.

Instructions
  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan, add sausages and cook, turning regularly, for 5 minutes or until browned, you are browning, not cooking through. Remove from the pan and slice thickly. Reduce heat to medium on the pan.
  2. Add onions and peppers to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally for 3 - 4 minutes or until soft.
  3. Add rice, water, tomatoes, stock, and sausages. Stir to combine. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium and allow to simmer, covered for 15 - 20 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and set aside, covered for 15 minutes (this allows rice to complete cooking). Season with salt and pepper. Spoon hotpot into serving bowls, and a salad on the side.
Recipe Notes

Sausage produced in Thailand can be very inexpensive, pork sausage that is. At Makro we can get English Beef Sausage for about 200 Baht/kilo, we can also pick up smoked and spicy sausage for 200 Baht per 1 kilo, or 100 baht per this recipe. So this recipe meets the $1 or less per person per meal, even with a salad.
