Shrimp and sausage cooked in a slow cooker, count me in! Any type of shrimp can be used, peeled, unpeeled, head on or off, frozen, or even cooked shrimp. The steps are different for each way so the first time you make this, take note of the times for use again. And from the author of this recipe regarding the shrimp "Pink is the key. Grey isn't cooked, white is over cooked."

Instructions
  1. Lightly butter the slow cooker pot. Add the corn and potatoes. Add the sausage on top.
Using Frozen Shrimp
  1. Add the shrimp on top of the sausage, place some lemon slices on the shrimp, pour in the chicken stock. Cover and cook on Low setting until the potatoes are fork tender and the shrimp are pink. Serve.
Using Fresh Shrimp
  1. Fresh shrimp can be peeled, deviened, tail attached or removed, or can be unpeeled with heads attached or removed. Peeled cooks faster than unpeeled. Just start the slow cooker on Low setting with the corn, potatoes, sausage and stock. Add the shrimp about 1 hour before you want to serve and some lemon slices, so when the potatoes are almost but not quite fork tender, add the shrimp and lemon slices and cook until the shrimp are pink. Serve.
Using Cooked Shrimp
  1. You can use shrimp you already boiled and are pink. Just start the slow cooker on Low setting with the corn, potatoes, sausage and stock. Add the shrimp about 20-30 minutes before you want to serve and some lemon slices, so when the potatoes are just about fork tender, add the shrimp and lemon slices and cook until the shrimp warmed through. Serve.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I get smoked sausage. For now I will say fair cost but sounds delicious!

This is an old classic. I remember this well, perfect with a side of mashed or boiled potatoes, egg pasta, or even better, yellow summer squash. In Makro there is what is called Spicy Smoked Sausage, very similar in taste to Kielbasa and is very good! This is a must make for me when my squash in the garden matures.

Recipe Notes

I have to verify the price on the sausage at Makro but I will say right now this is fair value priced.

750 grams of Chorizo 10 minutes
Ingredients
Servings: grams of Chorizo
Instructions
  1. You can use either minced pork from the store, or as I like to do, is grind my own, as you can control the fat content of meat. I will use pork shoulder when I make this. If grinding your own, use the medium plate or the coarse (wagon wheel) plate.
  2. Add the coarse ground pork to a large bowl, add all other ingredients and mix well, use your hands to ensure a good mixing. You may need to increase the amount of vinegar.
  3. Pack into a large jar or ceramic bowl, cover and store in the fridge for up to several weeks. Best to sit overnight in the fridge before the first use.
  4. To use, just scoop some out and cook with scrambled eggs, diced potatoes, etc.
Recipe Notes

Pork will cost about 75 Baht for 750 grams. This can be added to various dishes so 750 grams will last for say 6-10 dishes. Low cost.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Microwave the bell peppers on High for 2 minutes to soften slightly. Cut bell peppers in half, lengthwise. Remove seeds and membranes, leave the stem intact for visual purpose.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add sausage to skillet and cook 4 minutes, stirring to break into small pieces. Add onion to skillet, stirring occasionally, until sausage is cooked and onion is tender, about 3 minutes. Remove sausage mixture from pan.
  3. Add cornmeal to the same skillet cook 1 minute, stirring constantly then add broth, milk, and 3/4 teaspoon of the salt, bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Stir in parsley, sausage, and half of the cheese. Divide mixture evenly among bell pepper halves. Place side by side on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until the cheese is browned and the peppers are tender.
  5. While the peppers are cooking, whisk the olive oil, vinegar, black pepper, and remaining salt in a medium bowl, add the tomatoes and basil, toss to coat. Serve over peppers with bread or a salad on the side for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

For the sausage, this is based on making it yourself (takes just minutes) and would only cost about 40 Baht. Figure about 60 Baht for the cheese. For 6 servings, this is about 49 cents per serving.

Variant: Use 3 links of Italian sausage, hot or mild, remove the casing and break up when you cook them.

Shortcut: Italian Sausage.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. This is the seasoning packet, kit, used for this sausage, it contains everything, you just have to supply the meat. Lobo brand, best brand I have used, instructions are in English as well on the back, including photos.
  2. This is the contents of the kit, there is three packets, salt, rice, seasoning pack is mainly garlic and black pepper. There is also the collagen casings (5) and the strings needed to tie the sausages.
  3. I like to grind meat for Thai sausages as it does need to be quite fatty. This is the 500 grams of pork belly with the skin removed and cut into strips for the grinder. Grinding plate used is the course one, commonly called a wagon wheel.
  4. In a large bowl, add the pork and the contents of the three foil packets, using your hands, mix until sticky, this takes just a few minutes. Divide into approximately 5 equal size portions, I bassicaly make 5 meatballs that are the same size, you can leave them in the same bowl. Wash and dry your hands, important that your hands are dry when handling the casings.
  5. Open the casing packet and unfold the casings and separate them. One end is already tied.
  6. I use a funnel to stuff sausages and the plunger for my meat grinder is what I use to push the meat through the funnel. You can use any method you are familiar with to stuff the casings. Place a casing on the end of the funnel and slide it on all the way to the knotted end. Pick up one portion of the meat and place in the funnel, use your fingers or a plunger from a meat grinder to fill a casing. (I jumped the gun here and stuffed all 5 casings, instead of tying it into the smaller ones before stuffing the next.)
  7. Now with a casing stuffed, lay it on a plate and starting from the knotted end, use the string and tie into 5 smaller links, just wrap the string around and pull tight. when you get to the open end, give that a twist and tie that off with the string. (I made the mistake of trying to twist into links, worked about half the time, so don't do that method. I will certainly make this again and again, and will take new photos as well.)
  8. Let the sausage sit on the counter for 1 hour. Cook on a charcoal grill over low heat until cooked through, or bake at 140 C for 30 to 40 minutes. Serve with fresh vegetable like cabbage, lettuce, cucumber, carrot.
Recipe Notes

