Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the 11 ingredients, mix well. Shape into 1 1/2 inch meatballs. Place meatballs in a container, cover, and place in the fridge for 1 hour.
  2. When ready to cook, heat the oil in a large non stick pan, when hot, add the meatballs, work in batches if needed, brown the meatballs all over, turning gently until they are firmed up.
  3. Once browned, add the stock, cover, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 40 minutes or until cooked through, turning occasionally.

  5. Serve meatballs with pasta, mashed potatoes, or rice, with the gravy spooned over the top.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 150 Baht for the beef and 30 Baht for the pork. For 6 servings, this is about 88 cents per serving.

Variants: 1. Make the gravy from a package, Lobo Brand is very good. 2. Add chopped fresh mushrooms to the gravy.

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, add the beef, fish sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Using a fork or your hands, mix gently until just combined, do not over mix or you get a tougher burger.
  2. Divide the mixture into 4 sections and using your hands, form into patties and place them on a baking sheet lined with foil. Do not pack the beef too tightly or compact it as this will result in tough burgers. Using your thumb, form a slight indent into the center of each patty. Cover the tray with plastic and refrigerate for at least half an hour, or up to a day.
  3. When ready to cook, remove the burgers from the fridge. Heat a heavy bottomed skillet over high heat until quite hot, cast iron would be perfect. Add the butter or oil. Season the burgers with a sprinkle of salt (this helps form a nice crust) and place gently in the pan. They should sizzle violently if the pan is hot enough.
  4. Cook, flipping every couple of minutes until desired doneness. 10-12 minutes for well done, less if you prefer medium/rare. Do not overcook or the burgers will dry out. Also, do not press down on the burgers while cooking or poke them or pierce them in any way, just let them cook in peace until nicely browned all over.
  5. If using cheese, add on the top a minute before you remove from the pan.
  6. Remove the patties from the pan to a plate to rest just for a couple of minutes, meanwhile return the pan to the heat and place your sliced buns in (cut side down) to toast for a bit and soak up all the lovely juices left in the pan from the burgers.
  7. Assemble the burgers with toppings of your choice. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 150 Baht for 750 grams of good beef. For 4 servings, this is about $1.10 per serving.

I have made this countless times when growing up, probably weekly for years, but we used venison for this. Key thing here is equal amounts of beef and potatoes with an onion or two thrown in. Servings, prep, and cook times are approximate for now until I make this here using an electric meat grinder.

  1. Cut the beef, regardless of how you cooked it into chunks that fit in the hopper of your grinder. Cut the potatoes into quarters and for big potatoes, cut the quarters in half as well. Cut the onion(s) into quarters and cut each piece in half.
  2. Run everything through your grinder, chuck of beef, potato, onion, until everything is ground.
  3. Heat the cooking oil, bacon fat would be perfect, in a large frying pan, preferably a cast iron, on medium high to high heat.
  4. Add the hash to the frying pan so that a half an inch of hash covers the bottom of the pan. If you have more hash to cook, do so in separate batches. Brown the hash, stirring only infrequently at first to make sure that the hash has an opportunity to brown well.
  5. As you cook the hash, add pinches of salt and fresh ground pepper. Do this a couple of times with each batch of hash. Cook for at least 10 minutes and until the hash is well browned. Serve with ketchup, important.
Recipe Notes

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

Been making this for many years.

  1. In a bowl mix the egg with the milk.
  2. In another bowl, mix the flour and panko together. In 5-10 piece batches, soak chicken chunks in milk mixture then roll in flour mixture, then dip in milk again, then roll in the flour mixture. Do this until all the chicken is coated. This builds up a nice coating on the chicken.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and brown your chicken on all sides. You will not be fully cooking the chicken, just giving it a nice brown color. Place the chicken pieces into your slow cooker.
  4. In another small bowl, mix together the orange juice, brown sugar, vinegar, salt, and ketchup, add more sugar if you want a sweeter taste. Pour the sauce over the chicken and carefully toss to coat the chicken pieces.
  5. Cover and cook on Low setting for 6 hours or High setting for 3 hours. Serve over steamed rice.
Recipe Notes

Chicken breasts will cost about 50 Baht/750 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 37 cents per serving.
