Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the ground meat, 1/2 the onion, 1/2 the oregano, egg, garlic, carrot, and rice. Then get in there with your clean hands and mix this together. (I used 750 grams of pork (1 1/2 lbs) so I used 2 eggs.)
  2. Shape the mixture into 10 balls and place each in your slow cooker. (I used 750 grams of pork (1 1/2 lbs) so I made 12 good sized meatballs.)
  3. Wipe out the mixing bowl, then add the soup, Worcestershire sauce, remaining oregano, remaining onion, and the can of water or 1 1/4 cups of water if you made the shortcut. Mix well. (Big change here I used 3 cups of condensed soup.)
  4. Pour the sauce over the meatballs. Set the slow cooker to High setting and cook for 4 hours then switch to Low setting got 1 more hour. (Big change here I used 3 cups of condensed soup.)
  5. When ready, use a large spoon to scoop out the meatballs, this photo is with 3 meatballs and 2 scoops of gravy removed already.
  6. Serve with mashed potatoes, pasta, or rice.
Recipe Notes

Thinking just ground pork or chicken, this is low cost per serving.

Shortcut: Condensed Tomato Soup.

Variant: 1. If you go heavy on the meat, say, 750 grams (1 1/2 lbs) like I did, add another egg, touch more seasoning, and 3 cups of soup.

This is a spin off from the 3-Ingredient Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops, which uses a packet, or homemade, Ranch Dressing. Ranch dressing has dried dill, dried parsley, dried diced onion, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper (those are the basic ingredients), so in this, I stepped it up to fresh dill, fresh garlic, fresh onion, and used pork loin instead of chops.

Instructions
  1. I am going to use use fresh onion, garlic, and dill, and no added salt.
  2. Tesco has excellent pork loin, can get 3-4 thick slices from each piece. Here is the 6 pieces I am going to use for this recipe.
  3. Place the diced onion in the bottom of your slow cooker. Place a layer of pork loin, then sprinkle with half the pepper, parsley, garlic, and dill. Place another layer of pork loin and sprinkle the remaining pepper, parsley, garlic, and dill.
  4. Prepare your chicken gravy, I use Lobo brand (Thai product which is very good), let the gravy cool for a few minutes, then pour over the pork loin, do worry if the dill sort of floats away in places, it is all cooked together.
  5. Set the cooker to Low setting for 6 to 8 hours, cover and cook for 6 hours without removing the cover, then check the tenderness. Time is variable with thickness of the slices. for thin, less than 1 inch check at 6 hours, for 1 inch check at 7 hours, for 1 1/2 inch check at 7 and you may need to cook another hour. If not tender, cook for another hour and check again. Once tender, if not serving right away, just switch the cooker to Warm setting.
  6. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice, or pasta, and spoon the gravy over everything, add a vegetable for a side and you have a complete meal. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Pork loin in Tesco will cost about 170 Baht/1 1/2 kilos, for 6 servings, this is about 90 cents per serving.

My own creation based on another recipe to use fresh ingredients and pork loin instead of costlier pork chops. Lee Thayer.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Heat the butter in a non stick pan, when melted and hot, add the onion, garlic, bell pepper, celery, and jalapeno pepper (if using) and cook and stir for a few minutes, you are not trying to brown them, just heating them all through, remove from heat and pour it all, butter and all, into your slow cooker, there, you just made a mirepoix 🙂
  2. Drain and rinse the beans, add to the slow cooker, then add diced ham, sliced sausage, bay leaves, 1/2 teaspoon of Creole seasoning.
  3. Here I added the mirepoix after I added beans, ham, and sausage. The order in which you add it does not matter at all.
  4. Add the stock and 4 cups of water, add more water as needed to make sure everything is covered by the liquid, also take into account the beans will expand some during cooking so do not overfill the slow cooker. Stir to mix everything together.
  5. Cover and set to Low setting and cook for 8 to 10 hours for the consistency of beans you prefer.
  6. Remove the bay leaves, stir in the remaining Creole seasoning, serve over cooked rice.
Recipe Notes

I will say Low cost for now based on 8 servings and using homemade sausage (which I will be doing). I did buy some ham to dice up just for this but forgot the price. I will price this when I get accurate numbers.

Shortcut: Creole Seasoning Mix.

Variants: 1. Use a ham hock in place of the diced ham. 2. Sausage can be Andouille, smoked sausage, kielbasa, or any sausage you prefer. 3. For creamier beans, tilt the lid on the slow cooker for the last 1-2 hours. 3. Use Cajun seasoning instead of Creole, they are nearly the same.

  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.
  6. Served with fresh baked bread on the side, perfect meal.
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.

Instructions
  1. Rub or mist your slow cooker with olive oil to make clean up easier. Not required but is handy.
  2. Sprinkle the loin well with salt and pepper, be generous. Place the loin in the slow cooker, add 1/2 cup of water and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours, or High setting for 3 to 4 hours. This is two pieces of loin, 1 kilo, I also use these and cut in half for boneless pork chops 🙂
  3. Check tenderness at 6 and 3 hours respectively, if the pork shreds easily with a fork, it is done. When done, shred with two forks right in the slow cooker, nothing to fine, just good bite sized pieces.
  4. 20 minutes before you want to serve, place a pot on the stove and add the broth and heat to boiling then add the noodles and cook until just tender. The stock should be mostly absorbed. If there is still liquid, go ahead and drain some of that off.
  5. Use a slotted spoon and remove the pork from the slow cooker and add to the noodles.
  6. Stir to combine well. If the pork is not hot enough, heat the pot on very low heat for a few minutes, add a tablespoon or so of liquid from the slow cooker to prevent sticking, this is not a soupy dish. Taste and season as needed with salt and pepper.
  7. Serve with a salad for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

Going with 1 kilo of pork loin, cost would be 115 Baht, for 6 servings, this is about 56 cents per serving.

Variants: 1. Add cooked cabbage or sauerkraut, add sliced mushrooms. 2. Stir in a cup of chicken gravy (which sounds awesome!).

Instructions
  1. You can use standard bone in or boneless pork chops for this. I used 4 thick cut (1 1/2 to 2 inches thick, 350 to 430 grams each) boneless loin chops, read Variant 1 listed below in the Recipe Notes 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: 1. 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. 2. Use mushrooms you like or have available. I used Buna (brown) Shimeji, but other good choices would be White Shimeji, Shiitake, white or brown button, or even King Oyster. Regular oyster and wood ear mushrooms probably not a good idea.

  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.

  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!
