Recipe Notes

Ground pork at Tesco will cost about 50 Baht/500 grams, if you want to control the fat, grind your own but that will affect the price. For 3 servings (not including the eggs as there is a large shift from the price from local vendor to Tesco, for 3 servings, this is about 52 cents per serving, slightly more with the eggs, but well under $1, always go with a local vendor.

Now I am not a fan of adobo, in the Navy, on the 4 ships I served on, adobo was on the menu every week, sometimes twice a week, and sometimes twice a day. This is the first adobo recipe on my site, and I will try this as well, as it has been many years since I have eaten adobo. Edited on 9 May 2018 to include peppercorns and bay leaves. I made this on 9 May 2018, and I was pleasantly surprised, very delicious.

Instructions
  1. Add the soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, onion, peppercorns, and bay leaves to your slow cooker.
  2. Slice the chicken into 1 to 1 1/2 inch pieces, add to the slow cooker and mix to coat all the chicken. (This photo shows I used the Variant and went with skinless, bone in, fat trimmed whole thighs.)
  3. Cover and turn on your slow cooker to the Low setting for 5 to 6 hours. Check for tenderness and doneness at the 5 hour mark.
  4. To thicken the sauce slightly, 30 minutes before serving, set the slow cooker to the High setting, stir, and leave the cover tilted to allow some of the liquid to evaporate.
  5. Remove the bay leaves, serve with rice.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 60 Baht for the chicken. For 6 servings, this is about 30 cents per serving.

Variant: 1. Use whole bone in, skinless, fat trimmed, thighs in place of boneless thighs.

  1. Mix the ground beef and the sausage together.
  2. Fry the patties, season with salt and pepper to taste, since it has pork in it make sure it is fully cooked. Just before removing from the pan, add the cheese on top of each patty and the avocado slices.
  3. While the patties are cookie, fry the eggs in another pan, sunny side up is perfect. Place a fried egg on each patty.
  4. Prep the rolls as follows; bottom bun, mayo, french fries, kimchi coleslaw, then the patty with the avocado and fried egg. Top bun with mayo.
  5. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Figure about 100 Baht/500 grams of beef and about 50 Baht for the sausage. Cheese would be minimal. For 4 servings, this is about $1.10 per serving.

Instructions
  1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl (except the casings) and mix well until fully combined. Cover bowl with a plastic wrap, let it marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. If stuffing in a casing, twist the casing about every 2-3 inches and tie off. If making patties, scoop up some meat mixture and roll into a ball and flatten to a circle about 3-4 inches across and just under 1/2 inch thick, place between wax paper or foil sheets. For casings or patties, place in the fridge overnight before freezing to let them dry out a bit.
  3. To cook the links, place uncut sausages in a pan, prick each link 1-2 times then add water to the pan about half way up on the sausage and cook on medium heat. Cook until the water is nearly all gone and turn the sausages occasionally. To cook the patties just heat a splash of olive oil in a pan and add the patties, cook one side until golden brown then flip and cook the other side, about 5-7 minutes per side.
Recipe Notes

Go with pork should and grind the meat yourself, this would be about 60 Baht/600 grams. The pork fat would cost about 20 Baht/250 grams. Overall this would be low cost.

Instructions
  1. Prepare the mussels by soaking them in hot water for a few minutes, this will open the mussels and then spread the shells apart, the shell with nothing on it, take off and discard, swish the shell will the mussel attached in the water a bit to clean it off and remove any impurities. If there is any grass tufts showing, remove those from the mussels as well. Set these aside.
  2. Preheat your oven to 180 C.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except the mussels, mix well to combine.
  4. Scoop up around 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of pork mixture and using your hands, stuff it into and onto a mussel. The shell will look like a rounded mound. Repeat until all the mussels have stuffings. Place each mussel on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until starting to brown, you want to make sure the pork is cooked through.
  6. Remove from the oven, arrange on a serving plate, serve with a dip of your choice if desired.
Recipe Notes

The pork would cost about 50 Baht/500 grams. The mussels however, I cannot price them until I buy some from a local fisherman. So I will leave this as is until I get an accurate price, for now I will say low cost.
