Instructions
  1. In a large non stick pan on medium heat, brown the ground beef until almost cooked through, chopping it up with the spatula as it cooks. Drain off the fat.
  2. Add the onion, peppers, and garlic and cook until the onions and pepper is softened.
  3. Add the Worcestershire, beef broth, and sprinkle in the flour and stir. Cook to thicken the mixture.
  4. When thickened, stir in your favorite cheese.
  5. Serve on toasted rolls or bread of your choice.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 250 Baht for the beef. When I get some Provolone again I will be able to price this per serving. For now I will say fair cost.

I don't know why I thought of this last night, I must have been chatting with some of my Navy friends. For anyone that has been in South Korea, in the bar districts when the Navy visited, there was a street vendor with a cart, they made and sold Ham-O, Egg-O, Cheese-O sandwiches. This is a basic sandwich, and they made bank with these! These were made when you ordered, wrapped in paper and placed in a bag. I do not remember how much these were exactly, maybe $1 each, but they were inexpensive to say the least.

  1. Keep in mind this was done on a large griddle, the woman running the cart was probably making up to 4 of these at a time.
  2. Fry the ham, while the ham is cooking, fry an egg hard, breaking the yolk, flipping it once.
  3. Spread mayo on the bottom bun, add the fried ham slice on the bottom bun, top with the fried egg, top with a slice of cheese, spread mayo on the inside of the top bun and place that on top and place that on top. As simple as that.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Have enjoyed these many times in South Korea.

In Vietnamese, banh mi means bread, so the translation would be sausage sandwich. What makes this unique is what is added to the sandwich such as the pickled carrot and radish. I made these on 21 Nov 2017, excellent flavor, I really like the addition of the pickled carrot and radish. Cha Lua is a fully cooked sausage that is refrigerated when you buy them, so they can be eaten as is right from the fridge. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

  1. Reserve some of the diced bell peppers to sprinkle on top for garnish
  2. Saute peppers, onions, and garlic in a splash of olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet.
  3. Once the peppers and onions have started to soften, increase heat to medium high and add the ground beef to the pan, season with salt and pepper.
  4. Once the ground beef is cooked through, drain any excess fat, then add the chicken broth, can of whole tomatoes (chopped), tomato sauce, and soy sauce.

  7. Garnish with fresh diced bell peppers and green onions.
Recipe Notes

The beef would cost about 100 Baht/500 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 75 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Lightly grease a baking sheet with butter.
  2. Lightly flour your work surface. Unroll one can of crescent rolls on your work surface (if using the shortcut, roll out one half). Using your hands, press the seams together and lightly press and stretch a little into a nice rectangle.
  3. Add a layer of cheese, can be sliced or shredded, then then add your layer of cooked bacon. Unroll the remaining can of crescent rolls on top & press all the seems together both on top and all around the edges.
  4. Using a pizza cutter or a knife slice into squares. Place the entire thing on your baking sheet using a large spatula, working in batches. Lay all the squares right beside each other, just as they were before you sliced it. You want all the cut seams to be touching so that your cheese doesn’t leak out.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the top of the crescent rolls are lightly browned. Remove from the oven ans cool on a wire rack for 3-5 minutes before digging in. The crescent squares will pull right apart. Serve and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I find out how many servings this will make, for now I will say this is a fair value dish based on just the cheese and bacon used.

Variants: Use cooked crumbled sausage or even just ground beef.

Shortcut: Crescent Rolls (Bread Machine).

Add more olive oil as needed and heat that up before adding another batch.
