I state basic for this as it uses store bought gravy packets or you can make the 'store bought' packets yourself, but you will dress these up with some with other ingredients. Thai brand Lobo makes an excellent Beef Gravy packet and they are very inexpensive. Links to the shortcuts are listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C.
  2. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl, using a large sturdy spoon, mix thoroughly but gently, you are not trying to make a cake batter here. An overly worked meatloaf may result in a tougher meatloaf.
  3. Place the mixed beef in a 7x11 baking dish and shape into a loaf. Bake for 50-56 minutes or until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear. For meatloaf I use a thermometer to verify the minimum safe temp, for ground beef, you want a minimum of 71 C or 160 F. When done, remove from oven.
  4. Let the meatloaf rest for 5 minutes, then slice and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

For the beef, figure about 200 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about 98 cents per serving.

Variants: 1. Instead of using ketchup, us V8 juice. 2. Before baking, a mixture of ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard spread over the top. 3. About 10 minutes before the meatloaf is done, spread some V8 juice over the top and continue to bake until done. 4. Add diced bell pepper. 5. Replace the oats with crushed butter crackers. 6. Add chopped mushrooms.

Most of you will know this as egg drop soup, the Chinese name is 蛋(dàn) 花(huā) 汤(tāng), literally means 'egg flower soup'. There is your language lesson for the day. This is a basic soup that can be made with water or broth. The stirring speed determines the size of the 'egg flowers'. When I was in the Navy, egg drop soup meant a near clear broth with egg you could hardly see. This recipe is from a Chinese friend, so I will go with this as very accurate. This recipe calls for Oyster mushrooms, do not confuse them with King Oyster mushrooms, lot of difference.
