This is a spin off from the 3-Ingredient Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops, which uses a packet, or homemade, Ranch Dressing. Ranch dressing has dried dill, dried parsley, dried diced onion, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper (those are the basic ingredients), so in this, I stepped it up to fresh dill, fresh garlic, fresh onion, and used pork loin instead of chops.

Instructions
  1. I am going to use use fresh onion, garlic, and dill, and no added salt.
  2. Tesco has excellent pork loin, can get 3-4 thick slices from each piece. Here is the 6 pieces I am going to use for this recipe.
  3. Place the diced onion in the bottom of your slow cooker. Place a layer of pork loin, then sprinkle with half the pepper, parsley, garlic, and dill. Place another layer of pork loin and sprinkle the remaining pepper, parsley, garlic, and dill.
  4. Prepare your chicken gravy, I use Lobo brand (Thai product which is very good), let the gravy cool for a few minutes, then pour over the pork loin, do worry if the dill sort of floats away in places, it is all cooked together.
  5. Set the cooker to Low setting for 6 to 8 hours, cover and cook for 6 hours without removing the cover, then check the tenderness. Time is variable with thickness of the slices. for thin, less than 1 inch check at 6 hours, for 1 inch check at 7 hours, for 1 1/2 inch check at 7 and you may need to cook another hour. If not tender, cook for another hour and check again. Once tender, if not serving right away, just switch the cooker to Warm setting.
  6. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice, or pasta, and spoon the gravy over everything, add a vegetable for a side and you have a complete meal. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Pork loin in Tesco will cost about 170 Baht/1 1/2 kilos, for 6 servings, this is about 90 cents per serving.

My own creation based on another recipe to use fresh ingredients and pork loin instead of costlier pork chops. Lee Thayer.

Instructions
  1. Rub or mist your slow cooker with olive oil to make clean up easier. Not required but is handy.
  2. Sprinkle the loin well with salt and pepper, be generous. Place the loin in the slow cooker, add 1/2 cup of water and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours, or High setting for 3 to 4 hours. This is two pieces of loin, 1 kilo, I also use these and cut in half for boneless pork chops 🙂
  3. Check tenderness at 6 and 3 hours respectively, if the pork shreds easily with a fork, it is done. When done, shred with two forks right in the slow cooker, nothing to fine, just good bite sized pieces.
  4. 20 minutes before you want to serve, place a pot on the stove and add the broth and heat to boiling then add the noodles and cook until just tender. The stock should be mostly absorbed. If there is still liquid, go ahead and drain some of that off.
  5. Use a slotted spoon and remove the pork from the slow cooker and add to the noodles.
  6. Stir to combine well. If the pork is not hot enough, heat the pot on very low heat for a few minutes, add a tablespoon or so of liquid from the slow cooker to prevent sticking, this is not a soupy dish. Taste and season as needed with salt and pepper.
  7. Serve with a salad for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

Going with 1 kilo of pork loin, cost would be 115 Baht, for 6 servings, this is about 56 cents per serving.

Variants: 1. Add cooked cabbage or sauerkraut, add sliced mushrooms. 2. Stir in a cup of chicken gravy (which sounds awesome!).

This is Chinese in origin, but adapted to Thai cooking. This recipe is from a seasoning packet, as many westerners seem to be cautious with using these. This is straight forward and easy. And keep in mind, the Lobo brand packet has two packets inside for making this dish twice, cost savings right there. This packet is available in the US at most Asian markets. This is a very nice, mild flavor, the red is not from chili powder.

  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.

Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Using a large, big enough to hold the pork loin, add about 3 inches of water and add the chili pods, onion, garlic, salt. Boil this for about 30 minutes, then remove to the chilies and 2 cups of the liquid from the pot and put in a bowl to cool.
  2. Place the pork loin in the same pot and add water to cover the meat. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for about 2-3 hours, until it can easily be shredded with two forks or with your hands. Remove the pot from the burner and leave the meat in the pot and let cool to room temperature.
  3. When the chilies and 2 cups of water is cooled, add both to a blender and blend until smooth, pour into bowl and stir in a pinch of salt. When the meat has cooled, remove that from the broth and drain for a few minutes, retain the broth in the pot, then place the meat in a large bowl and shred with two forks or your hands, then pour in half of the half of the chili mixture and mix that into the shredded meat, set aside.
  4. In another pot, bring some water to a boil and add the corn husks, reduce to a simmer for about an hour, this is to make the husks very soft.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, beat the lard with a tablespoon of the broth from the pot until fluffy. Combine the masa harina, baking powder, and salt, then stir that into the lard mixture, adding more broth as needed to form a spongy dough.
  6. Take one of the husks and pull some strands from it, each strand about an 1/8 inch wide, these will be used to tie each tamale.
  7. Place husk on your work surface, at the large end of the husk, spread some dough about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick, keeping away from the edges and away from the tapered end, place one tablespoon of meat mixture on the dough in the center, then fold the sides of the husks towards the center to cover the filling, then fold the tapered end up and tie one of the strands around the tamale, then stand this up in your steamer, open end up, repeat to fill the steamer. Steam for an hour or until the husk easily pulls away from the tamale. Remove the husks from what you are going to serve and drizzle the remaining chili sauce over and top with sour cream.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this other than the pork, some of the ingredients I have yet to see here although I was never looking for those items. For now I will say fair cost.

Tip: Rendering Lard.