The seasoning packet for this is 37 Baht, and it includes the casing and string. The pork belly will cost about 70 Baht/500 grams. For 5 servings, this is about 63 cents per serving.

Variants: Beef, chicken, and shrimp can be used instead of pork.

Instructions
  1. Place meat in food processor and add the fish sauce, salt, sugar, pepper, garlic and onion powders. Pulse until fully incorporated and is pasty in texture.
  2. Add the baking powder and flour to the warm water (do not prep this mixture until just before you are ready to add it to the meat mixture).
  3. Pour the wet mixture into the meat mixture, and process for 30 seconds. Place the meat mixture in a medium bowl, cover, and place in fridge for overnight.
  4. The next day, remove the meat from the fridge, and divide into two loaves.
  5. Wrap each loaf tightly with foil, repeat with another layer of foil. Twist the ends tightly and tie with kitchen string.
  6. Steam the loaves for 30-45 minutes.
  7. Remove the foil, slice, and enjoy. Mashed potatoes and gravy and a vegetable would be good sides.
Recipe Notes

For pork, this will run about 110 to 140 Baht/kilo for lean pork. For 1 1/4 kilo I will figure this as 175 Baht, for 4 servings, this is about $1.30 per serving.

Kimbap is Korean in origin, think of a California Roll and you will get the general idea. No raw fish involved, meats are cooked, vegetables can be pickled, steamed, or raw. Cha Lua Kimbap uses, you guessed it, Vietnamese sausage. These can be rolled in kim (roasted seaweed) or nori sheets. ingredients are approximate until I test this out.

  1. For this you will want to get everything ready and set out first. For the rice, you want it to be warm, not hot or cold, this will help in spreading it out better. The pickled carrot and radish are or should be, julienned.
  2. For the sausage and cucumber, slice those lengthwise into strips about 1/4 inch or just a bit larger.
  3. For the eggs, mix together and fry a basic flat omelet, let this cool and cut into strips as well.
  4. Lay out a piece of kim in front of you on the bamboo mat. Take approximately 1 cup of rice and spread evenly over the bottom 2/3 of the sheet, leaving a 3/4 inch border of riceless space. Sparingly brush the rice with sesame oil and sprinkle a pinch of salt on it as well.
  5. With about an inch of empty rice space at the bottom, place the filling ingredients on top of and next to each other.
  6. Slowly and gently roll over the bamboo mat end that is closest to you, and keep rolling while pulling back that same bamboo mat edge. Once you've started the roll, the roll shape should be maintained. After fully encircling the kimbap filling, give a couple of extra squeezes with your hands to firm up the roll.
  7. Now to slice it. Keep a paper towel soaked with some sesame oil nearby to wipe your knife, you will need to wipe it every so often to keep the knife from getting too sticky. Serve and enjoy.

Low cost.

Variants: Feel free to use any fillings you like.

  1. In a medium size bowl, dissolve the contents of the seasoning pack in the warm water. This is the seasoning pack used.
  2. Add the pork belly to the seasoning mix and blend well until sticky, use your hands for this, takes just a few minutes for this.
  3. Now for the collagen casing, first, it is used dry, never soak them. I used a funnel when I made these as I have never used casings before. If you are experienced using casings, use the method of your choice. Grease up the funnel tube with vegetable for the first sausage, and fit the casing onto the tube all the way to the knotted end.
  4. Fill the casing with the pork mixture by pressing it into the funnel tube, pierce any air pockets with a pin or toothpick. Use kitchen string to tie off the ends. Five sausages ready.
  5. Cook on a charcoal grill over low heat until cooked through, or bake at 140 C for 20 minutes. Slice diagonally and serve with sticky rice and vegetables such as cabbage, lettuce, or cucumber. I cooked these in my oven, family and I started to devour them before I got a photo right out of the oven.
Recipe Notes

The seasoning packet for this is 37 Baht, and it includes the casing. The pork belly will cost about 70 Baht/500 grams. For 5 servings, this is about 63 cents per serving.

Variants: Beef, chicken, and shrimp can be used instead of pork. For shrimp, increase to 600 grams and do not use any water, just mix the seasoning packet into coarsely chopped shrimp.
