For the Alfredo Sauce
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large non stick pan (one that has a lid) and add the onion and garlic and saute until the onion is soft. Add the sausage and break that up with the spatula as it cooks.
  2. When the sausage is cooked through and no longer pink, stir in the wine and stock.
  3. Turn the heat to low, add the spinach and cover.cover the pan and allow mixture to come to a boil.
  4. Uncover and stir, allow mixture to reduce.
  5. While the pan is simmering on very low heat, heat a pot of salted water to boiling then cook the pasta until tender, then drain and rinse.
  6. While waiting for the pasta to cook, make the Alfredo sauce. Simply add the Alfredo sauce ingredients to a sauce pan on medium or medium low heat, and whisk continuously until the cheese is melted in and the sauce thickens.
  7. Add the sauce to the sausage mixture and mix together, pour the sauce over the drained and rinsed pasta.
  8. Serve, have grated Parmesan cheese for individual preference as well as salt and pepper, enjoy.
Recipe Notes

If you make the sausage yourself, very easy, the cost is about 50 Baht for the pork (using pork shoulder or butt). The cheese figure about 100 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about 75 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Pork Sausage.

Instructions
  1. In a large pot, add the chicken and cover with water, this can be a whole chicken, 3-4 breasts, or 3-4 quarters (separated), simmer until tender and cooked through, you are making a broth.
  2. Remove from heat and set aside to let cool to room temperature (makes for juicer chicken). Remove the chicken to a cutting board. Strain the broth and return to the pot. Debone and chop the chicken.
  3. Preheat your oven to 200 C (400 F) and get out a large baking dish, 9x13 should be perfect.
  4. Add water as needed to the pot in order to boil your pasta. Bring the pot of broth to a boil, and cook your pasta until just tender, drain pasta and return pasta to the pot.
  5. To the pasta, add the cheese, chopped tomatoes, chicken, soup, and season with salt, pepper, and onion powder to your liking, and mix together until the cheese is melted in. If the mixture is too thick, add some reserved tomato juice or water.
  6. Pour mixture into your baking dish and bake for 15 minutes, done,
  7. Serve, and of course, enjoy 🙂
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I get some chicken, overall I will say low cost.

Variants: 1. Skip the tomatoes and go with another can of cream of chicken soup. 2. Use cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken soup. 3. No need to bake, just serve after cheese is melted in on the stove top. 4. A diced bell pepper or two would be perfect in this. 5. Buy a rotisserie chicken and use that and make the stock from cube or powder to cook the pasta in.

Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Heat your pressure cooker on medium heat with a splash of cooking oil, no lid for this. When hot, brown the chicken pieces for a few minutes on each side, season as you desire with salt, pepper, and paprika and brown the pieces, you are browning not trying to cook the chicken through, that comes later, work in batches as needed. Return all the browned chicken to the pressure cooker and remove the cooker from the heat.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the BBQ sauce, water, onion, and vinegar. Pour sauce over the chicken. (I used the variant and went with Sriracha sauce.)
  3. Place the cooker back on the heat and secure the lid to the cooker. Turn heat to high to lock up the cooker and get the jiggler moving and releasing pressure. Start timing for 12 minutes and reduce the heat to maintain the jiggler movement and pressure release.
  4. At 12 minutes, turn off the heat and move the cooker to an unused burner to do a natural release of pressure, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Open pressure cooker carefully, plate with a side or two, serve. (Now out of fear of loosing a hand or arm during the feeding frenzy, no photos this time of a plated dish. This photo also shows 3 thighs have been removed.)
  6. This photo was leftovers on the day after and just nuked to reheat 🙂
Recipe Notes

Quarters (leg and thighs attached, just separate yourself in a few seconds), is about 55 Baht. Considering 6 servings, this is about 30 cents per meal, excluding sides.

Variants: 1. Swap out BBQ sauce for a chili sauce, think Sriracha (chili and garlic sauce) and this will be the first way I test this recipe. 2. Increase the chicken to 1.5 kilo (3 lbs), permitting on your pressure cooker.

The only time I have eaten fish coated in cornmeal was catfish in Tennessee, and that was years ago. Time to change this I will use shark catfish but it has a whitefish flavor, not at all like catfish. This is make as much as you want recipe, no servings, times, or quantities are listed for this (read that as simple).

