Instructions
  1. Roast the chilies or large green peppers from Tesco until charred, then remove skin, split open and remove seeds. Feel free to use a grill or broiler.
  2. To make the beer batter, pour 1 cup of beer into a large mixing bowl and add 1/2 cup of flour, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt. Mix until the flour is mixed evenly with the beer. Slowly add more beer in stages until a smooth consistency, you may not need to use all of the beer.
  3. Place the remaining flour in a plate. Cut the cheese into strips that will fit inside the chilies.
  4. Take previously roasted chilies and carefully insert one strip of cheese into each one. Secure cheese to chili by using one toothpick on the top and one at the bottom of each chili.
  5. Heat the cooking oil to hot but not smoking.
  6. Place one chili into the beer batter, then onto the flour on the plate and cover with flour, then place in the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on one side, then carefully turn it over and fry the other side until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining chilies.
  7. Serve with black beans or refried beans on the side, and topped with green chili sauce if desired. When I make these I will use a Thai green chili sauce.
Recipe Notes

Only expensive part is the cheese, going with 170 grams, that about 120 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about 88 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. The beer needs to be flat, so measure it and let it sit for about an hour on the counter before you start cooking.
  2. Toast the bread cubes in one layer at 150 C until they're crisp, not toasted. About 15 minutes. Place the bread cubes in a large bowl. Heat the oven to 180 C.
  3. In a skillet, cook the cauliflower and caraway seeds in the butter until barely tender. Add this to the bowl with the bread cubes, add the cheese and mix to combine. Spread this mixture into a 8 inch square baking dish or a 7x11 baking dish.
  4. In a bowl, mix the beer, eggs, mustard, coriander, and black pepper as desired. Pour this over the bread mixture. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until puffed up slightly and golden brown.

I get a lot of good advice from my friends and this is probably the best way to enjoy brats (Bratwurst or Bierwurst) is to grill them, then simmer in beer, unless you are in Wisconsin then you would simmer them in beer then grill them. I have made brats like this several times and they are very good!

Ingredients
  • 1 package brats 270 grams, pack of 4, Bratwurst or Bierwurst
  • 1 onion cut into 6 or 8 wedges
  • 1 bell pepper optional, cut into strips
  • 1 can beer
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Light your grill, charcoal (what I use) or gas if you have that. Setup for indirect grilling. Mr. Sausage is the brand of brats I use.
  2. Grill the brats with indirect heat, and place a metal baking pan (I use a bread pan) on the grill as well, add the beer and onion to the pan, and bell pepper if using that and let that heat while the brats cook. Close the grill and cook the brats, turn them occasionally, for about 20 minutes. Then take the brats and put them into the pan and let them simmer for about 20-30 minutes with the lid closed. Serve as is with sides of your choice or on buns with spicy mustard.
Recipe Notes

I use Mr. Sausage brand bratwurst and bierwurst. One package, 4 sausages, is 270 grams and the cost is 129 Baht. For two servings, this is about $1.89 per serving. High cost but very good for a once in a while meal.

Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. For a charcoal grill, light your charcoal, for a gas grill, light and heat the grill. You are looking for a temp of 180 to 230 C.
  2. Cut bell peppers into strips lengthwise, dice the large green chili. Cut the onion in half from the top to the root end, then cut each half crosswise into 1/4 inch slices.
  3. In a large disposable foil pan (or a large cast iron pan) over direct medium heat, melt the butter and add the fennel seeds. After a minute or so of the fennel cooking in the butter, add the peppers, chili, and onion, season with salt and pepper to your liking. Mix well with tongs. Cook the vegetables in the pan over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until tender and turning golden brown in spots, 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the vegetables brown too quickly, slide the pan over indirect heat and cook them there, with the lid closed.
  4. When the vegetables are tender, add the beer and mustard. Mix well with tongs. Slide the pan over indirect heat to keep warm.
  5. Grill the bratwurst over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until lightly charred on all sides, about 15 minutes, turning them every few minutes and swapping their positions as needed for even cooking. Then move the bratwurst to the pan over indirect heat. Smother them with the peppers and onion, close the lid, and simmer them for about 30 minutes. If the pan is getting too dry, add a little more beer.
  6. Serve them in a bun with the pepper mixture on top.
Recipe Notes

For pricing, go with about 180 Baht for 5 Bratwurst. For 4 servings, this is about $1.33 per serving.

Keep in mind, we are not in Wisconsin here, grill the sausage FIRST, THEN simmer in the beer, butter, and pepper mixture.

Instructions
  1. In a large non-stick pan over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter, add garlic and shrimp and cook until the shrimp is pink and cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes, transfer to a plate and set aside.
  2. Using the same pan, add the remaining butter and melt, then add the remaining ingredients, season with salt and pepper to taste and mix. Bring to a simmer and add the shrimp back to the pan until heated through.
  3. Serve with toasted french bread or as is for a great appetizer.
Recipe Notes

When I buy shrimp (prawn), they are large, ocean caught using a cast net, very eco friendly but also cost about 220 to 240 Baht per kilo. So at 240 Baht, and for 4 servings, this is about $1.75 per serving, not bad considering large shrimp. If you used small shrimp, the price would be less.

Instructions
  1. Wash chicken inside and out, remove giblets if in the cavity, if a local market bought chicken, remove the neck, feet, and trim the fat from the gut opening. Place chicken in slow cooker breast side down, add the garlic and onion in the gaps on the sides of the chicken.
  2. Pour beer over the chicken, sprinkle on the spices.
  3. Cover and cook on Low setting 7-8 hours or High setting for 3-4 hours.
  4. When chicken is cooked through (does not hurt to use a meat thermometer at this point), remove the whole chicken carefully from the pot as it may fall apart. If using chicken pieces, use a large slotted spatula.
  5. Make a gravy from the juices from the pot, enjoy. Serve with boiled or mashed potatoes or rice and a vegetable for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

A whole chicken will cost about 150 to 200 Baht. This is a $1 meal for 6 people, less for 8 people.
