Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C. Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling salted water until just tender, drain well and return to the pot.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium heat and melt the butter. Add the shallot and garlic and cook until fragrant and softened, about 3 minutes. Add flour and whisk until combined and golden brown, about 1 minute. Add milk and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Simmer 2 minutes, until sauce is thickened and smooth.
  3. Stir in 1/2 of the white cheddar and mozzarella until melted then remove from heat.
  4. Add the sauce and crab meat to the pot with cooked pasta and stir until completely combined. Pour into a large baking dish, sprinkle with the remaining Cheddar and parsley and bake until bubbly, about 20 minutes.
  5. Serve.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I get a price on 500 grams of lump crab meat. I will say fair cost for now.

Variant: I will play around with this also using imitation crab which would be a cost saver as well.

  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C. Bring to a boil a large pot of salted water, add the pasta and cook until just tender, drain.
  2. Add butter to the same pot and melt over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about a minute. Sprinkle with flour and cook until golden brown, about a minute more. Add milk and bring to a simmer. Let thicken then add 1 cup mozzarella, the Gouda, and Parmesan and stir until melted, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the macaroni and stir until completely coated, then stir in the chopped pepperoni, 1/2 cup pizza sauce, oregano, and crushed red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Transfer to a baking dish and spoon remaining pizza sauce on top. Top with remaining mozzarella and pepperoni slices. Bake until cheese is melted and golden brown and the pepperoni crispy, about 15 minutes.
  5. Garnish with basil and Parmesan and serve.
Recipe Notes

Only thing that is expensive is the cheese. Figure about 120 Baht for the Mozzarella, 90 Baht for the Gouda, and 90 Baht for the Parmesan. For 6 servings, this is about $1.47 per serving.

  2. Prepare your grill for medium hot coals. Remove the chops from the dressing and discard the dressing. Grill for 12-16 minutes, turning once, about 6-8 minutes per side, remove the chops from the grill and let them rest for 3 minutes, serve.
  3. You can also broil the chops for 12-16 minutes, turning once half way through, if you have no access to a grill.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this yet. I will use a large pork loin and slice chops from that. For now I will estimate this is fair value.

  1. Preheat your oven to 140 C. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the salt, black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, oregano, and brown sugar.
  3. Trim the ends of the strip of ribs to remove any odd or cartilage pieces, lay the strips on the baking sheet, cut the strips in half if needed. This is the type of ribs I use from Tesco.
  4. Season both sides of the ribs with the seasoning, arrange meaty side up, cover with another sheet of foil. Bake for 2 hours.
  5. Increase the oven temp to 200 C, carefully remove the foil covering the ribs, spread BBQ sauce evenly over the top of the ribs, place the long beans along the sides of the pan, season the long beans with salt.
  6. Bake for another 10 minutes. Cut the ribs into single bone pieces.
  7. Serve the ribs with the long beans, complete meal.
Recipe Notes

Pork ribs are about 115 Baht/kilo. 1 1/2 kilo would be about 173 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about $1.27 per serving, over all good price for a quality meal, after all, who does not like ribs.