Instructions
  1. Cut your whitefish fillets in half if you like, easier to manage that way.
  2. Place 3 shallow bowls on the counter, place some flour in the first bowl, 2-3 eggs in the next bowl and beat them with a fork, then some cornmeal in the last bowl. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the flour and the cornmeal.
  3. Heat a large non stick pan with a good splash of cooking oil. When the oil is hot, dredge each fillet in flour and shake off excess, then in egg and shake off excess, then in cornmeal, the into the hot oil. cook until golden brown on the bottom then turn fillets over and cook until golden brown, remove to paper towels. I am cooking the fish fillets on the right, my wife is cooking wontons on the left.
  4. When all the fillets are cooked, serve with a vegetable and a salad for a nice meal.
Recipe Notes

For the fish, go with about 130 Baht/1 kilo of Pangasius fillets. For 4 servings, this is about 96 cents per serving.

Servings: rolls
Instructions
  1. Place the Roll ingredients into your bread machine in the order listed, set the bread machine to Dough setting and let it run through the cycle.
  2. While the dough is getting worked over by the bread machine, heat a pan on medium heat with a splash of olive oil. When the pan is hot, add the mushrooms and about 1/3 of the garlic. Saute for about 10 minutes to evaporate the moisture released and to brown them up a bit.
  3. Remove the mushrooms to a mixing bowl and mix in the remaining garlic. Let this sit to cool. When the mushrooms are cooled, mix in the parsley, butter, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. When the dough cycle is complete, turn out the dough to a flowered surface and punch it down to release any air. Flour a rolling pin and roll out the dough to about 12 inches (30 cm) by 4 inches (10 cm), smallest side towards you. Trim the edges to make it roughly straight lines, not looking for perfection here, just straighten up shorter ends.
  5. Take the mushroom mixture and spread onto to the dough. cut the dough horizontally into 10 strips (you are going to make short strips, not long ones). Each strip should be about 3/4 to 1 inch wide (2-3 cm).
  6. Roll each strip and place on its side in a baking dish.
  7. Cover the dish with a towel and let it proof for about 20 minutes. Preheat your oven to 200 C (400 F).
  8. Remove the towel and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and with a brush, use the butter in the bottom of the pan and brush the tops of the rolls. If no butter is left, just melt 1-2 tablespoons and use that.
  9. Serve as a snack or a side.

I have not done this yet, but will soon. When I was growing up, we had a wood stove we cooked on, and it had an oven, I used to make the baked potatoes but inserted a large nail (very clean) into the potato, theory is that when the nail heats up it cooks the inside of the potato faster, seemed to work. This is on my to make list and soon. This is based on one potato per serving as a side.

  1. Season the beef on all sides with salt and pepper to your liking. Heat a splash of olive oil in your pressure cooker on medium heat and add the beef and cook to brown on all sides.
  2. When the beef is mostly browned, add the onion and saute until softened and starting to brown, then add the wine, mustard, and flour. Simmer until reduced a bit, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and carrot.
  3. Place the lid on the cooker (without the weight) and place to the locked position, then add the weight, and turn the heat to high.
  4. When the jiggler (the weight) starts moving, turn heat to low but maintain it hot enough to keep the jiggler moving. This is when you start timing, and for this dish, 18 minutes.
  5. My pressure cooker has a lid lock, meaning the lid cannot be opened when under pressure. The round pin in that circle in the lid is a gravity pin, when there is zero pressure in the pot, the pin is dropped and allows steam to escape while the pressure in increasing.
  6. When pressure builds inside the cooker, it forces the pin up and locks/prevents the lid from being removed, and is an indicator that vessel is pressurized at this point.
  7. At 18 minutes, turn the heat off and move the cooker to an unused burner and allow a natural release of pressure, meaning just let the pot sit and cool, takes about 10 to 15 minutes. If you have a lid lock, that will drop when the pressure is zero inside the pot.
  8. When it is safe to open the pot, remove the lid and stir in the cream cheese. Place the lid back on and lock it in place, return to high heat to bring the pot up to full pressure again, this goes much fast now since the contents are hot. When the jiggler starts to move indication full pressure, reduce the heat to low to maintain high pressure for 4 minutes.
  9. When 4 minutes have passed, turn the heat off and move the cooker to an unused burn and allow a natural release of pressure, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  10. When safe to open, remove the lid and give the stroganoff a stir.
  11. Serve with mashed potatoes, pasta, or rice.
Recipe Notes

The beef will cost about 200 Baht for 750 grams. For 4 servings, this is about $1.47 per serving.
