Instructions
  1. Oil or butter your slow cooker insert. From the author of this recipe: "Trust me, don't skip this step...you'll hate yourself later if you don't." I think this step is quite important.
  2. Add the beef to the slow cooker. In a large bowl, mix together the canned soup, gravy mix, and soup mix with 4 cups of water, pour soup mixture over the beef.
  3. Cover and cook for 6-8 hours, looking for very tender beef.
  4. About 30 to 90 minutes before serving, turn the slow cooker to High setting, add the mushrooms and egg noodles.
  5. For the egg noodles, if you have frozen egg noodles, add them as is, frozen, with the mushrooms. If you only have dried egg noodles, cook those in a pot of boiling water until just before tender, drain, and add those.
  6. Stir and squish down the noodles so they are covered with the liquid. Cover and continue to cook on High setting for 30-90 minutes to either cook the frozen noodles or heat through the cooked noodles.
  7. Serve.
Recipe Notes

The beef will cost about 200 Baht, if you can source this locally in a village market, you may get it cheaper. For 8 servings, this is about 74 cents per serving.

  1. Add a splash of cooking oil to a large pan and heat it up, season the beef with salt and pepper to your liking. Once pan is hot, brown the meat on all sides in the skillet for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  2. Transfer the meat to the slow cooker, sprinkle the dry dressing and soup packets over the beef. Top with the 1/2 block of butter and the peppers.
  3. Cover and cook on the Low setting for 8 hours. At the end of the cooking time, the beef should be fall apart tender, shred with two forks and serve on mashed potatoes or even on a roll with a slice of Provolone cheese.
Recipe Notes

Beef will run about 150 Baht/kilo, large cities should be able to get a chuck roast, out of the way places, like where I am at, I will try this with just 1-2 large chunks of beef. 300 Baht for 2 kilos would be about $1.47 per serving.

Instructions
  1. In your slow cooker, stir in all the ingredients together except the beef, water, and cream cheese.
  2. Once combined add the meat and stir that in. Mixture should be thick and covering the beef, add 1/4 cup of water to thin the mixture slightly if needed. Photo shows 500 grams so far of beef roughly cubed.
  3. Cook on Low setting for 8 hours, no need to lift the lid, just let it cook and the slow cooker will tenderize that beef.
  4. About an hour before the beef is ready, cut up the cream cheese into small cubes and let it soften.
  5. When the beef is cooked, and tender, if not tender at 8 hours, continue cooking for another hour or so. About 10 minutes before serving, set the slow cooker on high setting and stir in the cream cheese and stir to mix that into the beef mixture until combined, cover for a few minutes.
  6. Boil the noodles in a pot of water until tender, drain. Now at this point you can mix into the meat mixture or serve with noodles topped with the meat mixture.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 200 Baht/kilo for the beef. Think local raised, anything you buy in a store will cost much more. For 6 servings this is about 98 cents per serving.
