  1. Place enough flour in a large bowl to coat the liver. Add salt and pepper to taste. Slice liver and dredge in seasoned flour.
  2. Place olive oil in a large skillet and brown both sides of the liver over medium high heat.
  3. Place sliced onions in the skillet with the liver and pour beef broth on top of liver and onions.
  4. Cover and simmer on low until onions are tender and broth forms a nice gravy.
  5. Serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I buy beef liver again, this should be low cost though.

Variants: Add sliced mushrooms when you add the onions. If the gravy is minimal, stir in some milk.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. To make the dough, put the flour in a large bowl then gradually add the water, mixing to a firm dough. Knead lightly for a minute or two, then wrap in plastic wrap and put in the fridge while you make the filling.
  2. Mix the meat with the onion, garlic, caraway seeds, and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Take the dough out of the fridge and divide into 16 pieces, then roll one out to a 10 cm (4 inch) diameter circle. Place a couple of heaped teaspoons of the meat mix on half of the circle but away from the edge, then fold one side over the meat. Press the edges together, then fold the sealed edge over again, crimping as you go. Repeat with the remaining meat and dough.
  3. In a wok or large frying pan, heat the oil to around 180 C, or when a piece of bread sizzles and turns golden in less than a minute. Gently lower the khuushuur into the oil in batches of 3 or 4, and cook for around 4 minutes until golden. Once all the khuushuur are cooked, place on a foil lined baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes in the oven, then serve.

I have made this countless times when growing up, probably weekly for years, but we used venison for this. Key thing here is equal amounts of beef and potatoes with an onion or two thrown in. Servings, prep, and cook times are approximate for now until I make this here using an electric meat grinder.

  1. Cut the beef, regardless of how you cooked it into chunks that fit in the hopper of your grinder. Cut the potatoes into quarters and for big potatoes, cut the quarters in half as well. Cut the onion(s) into quarters and cut each piece in half.
  2. Run everything through your grinder, chuck of beef, potato, onion, until everything is ground.
  3. Heat the cooking oil, bacon fat would be perfect, in a large frying pan, preferably a cast iron, on medium high to high heat.
  4. Add the hash to the frying pan so that a half an inch of hash covers the bottom of the pan. If you have more hash to cook, do so in separate batches. Brown the hash, stirring only infrequently at first to make sure that the hash has an opportunity to brown well.
  5. As you cook the hash, add pinches of salt and fresh ground pepper. Do this a couple of times with each batch of hash. Cook for at least 10 minutes and until the hash is well browned. Serve with ketchup, important.
Recipe Notes

The beef would cost about 100 Baht/500 grams, for 4 servings, this is 75 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C.
  2. Mix all of the meatball ingredients, except the Mozzarella cheese and pasta sauce, and form your meatballs, not too large. Pour 1-2 tablespoons oil on a foil lined baking sheet and bake the meatballs for 20 minutes.
  3. Lower oven temp to 190 C.
  4. Spoon some sauce into the bottom of a large baking dish. Place meatballs on top of the sauce. Cover with more sauce and dress the top up with plenty of mozzarella. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Remove foil and bake an additional 20 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through and cheese is browning. For the last few minutes you can raise the oven temperature to help with browning.
  6. Serve on pasta or rice.
Recipe Notes

Estimate about 150 Baht for ground beef, less if using beef and pork mix. I cannot price Parmesan cheese in a block yet, I will estimate 150 Baht, for the Mozzarella cheese, I would go with 400 grams at 280 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about $2.85 per serving.

  1. For the meat, feel free to use ground beef, pork, chicken, or turkey. If using beef or pork, use beef or pork stock instead of chicken stock.
  2. Add the ground meat to a large mixing bowl then add the breadcrumbs, milk, egg, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, onion, and garlic. Stir or use hands to mix. Shape mixture into 6 evenly sized balls.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. At the meatballs and press to flatten slightly. Cook the patties until browned for about 5 minutes each side.
  4. Add the chicken stock to the skillet and continue cooking the patties, turning as needed until they are cooked through, maybe 5 minutes more.
  5. Serve with mashed potatoes and gravy and a vegetable, complete meal.
Recipe Notes

The highest cost would be using beef and I will say 100 Baht/500 grams. For 6 servings, this is about 50 cents per serving. Other ground meats would be less.

Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. For the meat, if you live in one of the larger cities you should be able to easily get round steak from a butcher shop. If you cannot find round steak, go with a large piece of beef and cut a few steaks off from that, across the grain. You will have to tenderize yourself with either the hammer or needle type or use the back of a cleaver.
  2. Cut the tenderized beef into small pieces to make it easier to work with. Place the beef in a deep dish, and place 3 more deep dishes on the counter, you are going to make an assembly line.
  3. In the dish to the right of the meat, mix the egg and milk, next dish to the right, mix the flour, salt as desired, 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper, and the final dish is clean and empty.
  4. While the pan is heating, take one piece of meat, sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper to your liking then dip the meat into flour mixture, and turn to coat, then dip into the egg and milk mixture and turn to coat, then place the meat back into the flour mixture. Place the breaded meat on the clean plate. Repeat for the rest of the meat.
  5. Heat the oil in a large skillet, a cast iron pan would be perfect for this. and add the butter as well. When hot, not smoking but hot when tested with a a sprinkle of flour into the oil, then it is ready.
  6. Cook the meat, about 3 pieces at a time until the edges start to turn golden brown, about 2-3 minutes each side. Once golden brown on both sides and cooked through, remove to a plate lined with paper towels and cover with foil to keep warm, repeat until all the meat is cooked.
  7. Once all the meat is cooked, pour off the oil to a heatproof bowl and return the pan to the stove over medium low heat. Add 1/4 cup of the reserved oil back to the pan and let that heat up.
  8. When the oil is hot, gently whisk the oil and sprinkle in the flour and whisk until you have a golden brown paste. Then slowly pour in 3 cups of milk, whisking constantly, then add salt and pepper to your liking. Keep whisking until the gravy is smooth and thick, about 5 to 10 minutes, add more milk if the gravy becomes too thick. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
  9. Serve as dinner with mashed potatoes and pour gravy over both or serve as breakfast with eggs, biscuits, and fried potatoes. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

I cannot really price this based on using round steak. But for regular beef, I will say roughly 300 Baht for 1 1/2 kilos. For 6 servings, this is about $1.47 per serving. Fair cost but would make a nice once in a while meal.
