Feel free to make this with a range of ground meats, such as pork, beef, chicken, or turkey. This sounds really good, and I made this on 17 May 2018, delicious! Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the ground meat, 1/2 the onion, 1/2 the oregano, egg, garlic, carrot, and rice. Then get in there with your clean hands and mix this together. (I used 750 grams of pork (1 1/2 lbs) so I used 2 eggs.)
  2. Shape the mixture into 10 balls and place each in your slow cooker. (I used 750 grams of pork (1 1/2 lbs) so I made 12 good sized meatballs.)
  3. Wipe out the mixing bowl, then add the soup, Worcestershire sauce, remaining oregano, remaining onion, and the can of water or 1 1/4 cups of water if you made the shortcut. Mix well. (Big change here I used 3 cups of condensed soup.)
  4. Pour the sauce over the meatballs. Set the slow cooker to High setting and cook for 4 hours then switch to Low setting got 1 more hour. (Big change here I used 3 cups of condensed soup.)
  5. When ready, use a large spoon to scoop out the meatballs, this photo is with 3 meatballs and 2 scoops of gravy removed already.
  6. Serve with mashed potatoes, pasta, or rice.
Recipe Notes

Thinking just ground pork or chicken, this is low cost per serving.

Shortcut: Condensed Tomato Soup.

Variant: 1. If you go heavy on the meat, say, 750 grams (1 1/2 lbs) like I did, add another egg, touch more seasoning, and 3 cups of soup.

This sounds good, and is a first for me to have Korean writing on the site as well, which is always cool to add the other languages. This is a fried rice dish inside an omelet. Originating in Japan then spread to other Asian countries. The main flavoring, ketchup 🙂

  1. Heat a large non stick skillet on medium heat with 2 tablespoons of oil, when hot, add the onion, spring onion, carrot, and pork. Stir fry until the pork is cooked through and the onion is soft, then stir in the soy sauce and season with salt and pepper as desired.
  2. Add the rice, stirring to break up any clumps until it is mixed well, then add the ketchup, taste, and season with salt and pepper as desired. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. Same pan, heat a small amount of olive oil, while the oil is heating, break two eggs into a small bowl, whisk with a fork and add a pinch of salt and pepper if desired. Add the eggs to the hot pan and swirl them around to cover the bottom of the pan.
  4. When the bottom is set and the top of the eggs are a bit runny, turn off the heat and spoon in half of the rice mixture down the center of the eggs.
  5. Fold over both sides and and slide the omelet to the side of the pan, then flip onto a plate. Repeat the process for the second omelet.
  6. Drizzle some ketchup on the top of each and serve.

Ingredients
For the Dough
For the Filling
For the Dipping Sauce
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. First make the dough. In a large bowl mix the flour and salt. Now add boiling water gradually and start mixing it using a wooden spoon. When the dough becomes cool enough to handle, start kneading it with hand. Add some dry flour if it gets sticky and continue kneading until it becomes soft. Cover it with a damp kitchen towel and keep it aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Now prepare the filling. Add chicken, carrot, leek (if using), garlic, spring onion in a large bowl and mix them together. Season with soy sauce, salt and black pepper to taste and mix well. Set aside.
  3. Now to make the dim sum casing. Take the dough and knead it again. Take small ball of dough of about 1 inch diameter. Roll it into a thin circle about 2 inches diameter and about 1/8 of an inch thick. Make sure the casing is thin, else it will not cook thoroughly and will not let the chicken cook evenly.
  4. To stuff the dim sum, place about 1 tablespoon of filling and place in the center of the circle, shape it by gathering up the edges and forming a cylinder but do not crimp it on the top.
  5. Once all the dim sums are shaped, steam them on medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Keep the steamer covered during steaming.
  6. While the dim sums are steaming, make the dipping sauce by mixing all the Sipping Sauce ingredients in a bowl until well combined, set aside.
  7. You can check by inserting a toothpick in the center of a dim sum and it should come out clean, isn't that cool? When cooked through, take them out and garnish with the chopped greens of spring onions. Serve hot along with the dipping sauce.
Recipe Notes

Low cost for 250 grams of minced chicken.

Variant: In place of chicken, use chopped shrimp to make Shrimp Dim Sum, same steps as listed, how easy is that?
