Ingredients

Instructions
  1. If using hog casings packed in salt, you will need to soak and rinse them following the suppliers instructions. If using dry hog casing, set them aside until needed, the just need a minute or two in water and can be used. You can also use collagen casings if you prefer.
  2. In a mortar, add the white pepper, garlic, and coriander and pound with a pestle to combine. You can also use a blender for this if you desire.
  3. Mix the pounded garlic mixture with the remaining ingredients, except the casings, by hand until fully mixed.
  4. You can taste the sausage mixture and adjust as needed by first pan frying a small amount or microwaving a small amount.
  5. Pipe the meat mixture into the hog casing as you prefer, such as a funnel, sausage maker, hand or electric grinder with sausage tube.
  6. Pan fry on low heat until cooked through, turning often to prevent burning, or grill until cooked through.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

This sounds good, uses ground chicken as the meat instead of beef. And in keeping with the spirit of fresh, I am going to write this to use more fresh and less canned items. On my to cook list for sure.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C (350 F). If not using a 12 inch heatproof pan, lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish. (I will verify the dish size when I make this.)
  2. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta until just tender, drain and set aside.
  3. While waiting on the pasta to cook, heat a large non stick pan on medium heat, add the oil. When hot, add the onion and cook until softened, then add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the chicken and steak seasoning, stir and cook until the chicken until browned, it cooks further in the oven. Drain any liquids from the pan.
  5. To the pan add the tomatoes, tomato paste, mustard, and dill relish. Simmer for a few minutes then turn off the heat. Stir in the pasta and stir to coat well.
  6. If using a oven proof pan, smooth out the mixture and add the shredded cheese evenly on the the top, place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the mixture bubbles and the cheese melted in.
  7. If using a baking dish, transfer the pasta mixture to a 9x13 baking dish, spread out evenly and add the shredded cheese evenly on the top and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the mixture bubbles and the cheese melted in.
  8. Sprinkle with diced tomatoes and salt and pepper as desired and serve.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Variant: 1. Use ground turkey in place of ground chicken.

Ingredients
For the Meatballs
For the Sauce
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, prepare the meatballs. Combine the chicken, egg, rice, onion, garlic, salt and pepper.
  2. Just mix with a large spoon.
  3. Roll the meatballs into 1 to 1 1/4 inch balls, ice cream scoop would work and I will get one to do this to verify the size. Roll each ball in flour and set on a lightly floured plate or surface.
  4. Heat a large pan over medium heat and add the oil. Use a regular stainless pan if you want a darker sauce or feel free to use a non stick pan which will give a lighter color sauce, this does not change the flavor of the sauce. When the pan is hot, add the meatballs and cook for 4 minutes without turning them, then flip over with tongs and cook 3 more minutes or until nice and golden brown and cooked through. Remove to a plate.
  5. To make the sauce, using the same pan on medium heat add the butter and when melted whisk in the flour and whisk until golden in color, then add the stock and whisk until it starts to thicken then whisk in the Greek yogurt (or sour cream or heavy cream) and season to taste, a good starting point would be 1/2 teaspoon paprika, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and salt to taste.
  6. Bring the sauce to a simmer and whisk until the sauce thickens, remember the sauce will also thicken as it cools. When the sauce will coat a meatball, add all the meatballs to the pan and turn each one to coat with the sauce.
  7. Serve with mashed potatoes or pasta once all the meatballs have heated and sprinkle with parsley for garnish.
Recipe Notes

Chicken thighs (you would grind or mince yourself, as I have never seen ground chicken here) would cost about 40 Baht/500 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 28 cents per serving. Outstanding value.

Ingredients
Servings: 3 inch patties
Instructions
  1. For the mushrooms, White Button or Cremini (which is a brown button mushroom) work well. For those in Thailand, think White Shimeji or Buna Shimeji (brown) mushrooms or Shiitake mushrooms. White Log mushrooms may work as well. The types that probably would not work well in this recipe is Ear Wood, Enoki, or King Oyster mushrooms. For this recipe I used mostly Buna Shimeji and Shiitake mushrooms.
  2. Slice/chop the mushrooms and cook in a non stick pan with 2 tablespoons of heated olive oil. Cook until lightly browned and softened and most of the water is cooked off. Drain.
  3. Add the cooked mushrooms into a food processor and mince, or if grinding the chicken yourself, just run them through the grinder. If you really have time, mince yourself by hand if desired. (I course ground chicken thighs then simply ran the mushrooms through the grinder right after the chicken was run through.)
  4. In a large bowl, add the chicken, the mushrooms, onion, eggs, panko, salt and pepper, mix to combine. I just used a large spoon, it mixes very easily.
  5. Use an ice cream scoop to make perfect size small patties, hand shape into 2-3 inches across for fritters , or just make larger patties for say a sandwich roll.
  6. In a large non stick pan, heat a splash of olive oil, add the patties, cover and cook about 3-4 minutes per side. When golden brown on each side, remove to paper towels to drain.
  7. Serve with a dipping sauce of your choice, or if you make lager patties, enjoy on a sandwich roll with lettuce and mayo.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I get the rate for 500 grams of mushrooms. I will estimate right now, low cost.

