Sounds like a great meal, in Thailand, Makro has some excellent smoked sausage at times. All slow cookers are different so the first time you make this, you may need to adjust the liquid needed. On my to cook list.

I cannot price this until I make it, I need to go up to Makro for sausage and I can get accurate pricing information then. I will say Fair value for right now and will update this.

Sounds good, and the ribs I would use are the short ribs found in any Tesco or even fresh markets but watch the cook time. I will verify this when I make them. This is a slow cooker recipe that will also need your broiler as well. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Ingredients

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.

I like beans and make a lot of items using dry beans to start with, and I have a lot of time on my hands so I go with slow cooked beans in my slow cooker as the standard. This recipe can be tailored at will with what you have on hand or what you want to use. This recipe is what I make but it also changes each time.

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.

Instructions
  1. Place the pork knuckles in your slow cooker.
  2. Mix together remaining ingredients except the mashed potatoes and pour over the knuckles. Cover and cook on Low setting for 8 hours without removing the lid.
  3. Remove the knuckles from the slow cooker. Scoop out some sauerkraut and place on one side of each plate, place a pork knuckle on top of the kraut, then place a scoop of mashed potatoes on the other side of the plate. Serve.
Recipe Notes

These are available at Makro, frozen, each is 800 grams and cost is 200 Baht each. And I recently seen them 4 in a bag, frozen in Tesco, cannot remember the price. If serving one knuckle for 2 people (easily done),  the cost would be about $2.95 per person. I will add  the cost of sauerkraut when I find that. More expensive than other meals listed here but is a great treat for yourself.
