Sounds delicious. Smoked sausage is available here, but I would lean towards other sausages for the various flavors. Low number of ingredients as well.

Instructions
  1. Layer the ingredients in the slow cooker starting with the potatoes.
  2. Then add the long beans.
  3. Then add the sausage. Pour the broth over the top. For this dish, I used 240 grams of Italian sausage.
  4. And another 270 grams of Vietnamese sausage, it is just a recipe, not set in stone, feel free to use sausage of your choice.
  5. Cover and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours. Do not remove the cover before 6 hours. When the potatoes are fork tender, you can serve after that or switch to Warm to serve later. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
Recipe Notes

Going with my purchase of Cumberland sausage at 178 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about $1.31 per serving.

Variants 1. Use other types of sausage, Cumberland would be a good choice, Italian, Bangers, even Vietnamese sausage would be good in this. 2. Use pork or chicken stock in place of the vegetable stock.

Ingredients
Servings: meters of sausage
Instructions
  1. First thing, chill the meats in the fridge, sterilize and chill the grinder parts in the fridge. Grinding meat creates heat, so you want the meat and the grinder to be a cool temp, not freezing, just chilled.
  2. Cut the pork belly into cubes that will fit in your meat grinder hopper. Then do the same with the pork shoulder. Remove any tendons or stringy matter. Mix together the two meats, then add the spices and herbs and mix together. Place the meat in the fridge to chill for 2 hours. Assemble your meat grinder with the coarse plate, typically the wagon wheel plate.
  3. Grind the meat, then in a large bowl, mix with the breadcrumbs.
  4. Soak the hog casings per instructions on the package. Remove the cutting blade and plate from your grinder. and attach the sausage funnel. Rub some bacon fat or cooking oil on the funnel, slip the end of the wet hog casing over the attachment and pull the casing down the shaft so that it is bunched up at the base.
  5. Tie the starting end of the casing with string, using the slow setting on the grinder, add the meat back to the grinder, fill the casing but do not over fill, any air bubbles, prick with a tooth pick. Work the sausage into the casing and form the casing into a ring as you go. You can leave in a ring or twist and make links and tie with string to make links, up to you.
  6. Store the sausage in the fridge overnight. Then you are ready to cook them as you see fit.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I get the meats and casing, overall I will say fair value, but much less than store prices, by a long shot.

Shortcut: Breadcrumbs.

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.

  1. Layer the potatoes on the bottom first.
  2. Then add the sausage. I used Cumberland sausage for this.
  3. Then the garlic. If using yellow squash (I did not), then layer that on top of the garlic.
  4. Then add the chopped bell peppers, I used 1 red, 1 green, and 1 yellow. Pour the stock over the top.
  5. Cover and cook on Low setting for 5 to 7 hours, do not open the cover until the 5 hour mark, if the potatoes are fork tender, it is ready to be served or just set to Warm setting until ready. Salt and pepper to taste just before serving. This was perfect at the 5 hour mark using 1/4 inch thick potatoes.
Recipe Notes

I used 500 grams of Cumberland sausage that cost 178 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about 88 cents per serving.

Variants: 1. Use chopped chicken, turkey, Cumberland sausage, or shrimp, or a combination. 2. Use pork stock in place of chicken stock.

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.

  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.

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

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.