Variants: Think large patties, use on a sandwich roll or hamburger bun, dress with lettuce and mayo.

Ingredients
For the Meatballs
For the Curry
For the Coconut Rice
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Combine the Meatball Ingredients. With wet hands (this helps to keep the chicken from sticking to your hands) form golf-ball sized meatballs. Place the meatballs on a tray lined with parchment paper and chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Heat a large frying pan and fry the meatballs in a neutral oil, I would use rice bran or coconut oil, until they are browned all over. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the oil, and add the carrots and curry paste to the pan, cooking until the curry is slightly toasted. Add the garlic, fry for 10 seconds then add the coconut milk and chicken stock. Add the fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar and Thai chili and whisk to combine.
  4. Add the meatballs back into the pan and allow to simmer for 10 minutes before adding the snow peas and baby corn. Simmer for another 5 minutes.
  5. Serve the curry over coconut rice or in a lettuce cup. Garnish with sliced chilies, chopped cilantro, Thai basil, chopped peanuts and a lime wedge.
Recipe Notes

The chicken will cost about 75 Baht, if grinding yourself, go with a mixture of breasts and thighs. For 4 servings, this is about 55 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Coconut Rice.

Variants: If I was a betting man, I would say Beef or Pork Meatballs could be used as well. Now if you use curry powder instead of curry paste, you will change up the overall taste and make it more of an Indian dish.

  1. In a large bowl, add the ground chicken, salt, pepper, bread crumbs, parsley, eggs, and grate in 1/2 of the onion. Mix with your hands then shape into patties, try to make about 7-9 patties. Chop the other half of the onion and set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry patties until golden brown on each side in batches. They will not be done on the inside, they will cook through later. Set patties aside on a plate.
  3. Add the butter to the pan over medium heat until melted the add the mushrooms and onion and cook until tender, about 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle with the flour and stir to evenly coat, then cook for one minute then stir in the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce. Cook until gravy starts to thicken. Add the patties back into the gravy, cover with a lid, and cook in the sauce until patties are firm and cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Serve over rice (would not be my first choice), pasta, or mashed potatoes, spoon some gravy over the top, garnish with chopped parsley. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I make this. Ground chicken is not available where I live so I will grind myself using both breasts and thighs for an even balance of white and dark meat. For now, I will say this is low cost.

This sounds really easy and the meatballs are baked which will aide them keeping their shape.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix to just combine, do not over mix as that will result in a tough meatball.
  3. Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes until just cooked through, do not overcook or once again, tough meatballs. One inch meatballs should make about 50 meatballs.
  4. Now, if you have a specific need for 1 kilo of meatballs at one time, go ahead and use, but more than likely, you are going to freeze these. Let the meatballs cool to room temperature, then place on another baking sheet and put in the freezer, once frozen then place all in a freezer bag or container, then you can take out the meatballs you need for a specific recipe.
Recipe Notes

The Tesco website lists Grade A Mince Chicken as 79 Baht/kilo, which very good considering 50 meatballs or so and can be used in several dishes. Easily under $1 per serving.

Instructions
  1. Combine all of the meatball ingredients into a mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix or just a large spoon, do not over mix.
  2. Wet hands with some water and roll out meatball mixture into balls, make about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, like golf ball size.
  3. Brown meatballs on all sides in large non stick pan over medium-high heat in olive oil. You may have to do this in batches. Remove the meatballs when browned, place on a plate and set aside.
  4. Using the same pan, fry the onion and garlic until soft, then sprinkle with flour, stir, and cook a few minutes more. Then whisk in the chicken stock until no lumps remain, then whisk in the heavy cream or milk.
  5. Turn heat down to low. Sauce should barely be simmering. Stir in 3/4 of a cup of Parmesan cheese and a good pinch of black pepper. Check for seasoning. Add salt if it needed. Place the meatballs into the simmering sauce and simmer for 10 - 15 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through and sauce has thickened.
  6. Serve over pasta of your choice or mashed or boiled potatoes.
Recipe Notes

Chicken will cost about 32 Baht/500 grams. The Parmesan cheese however, will cost about 280+ Baht for grated, solid cheese you need to shave, even more. This comes to about $2.30 per serving for 4 servings. Costly but would be a good once a month meal.
