Instructions
  1. Marinate the pork chops with the Italian dressing, cover and place in the fridge for 2-4 hours.
  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.

Ok, this sounds incredibly good, sort of like a meatloaf with cheese inside but this is rolled up. No measurements are given, I will come up with measurements when I make this.

Instructions
  1. Mix the ground beef with some BBQ spice mix. Prep the Swiss cheese by cutting a block lengthwise so you have long strips about 1/2 inch on each side, make several long strips.
  2. Lay out your sushi mat so that you can roll it away from you. Lay out the strips of bacon sided by side, pointing away from you, and about 1 inch from the left and right sides and about an inch or so from the end that is farthest from you.
  3. Lay the ground beef on top of the bacon and pat down, maybe 1/2 inch thick, cover the bacon from the side closest to you and to the left and right, and stop at the end farthest from you, leaving about 2 inches of bacon visible. Form the edges tightly to make straight edges.
  4. About 2 inches from the side closest to you, place a cheese strip from left to right so that it goes from the edge of the beef to the other side.
  5. Use the mat to start a tight roll and roll it up. Repeat to make another roll. I am going to guess this would make two roll using a package of bacon and 500 grams of of beef.
  6. You can cook this on a preheated grill over indirect heat or on a rack your oven heated to 180 C. Place the rolls on the grill and cover with the lid and cook for 25 minutes.
  7. Remove the lid and brush on BBQ sauce of your choice. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, repeat, brushing one more time and cooking for another 5 minutes.
  8. Carefully remove the rolls from grill and set on a plate to rest for 5 minutes, then cut into thick slices with additional BBQ sauce on the side for dipping.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I make it, should Low to Fair cost I am assuming.

My wife and I have been doing this about once a month. Easy, great when family visits and you need to prepare a lot, and is a great way to get the little ones helping out as well. Thais like a good BBQ, and they love bacon, so what started out with just chicken livers and hearts has turned into a using mushrooms, baby corn, small sausages, shrimp, etc. No number of servings is stated, this is a make as much or as little as you like. The ingredients are suggested items but you can certainly use what you like or have on have on hand.

Instructions
  1. First thing is fire up your grill is using charcoal, if using gas, you can turn that on after everything is prepped.
  2. Open up the bag of skewers, bacon, and get out the veggies and or chicken livers, hearts, sausages, etc. Chicken livers you can leave whole or cut in half, Straw mushrooms leave whole, and for the Shimeji mushrooms you will need to trim off the root ends.
  3. On a plate or cutting board, lay down a strip of bacon so one end is facing away from you, place an item on the end closest to you, and simply roll it up in the bacon, run a skewer this. you can place 3-4 items on each skewer. Place the full skewers on a plate. Continue until everything is wrapped. Cover with foil.
  4. Place the skewers over hot coals on your grill. The cooking time is basically to crisp up the bacon, even for the chicken livers, when the bacon is crispy, the liver will be done as well.
  5. Place cooked skewers on a plate and and watch them disappear while cooking another batch, let people help themselves to the skewers of their choice and serve potato or pasta salad, and corn on the cob on the side.
Recipe Notes

Over all this would be low cost and is a great way to feed a crowd. Get the kids involved, show them once and they will remember, try to keep up with them.

Been making these years.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Take the pork and cut into thin strips.
  2. Mix the marinade ingredients together and add the pork. Refrigerate over night, or if pushed for time, marinate for at least 2 hours prior to grilling.
  3. Soak the skewers in water to prevent burning. Light your grill, charcoal would be preferred, when the coals are ready, no more flames, skewer the pork strips and grill until done, turning as needed. Serve as an appetizer or main meal with sides of your choice.
Recipe Notes

For pricing I will use pork shoulder at 103 Baht/kilo, A kilo would make a lot of sticks of meat! For an estimate of say 8 people (an average Thai family get together), this is about 38 cents per person. Great value.

This is a typical marinated steak with a Thai inspired marinade. Normally served sliced and on a salad, but feel free to side the steak with rice, potato, etc. This not how to tell you how to grill your steak, I just give a guideline on what works well for me.

