Instructions
  1. Heat a large non stick pan (I use a pot) with a splash of olive oil, and add the onion and garlic, cook until the onion is turning translucent.
  2. then add the beef, breaking it up with a spatula as it cooks. Drain any fat. To the beef, now add the 1 1/2 cups stock, bouillon cube, salt, pepper, basil, and parsley. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the 1/4 cup cold stock to a measuring cup and stir in the cornstarch. Cold makes it easier to mix without lumps. Pour this into hamburger mixture and simmer for about two minutes, stirring often, until thickened.
  4. Serve over mashed potatoes with your choice of sides and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 150 Baht for the ground beef. For 4 servings, this is about $1.10 per serving.

Shortcut: Seasoned Salt.

Perfect side dish and even got the thumbs up from my mother in law, and she does not give that out easily. Takes just a bit longer than most green bean recipes as you will need to steam some items and saute other items, but for the most part, you can do both at the same time. For those viewers not in Asia, a long bean is just a green bean but can be 1-3 feet long. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Instructions
  1. Cut the carrots into 1 inch pieces, then cut each piece into strips about equal in diameter to the beans.
  2. Steam the long (green) beans for about 3-5 minutes until tender to the bite, depending on how crisp and tender you like the beans. Remove and set aside. (You can steam the carrots for about 1-2 minutes, then add the beans and steam together until crisp, which is what I did.)
  3. Steam the carrots for about 3-8 minutes, depending on the size and how crisp and tender you like carrots. Remove and set aside.
  4. Melt the butter in a large pan over medium heat, Saute the onion and garlic until the onion is translucent, add the mushrooms and cook until almost tender, cover and reduce heat to low and simmer for 2-3 minutes, stir in the carrots and green beans, salt, seasoned salt, and white pepper. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to heat everything through. (Mushrooms I used was a 150 gram package of Shimeji mushrooms, chopped.)
  5. Serve as a side dish.
