Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Lightly butter your slow cooker insert, place the vegetables in the bottom. Sprinkle with one packet of onion soup mix.
  2. Place the beef on the vegetables, sprinkle with the second packet of soup mix. Pour in the broth around the outside. Really just takes a cup of broth, gets the steam going.
  3. Cover and cook on Low setting for 8-10 hours. Check at 8 hours for tenderness. If fork tender, remove and serve, if not tender, continue cooking and checking each hour until tender, for local Thai beef, trust me, 9-10 hours and you will be happy with the results.
  4. If you would like to make an Au Jus dipping sauce, say for roast beef sandwiches, remove the beef and vegetables from the slow cooker and add a touch less than 1/4 cup Worcestershire and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder to the slow cooker juices, mix well and serve in small bowls for dipping.
Recipe Notes

The beef would cost about 300 Baht for 1 1/2 kilo. For 6 servings, this is about $1.47 per serving.

For the Glaze
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, mix together all the Glaze ingredients, set aside.
  2. Grease your slow cooker insert with butter.
  3. In the slow cooker insert, mix together the eggs, milk, breadcrumbs, onion, and sage. Add the beef and mix well, use your hands for this. Once mixed, shape into loaf in the center of the insert, with about a 1 finger width of space on the sides of the insert. There, wasn't that easy, and no mixing bowl to wash.
  4. Spoon the glaze over the top of the loaf.
  5. Cook on Low setting for 6 hours.
  6. Slice and serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable for a complete meal. Think meatloaf sandwiches for leftovers.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 200 Baht for the beef. For 6 servings this is about 98 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Let the roast come to room temp by sitting it on the counter for 30 minutes. Heat a large non stick pan on medium high heat and add the olive oil. Sprinkle the roast all over with 3 teaspoons of the kosher salt and the black pepper.
  2. Add the roast to the pan and sear on all sides, rotating the roast every 3 or 4 minutes to brown all sides of the roast. When the roast is browned, remove and place in your slow cooker.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients except the parsley. Cook on Low setting for 8 hours.
  4. To serve, remove the roast from the slow cooker and let rest 10 minutes. Slice across the grain, mashed potatoes, the veggies from the pot and gravy over the potatoes, garnish with fresh chopped parsley, sounds perfect.
Recipe Notes

For the beef, figure about 300 Baht/1 1/2 kilo roast. For 8 servings, this is about $1.10 per serving.

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.