Instructions
  1. Place the steaks in a zip lock bag. Mix together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl, mix well to ensure the sugar is dissolved. Pour the mix into the bag, squish out the air and mix the marinade to coat the steaks. Seal the bag and place in the fridge to marinate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours. Turn the bag over occasionally to make sure the steaks are well coated on both sides. Remove from the fridge about 30 minutes before you intend to grill them to let them get to room temperature.
  2. Get your grill ready, either gas or charcoal, totally up to you. Remove the steaks from the bag and retain the marinade. Place the steaks on the grill over direct heat and spoon over some of the marinade. Grill for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes and turn the steaks over, spoon on some more marinade and grill to your desired doneness. Slice and server on a salad or paired with rice or potato or any sides of your choosing.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I buy steaks again up in the city, this is a high cost meal though but is good for a once in a while treat.

Variants, use this marinade for chicken, pork, or even shelled shrimp.

I get a lot of good advice from my friends and this is probably the best way to enjoy brats (Bratwurst or Bierwurst) is to grill them, then simmer in beer, unless you are in Wisconsin then you would simmer them in beer then grill them. I have made brats like this several times and they are very good!

Ingredients
  • 1 package brats 270 grams, pack of 4, Bratwurst or Bierwurst
  • 1 onion cut into 6 or 8 wedges
  • 1 bell pepper optional, cut into strips
  • 1 can beer
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Light your grill, charcoal (what I use) or gas if you have that. Setup for indirect grilling. Mr. Sausage is the brand of brats I use.
  2. Grill the brats with indirect heat, and place a metal baking pan (I use a bread pan) on the grill as well, add the beer and onion to the pan, and bell pepper if using that and let that heat while the brats cook. Close the grill and cook the brats, turn them occasionally, for about 20 minutes. Then take the brats and put them into the pan and let them simmer for about 20-30 minutes with the lid closed. Serve as is with sides of your choice or on buns with spicy mustard.
Recipe Notes

I use Mr. Sausage brand bratwurst and bierwurst. One package, 4 sausages, is 270 grams and the cost is 129 Baht. For two servings, this is about $1.89 per serving. High cost but very good for a once in a while meal.

I am putting this out here for those that have never experienced this. This can be a zero cost meal if you can find oysters on your own, except for Phuket Province, sorry I would never try this there nor would I ever eat oysters from Phuket. Now for those along either coast, if you have seen oysters while out swimming, here is the perfect chance to try this. Most people are familiar with oysters on the half shell, deep fried oysters, and many recipes one can make from the oyster meat from Tesco. No sauces or lime juice are listed unless you prefer that, simple salt and pepper works.

Ingredients
Servings:
Instructions
  1. First thing you have to do is get the oysters, two easy ways, one is to harvest yourself while swimming, and the other ways is to get from local vendors in an open fresh market. For either choice you want the oysters to be tightly closed. There is no washing or scrubbing of them.
  2. For portions, a general guide is 6 large oysters per serving or 12 medium oysters per serving.
  3. Fire up your grill and let the coals get good and hot and spread those out. If you only have one of the small clay pots, you can use that as well.
  4. Place some oysters on the grill and after 5-10 minutes, sometimes as long as 15 minutes, the oysters will open and will be cooked, rather warmed through. Open the shell completely, add salt and pepper to your liking, and using a fork, scoop the oyster into your mouth and enjoy. It is as simple as that.
Recipe Notes

If you source the oysters from swimming, you have a free meal, well done! You should be able to get these from the open fresh markets, while not free, I do not know what the price would be per kilo.

Family makes these several times a year.

Just as the name states, this is a pineapple, filled with pulled pork and BBQ sauce, wrapped in bacon, and grilled. No quantities are given except you do need one whole pineapple to start with. You can make this with shredded chicken and BBQ sauce as well. I list this in the Leftover section as well since there is no need to make pulled pork just for this, a pineapple is not that big, but also consider friends and family, you may want to start with 2 pineapples.

Instructions
  1. Light your grill, think charcoal and get an even bed of coals going. Move the coals or lift the grate to prevent burning the bacon, no need to cook the bacon like in a frying pan.
  2. Cut the top off the pineapple, peel then slice in half lengthwise. Remove the core. With the pineapple sides lying on their sides, fill one piece, heaping with either pulled pork and BBQ sauce or pulled chicken and BBQ sauce, place the other pineapple piece on top and secure the two together with skewers or kitchen twine, then wrap with bacon, amount is up to you.
  3. Place this on your heated grill and cover, turn the pineapple occasionally to cook all the bacon but do not burn it. When the bacon is done, set the pineapple on a platter and slice and let people dig in. Serve with your favorite BBQ sides such as corn on the cob, potato salad, etc.
Recipe Notes

No pricing for this but I will list this is low cost since you would likely use leftovers to make this.
