Instructions
  1. Heat a large non stick pan (I use a pot) with a splash of olive oil, and add the onion and garlic, cook until the onion is turning translucent.
  2. then add the beef, breaking it up with a spatula as it cooks. Drain any fat. To the beef, now add the 1 1/2 cups stock, bouillon cube, salt, pepper, basil, and parsley. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the 1/4 cup cold stock to a measuring cup and stir in the cornstarch. Cold makes it easier to mix without lumps. Pour this into hamburger mixture and simmer for about two minutes, stirring often, until thickened.
  4. Serve over mashed potatoes with your choice of sides and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 150 Baht for the ground beef. For 4 servings, this is about $1.10 per serving.

Shortcut: Seasoned Salt.

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C.
  2. Add the beef, the contents of the box of stuffing mix (the bread and spice mix), or the dry mixture if made from a shortcut, and the milk, in a large mixing bowl. Mix to combine everything.
  3. Form into a loaf in a large baking dish or pack into two loaf pans. Cover with foil.
  4. Bake for 1 hour.
  5. Remove from oven, let rest 2 minutes, slice and serve. Mashed potatoes and gravy and a vegetable on the side would be perfect.

Figure about 300 Baht for 1 kilo ground beef. For 6 servings, this is about $1.48 per serving. Make this out of ground pork for about half the cost.

Shortcut: Stove Top Stuffing.

Variants: 1. Use ground pork in place of ground beef. 2. Use loaf pans or a casserole and pour a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup over the top. 3. Shape into meatballs and place in a baking dish, then pour a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup over the top.

For the Chorizo Burgers
Servings: servings
Instructions
For the Cucumber Slaw
  1. Slice the cucumbers and onion as thinly as you can, think mandolin, perfect for this. Add the cucumber and onion slices to a bowl and add the olive oil, vinegar and mix well. Taste and season with salt and pepper as desired.
  2. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 20 minutes to let the flavor develop.
For the Chorizo Burgers
  1. The Spanish chorizo can be bulk or in casings. If bulk, just crumble it apart as fine as you can. If in casings, remove the casings and chop or crumble apart as fine as you can. One thought, if you grind your own beef, simply run the casing version, with the casings removed, through your grinder.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the beef, chorizo, onion, and garlic. Mix well but do not over work the meat, over worked ground beef = tough burgers.
  3. Divide the meat into 4, 5, or 6 patties, make a small indent in center of each patty with your thumb, this prevents the burger from going dome shaped or curling.
  4. Heat a thick walled non stick pan and melt the butter. You want the pan hot completely.
  5. Cook in batches if needed. Add patties to the pan and cook 5 minutes on the first side, flip and cook 4 more minutes for medium rare burgers. If you prefer burgers more done than that, just increase the times by a minute or so.
  6. Remove to plates, top each burger with 1/2 tablespoon of mayo and then some of the cucumber slaw. Corn on the cob and potato salad come to mind for great sides.
Recipe Notes

For the beef, about 150 Baht, for the chorizo, I can only price what I have made myself, never store bought for me, so go with about 35 Baht for the pork. For 4 servings, this is about $1.36 per serving.

Shortcut: Spanish Chorizo.

  5. Serve with steamed rice on the side.

I state basic for this as it uses store bought gravy packets or you can make the 'store bought' packets yourself, but you will dress these up with some with other ingredients.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C.
  2. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl, using a large sturdy spoon, mix thoroughly but gently, you are not trying to make a cake batter here. An overly worked meatloaf may result in a tougher meatloaf.
  3. Place the mixed beef in a 7x11 baking dish and shape into a loaf. Bake for 50-56 minutes or until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear. For meatloaf I use a thermometer to verify the minimum safe temp, for ground beef, you want a minimum of 71 C or 160 F. When done, remove from oven.
  4. Let the meatloaf rest for 5 minutes, then slice and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

For the beef, figure about 200 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about 98 cents per serving.

Variants: 1. Instead of using ketchup, us V8 juice. 2. Before baking, a mixture of ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard spread over the top. 3. About 10 minutes before the meatloaf is done, spread some V8 juice over the top and continue to bake until done. 4. Add diced bell pepper. 5. Replace the oats with crushed butter crackers. 6. Add chopped mushrooms.

There will be a few variants listed for this that I think are fitting and adds a bit of international flair to this dish. This is a make what you want recipe, no servings are given, and no quantities for ingredients are given, use your judgement and go from there, season to taste with some of the ingredients.

  1. In a large non stick pan, brown the minced beef, grind this yourself using the course plate, the wagon wheel. Drain the fat, but keep in mind, there is flavor in that, so leave at least half of that, and it is a natural fat so it is healthy for those keeping track.
  2. Add the onion, carrot, stock, and mustard, simmer for about 1 1/2 hours, longer the better, if getting dry, add more stock. This is one of those recipes that is simmered longer time the flavor develops more.
  3. Mix your slurry with equal parts of cornstarch and cold water, stir into the mince, simmer to thicken the gravy.
  4. When thickened to your liking, serve. Traditional would be with peas (preferred) and either mashed or boiled potatoes.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I settle on a serving size. This is low cost however.

Variants: 1. Even Mick stated this would be great with chips (fries). 2. Over pasta. 3. Over rice.

The original title of this recipe was very misleading, called sirloin tips. First off, tips are scraps from roast cuts, aka, stew meat, but 'tips' seems to be the buzzword this year. The other misleading thing was the recipe called for a sirloin steak, cut into pieces, and those pieces suddenly became sirloin tips. I am not going to state any particular type of steak or cut to use, especially for where I live, just go with a cheap cut of beef. When I make this I will get exact measurements as well.
