Instructions
  1. You can use standard bone in or boneless pork chops this. I used 4 thick cut (1 1/2 to 2 inches thick, 350 to 430 grams each) boneless loin chops, read the Variant listed below if you want to use these.
  2. Place the pork chops in your slow cooker, top the chops with the mushrooms and garlic.
  3. Mix together the wine and soup, pour over the chops. (This photo is from about an hour into cooking.)
  4. Cover and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours. Check for tenderness at 6 hours, if tender they are ready to be served, if not tender to your liking, continue cooking and keep checking every hour. Serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

For the pork chops I used, the thick cut loin chops, 4 of them were 200 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about $1.47 per serving.

Shortcut: Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup.

Variant: Use thick cut boneless loin chops or any chops thicker than 1 inch, if you want to use these, first, pound each chop with a needle tenderizer, two, you may need to extend the cooking time for tender chops but you do risk drying them out as well, so keep checking tenderness from 6 hours on.

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!

Recipe Notes

The pork chops I found at Tesco, thick cut, bone in, 250 grams each, were 160 Baht each making this about $4.70 per serving but these are so good I will make this once every 3 months, when I go to the city for my address report, I will look in Makro for these and the cost should be less. I will also test this recipe with just thick cut pork loin, which would make this a low cost meal.

Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. These are the ribs I get at Tesco. Look for the strips that are meaty, remove the distorted bones on the ends and save for a soup if you wish, and just go with the nice straight bones. The bones are only about 3 inches long.
  2. Remove silver skin from the back of the ribs if that is present. Cut the ribs into 3 bone sections, sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and place in the slow cooker.
  3. Pour the root beer into the slow cooker, cover, and cook on Low setting for 5 hours, do not remove the cover.
  4. Check the ribs at 5 hours, if very tender, you are almost done, if not tender, continue cooking and checking each hour. Once the ribs are tender, carefully remove from the pot and set on a foil lined baking sheet.
  5. Brush the ribs with BBQ sauce and broil for a few minutes, charring a bit is ok, then flip the ribs over, brush more sauce, and broil for a few more minutes, again, a bit of char is ok. Remove to a serving tray, sprinkle some thinly sliced spring onion on, and serve.
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.

Shortcut: BBQ Sauce.

Instructions
  1. Sort the beans and remove any bad ones or debris, soak overnight.
  2. Next day, drain and rinse the beans, add to your slow cooker. Add cut up sausage, ham, or bacon, add water to the slow cooker about 1 inch above the contents.
  3. Cook on Low setting for 8-10 hours (I routinely start my beans about noon, cook until about 7 or 8 pm, leave in the pot and just start cooking the next day).
  4. Season with some salt, black pepper, oregano, and cumin to your liking. Keeping mind, slow cookers will reduce the seasoning level the longer you cook.
Recipe Notes

Low cost, and it makes a lot of beans.

Variants: Use any of the following, chopped onion, tomato paste, chopped chilies, ham, bacon, or even chicken, use chicken stock instead of water, you get the idea, tailor this at will.

Common recipe I have been making for years, and never the same.
