Ingredients
For the Marinade
Choose from 2 or 3 Vegetables
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Cut the pork loin into 1 inch cubes, place in a zip lock bag.
  2. Mix the marinade ingredients in a bowl and add to the zip lock bag with the pork, squish everything around to coat all the meat.
  3. If your vegetables are prepped, add them to the zip lock as well, they will pick up great flavor.
  4. Soak the skewers in water while the meat (and maybe vegetables) are marinating.
  5. Remove the pork (and maybe vegetables) from the marinade and drain, place on skewers alternating between pork cub and a vegetable, pork cube and another vegetable, until all is skewered.
  6. Place on a medium hot grill over medium heat and grill for 8 to 10 minutes, turning frequently until the pork is cooked through.
  7. Serve with sides of your choice, corn on the cob and coleslaw come to mind.
Recipe Notes

Pork loin will cost about 70 Baht/500 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 52 cents per serving.

Variants: Use what ever vegetables you like, it is that easy. In addition to button mushrooms, think Shiitake or even King Oyster mushrooms cut into thick slices.

This sounds really good. I'll have to do some research to source of ingredients, but that should be relatively easy. On my to cook list.

Servings: servings
Instructions
For the Meatballs
  1. Heat oven to 220 C. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper.
  2. Combine beef, green onions, garlic, egg, mint, cumin, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Roll golf ball sized meatballs with your hands and pop a cube of feta inside. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
For the Chickpeas
  1. Add olive oil to a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add garlic and shallot and sauté until softened, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with smoked paprika, cumin and chili flakes. Stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir in chickpeas and cook for 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning and adjust. Turn off heat and stir in cilantro leaves.
For the Zucchini Noodles
  1. Add zucchini to a bowl and drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Toss with hands. Let soften for 5 to 10 minutes at room temperature.
To Assemble
  1. Add zucchini noodles to the bottom of the bowl, top with meatballs, spiced chickpeas, feta, grated carrots, sliced grape tomatoes and sliced Persian cucumbers. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Figure the beef at about 150 Baht/750 grams. For Feta cheese. my estimate is about 40 Baht for that. For 4 servings, this is about $1.40 per serving.

There is as many ways to prepare fried rice as there is shades of green. There is no right or wrong way. The original use for fried rice was to use up left over rice and left over items from a meal, so this one is a little more creative and sounds really good.

Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large non stick skillet over medium high heat. Add the bacon and cook, until almost crispy. Add the sugar and 1 teaspoon soy sauce; stir-fry until the bacon is glazed, about 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl using a slotted spoon; reserve the drippings in a separate bowl. Wipe out the skillet.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons of the drippings in the skillet over medium heat. Whisk the eggs and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl and add to the skillet and cook, undisturbed, until just set, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and break up the eggs into large pieces.
  3. Heat the remaining drippings in the skillet over medium high heat. Add the tomatoes and ginger and stir-fry until the tomatoes are softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the snow peas, bell pepper, and scallions; stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add the rice and the remaining 2 teaspoons soy sauce; stir-fry until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Stir in the eggs and cook 1 minute. Top with the bacon. Serve as a side with pork or a prawn dish.
