Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil in a non stick pan. While that is heating, place the flour in a large bowl add season with salt and pepper to taste, mix in the beef to coat. When the oil is hot, add the beef to the pan in batches to brown all sides, not cooking it through just browning it a bit. Place browned beef in your slow cooker.
  2. Once all the beef is browned and in the slow cooker, pour in the stock, diced tomatoes (these can be canned or fresh), Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and stir, then add the potatoes, carrots, onion, celery, oregano, garlic, and bay leaf.
  3. Stir to mix then cover and set the slow cooker to Low setting and cook for 8 hours.
  4. Whisk together the cornstarch and water, pour into the slow cooker and stir to mix into the stew, cover the pot and set to High setting for another 30 minutes to an hour to thicken the stew.
  5. Serve with biscuits or bread.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 300 Baht for the beef. For 6 servings this is about #1.47 per serving.

Shortcut: Tenderize Beef with Tomatoes.

Variant: 1. Instead of adding potatoes to the stew at the beginning, serve the stew over mashed potatoes. To do this, increase the stock used by a cup to allow a soupier stew that will go well with mashed potatoes.

Low cost. With some planning, plan on a chicken dish that uses boiled shredded chicken, then you can make the stock for this by simply adding trinity when boiling the chicken, and use several tablespoons of the chopped chicken to make the soup with a shortcut.

Instructions
  1. Sort the beans and discard bad beans or debris, rinse and place in a large bowl that has a lid, cover with water by about 2 inches, cover and place in the fridge overnight.
  2. Next day, drain the beans, quick rinse and place in the slow cooker. And the chicken stock and set the slow cooker to High setting.
  3. Fry the bacon in a pan until just crispy, remove from the pan, briefly drain on a paper towel, then add to the slow cooker. You can reserve some of the bacon to garnish the top of each bowl if desired. This photo shows I am using 1/2 package of store bought Thai brand bacon, and 4 slices of thick cut German smoked bacon.
  4. Pour the bacon fat into a jar for use in later, like frying eggs, potatoes, etc but do not wipe out the pan, now add the veggies to the pan and cook those for 4-5 minutes or until starting to soften, then stir in the tomato paste, cook for another minute or two, then add this mixture to the slow cooker. Add the bay leaves and stir to mix everything together. Cover.
  5. Continue to cook on High for a total of 3 hours, then switch to Low setting for 3 hours. Perfect consistency.
  6. Remove the bay leaves, stir in some dried parsley and serve. Top with the reserved bacon for garnish if desired and sprinkle some dried parsley on as well.
Recipe Notes

Only item expensive here would be the smoked bacon, a good brand is TGM, this would be about 130 Baht/200 gram package, 2 packages would be 260 Baht. For 8 servings, this is about 95 cents per serving, good value!

Variant: Prior to serving, add 2-3 chopped plum tomatoes and stir those in. Add macaroni for kind of pasta fagioli to get more meals from this.
