For the Chicken & Broth
Remaining Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. To make the broth, add the chicken, onion, carrot, and celery to a large pot with the 7 cups of water. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, cook for about 20-30 minutes. Remove the pot from the burner and let it cool to room temp on its own, this will give good tender and juicy chicken.
  2. Once cooled, remove the chicken to a cutting board.
  3. Pour the liquid in the pot through a strainer, discard contents of the strainer, return the broth to the same pot. Now you have fresh homemade broth, wasn't that simple and easy?
  4. Preheat your oven to 190 C. Butter a 9x13 baking dish and set that aside.
  5. Bring the broth to a boil and add the pasta and cook until it is just tender. Remove the pot from the burner and let sit for 5 minutes.
  6. While the pasta is sitting (it is soaking up flavor), go ahead and cut the chicken into bite size pieces, set aside.
  7. In a large mixing bowl, add the two soups, garlic and onion powders, and half the cheese. Mix together. Now you are ready to put this together.
  8. Drain the pasta. Place half the pasta in the baking dish and spread out to an even layer.
  9. Layer half the chicken on top.
  10. Spread half the soup mixture on the top.
  11. Repeat the layers then sprinkle the remaining cheese on the top. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  12. Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes, serve with a salad for a nice meal.
Recipe Notes

Three good sized chicken breasts might, just might, cost 65 Baht. Without running the numbers, this is a Low Cost meal for sure.

  1. To a large pot, add the first 11 ingredients. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 1 hour, uncovered. Remove the chops and set aside to cool.
  2. Remove 3/4 cup of broth from the pot then whisk the flour into the broth you removed. Set aside. When the chops have cooled, remove and discard any bones and fat then chop the meat into bite size pieces.
  3. To the pot, add the 5 vegetables at the end of the ingredient list and add the chopped pork as well. Stir and bring to a boil and stir in the flour mixture you set aside earlier. Reduce heat to a simmer and let cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove the bay leaf, and optionally, you can gently mash some of the potatoes to make a thicker soup. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 100 Baht for pork loin (boneless chops). For 8 servings, this is about 40 cents per serving. When I price bone in chops I will update pricing here.

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.

The original title of this recipe was very misleading, called sirloin tips. First off, tips are scraps from roast cuts, aka, stew meat, but 'tips' seems to be the buzzword this year. The other misleading thing was the recipe called for a sirloin steak, cut into pieces, and those pieces suddenly became sirloin tips. I am not going to state any particular type of steak or cut to use, especially for where I live, just go with a cheap cut of beef. When I make this I will get exact measurements as well.

  4. To the same pan add the wine and let that reduce a tittle bit then add the broth and bring to a boil, return the beef and vegetables to the pan and reduce to a simmer and cover. Simmer for about an hour, stirring occasionally, or until the beef is tender.

  1. Slice the potatoes, skin on or off is your choice, slice about 1/4 inch thick. Boil until just tender, drain.
  2. Preheat your oven to a high broiler temp or if using a counter top oven, heat the top coil to about 190 C, grease a 8 or 9 inch pie dish with butter, Pyrex would be perfect.
  3. Add the beef to a non stick skillet with a splash of olive oil, season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Brown the beef and cook through. Remove from heat, drain fat and set aside.
  4. Place a layer of 1/3 of the sliced cooked potatoes on the on the bottom of the pie dish, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle about 1/3 of the cheese, place in the oven until the cheese is melted.
  5. Add the ground beef to the pie dish and spread into a layer, sprinkle with another 1/3 cup of cheese, cover with remaining potato slices, season again with salt and pepper as desired, back into the oven and broil for 6-7 minutes. Remove from oven.
  6. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese, back into the oven and broil for another 1-2 minutes to melt and start browning the cheese. Remove and let rest 5 minutes, serve with a vegetable on the side for a good meal.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 100 Baht/500 grams of beef and 80 Baht for the cheese. For 6 servings, this is about 89 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Seasoning Salt.

Variants: 1. Use ground pork in place of beef. 2. Add some chopped onion and or garlic to the ground meat when browning. 3. Think mashed potatoes instead of sliced and boiled. 4. Use any cheese you want.
