Instructions
  1. First thing, if using wooden (bamboo) skewers, you need to soak those in water first. A note about the skewers, flat bamboo skewers would be ideal, double steel skewers would be good, these both keep the liver from turning as you turn the skewer (I hate it when that happens 🙂 Another option for Asia is split bamboo skewer, the meats are not skewered but placed between two bamboo sections and closed at the end with a twist of wire.
  2. Start your grill and get to a medium heat, I use real charcoal based on my location.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix together the lemon or lime juice, olive oil, lemon or lime zest, and Greek seasoning. Add the livers and mix together to coat the livers.
  4. Thread the livers onto skewers, about 3 per each skewer and brush both sides with the marinade as well.
  5. Brush the grill grating with some olive oil to help minimize sticking, and grill the liver for about 15 minutes, turning them occasionally.
  6. Test one liver and if cooked through (a bit of light pink is ok), serve.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Shortcut: Greek Seasoning.

These sound very good, and I will give two variants to try. This is a 'filled' burger as opposed to a 'stuffed' burger. Cooked on a grill and no flipping required. This is written for 2 burgers of each variant, just adjust the variant ingredients to make more or less of each. On my to cook list.

Ingredients
Cheddar & Jalapeno Filling (for 2 burgers)
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Heat your grill to medium with either charcoal or gas. You will be cooking over indirect heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the beef, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder, divide into 4 half pound balls. Place a beer can on top of a ball and push down and form the beef around the can and just a bit up the side. Wrap two slices of bacon the burger. Twist the can to remove that, the burger should have a nice deep indentation in it. Repeat this for the remaining balls. Season each indentation and the rest of the burger with ample salt and pepper to taste.
  3. For 2 burgers, add cubed Cheddar and Jalapeno slices in each indentation.
  4. For the 2 burgers with Bell Pepper, add the bell pepper and onion in each indentation then top each with a slice of Provolone.
  5. Grill the burgers over indirect heat, and covered, until cooked through, 30 minutes should be a medium burger.
  6. To serve, place lettuce and tomato on the bottom bun, place a burger on top, top with the top bun.
Recipe Notes

Beef will cost about 200 Baht/kilo. Cheddar about 180 Baht for 2 cups cubed, Provolone about 45 Baht for 2 slices. For 4 servings, this is about $3.13 per serving. Not cheap but sounds really good for a once in a while cookout with friends and family.

Ingredients
For the Marinade
Choose from 2 or 3 Vegetables
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Cut the pork loin into 1 inch cubes, place in a zip lock bag.
  2. Mix the marinade ingredients in a bowl and add to the zip lock bag with the pork, squish everything around to coat all the meat.
  3. If your vegetables are prepped, add them to the zip lock as well, they will pick up great flavor.
  4. Soak the skewers in water while the meat (and maybe vegetables) are marinating.
  5. Remove the pork (and maybe vegetables) from the marinade and drain, place on skewers alternating between pork cub and a vegetable, pork cube and another vegetable, until all is skewered.
  6. Place on a medium hot grill over medium heat and grill for 8 to 10 minutes, turning frequently until the pork is cooked through.
  7. Serve with sides of your choice, corn on the cob and coleslaw come to mind.
Recipe Notes

Pork loin will cost about 70 Baht/500 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 52 cents per serving.

Variants: Use what ever vegetables you like, it is that easy. In addition to button mushrooms, think Shiitake or even King Oyster mushrooms cut into thick slices.

  1. Cut the top off each jalapeno pepper and using a thin knife or vegetable peeler, remove the seeds and membrane from the inside of each pepper.
  2. Mix together the Cream cheese and Cheddar and stuff the mixture into each pepper.
  3. Form 12 patties with the bulk sausage about 3-4 inches in diameter. Roll a pepper in each patty and cover the pepper completely. making each ball, egg shaped.
  4. Place on the BBQ grill on indirect heat, turning occasionally until the outside is roasted and cheese starts to ooze from the sausage.
  5. Serve with Ranch or Bleu Cheese dipping sauce.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 120 Baht for pork to make the sausage yourself, it is very easy. Figure 120 Baht for the Cream cheese, and 170 Baht for Cheddar cheese. For 6 servings, this is about $2.00 per serving. Not a cheap meal but sounds good from visiting friends and family.

  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.

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.

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.
