This recipes comes from a good friend in Thailand, and it is very good. the vinegar used is a good combination, but I think when I make this again, I will play around the they types of vinegar. This is a pressure cooker recipe and I will verify use my large 9 liter (9 1/2 quart) stove top model. Follow the safety precautions for your model of pressure cooker at all times.

Instructions
  1. Place your pressure cooker, no lid used yet, on medium high heat and heat the oil, when hot, lightly brown the chicken, you are not looking to cook through, just brown it on both sides.
  2. Remove the chicken and cook in batches if needed until all are browned. When taking the chicken out, any pieces stuck to the bottom, no worries, just loosen them up when making the sauce.
  3. Add the onion and saute until starting to soften, then add the garlic and saute for another minute until fragrant.
  4. Add the soy sauce, both vinegars, bay leaves, peppercorns, and brown sugar.
  5. Bring to a simmer then add the chicken back to the pot.
  6. Place the lid on the pot and lock that and add the weight (jiggler), turn heat to high and bring to high pressure, when the jiggler starts to move, indicating full pressure, reduce the heat to low or medium low to keep the jiggler still moving and venting pressure.
  7. Start timing for 8 minutes. When 8 minutes have passed, turn off the heat and carefully move the cooker to an unused burner and allow the pressure to release naturally, about 10-15 minutes.
  8. When you have indication of zero pressure in the cooker (for my stove top model there is a pin that will drop), remove the jiggler, then open the lid.
  9. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon to a serving plate. Tender and juicy chicken adobo, but we are not done yet 🙂
  10. Place the cooker, without the lid, back on medium high heat, stir often and reduce the sauce to thicken it.
  11. Spoon sauce over the chicken and serve. If having white rice as a side dish, spoon some sauce over the rice as well. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Go with about 105 Baht for 4-5 quarters (2 kilos, 4 lbs). For 4 servings this is about 80 cents per serving.

Ingredients
For the Marinade
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, add all of the Marinade ingredients and whisk together. Reserve 1 cup of marinade for basting chicken later. (Cover the cup and place in the fridge until needed.)
  2. Add the chicken to a large zip lock bag then pour in the marinade. Squeeze out the air and zip the bag closed. Squish the chicken around to coat everything well. Place in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight for a more robust flavor.
  3. Grill chicken (using the cover as well) on medium heat and cook for 6-8 minutes each side, until no longer pink inside and juices run clear. Use the reserved marinade and baste the chicken during the last 5 minutes of grilling.
  4. Garnish with sliced spring onion and serve.
Recipe Notes

The chicken will cost 125 Baht/2 kilos. For 6 servings, this is about 65 cents per serving.

This not only sounds incredibly good, it really is! A Japanese curry roux is used, brand is up to you, Golden Curry, Vermont House, House, etc. I will be using medium spicy Golden Curry which is excellent. I used my large 9 liter (9 1/2 quart) stove top pressure cooker for this. I will also state the times for using a electric model (6 quart or above). Follow the safety procedures for your model of pressure cooker at all times. This will be the only way I make this from now on, hands down. This works equally well with pork or beef in the same amount stated for the chicken. For the photos below, I used fresh pork loin.

Instructions
  1. Place the peeled and quartered potatoes in a bowl of water to remove some of the starch. Keep them in the water until they are needed.
  2. To chop the carrots, this is pretty cool. Cut a piece of the carrot off at an angle, then rotate the carrot 1/4 turn, cut another piece off at an angle, repeat the turning and cutting. This makes for bite size pieces and the technique is Japanese in origin, called Rangiri.
  3. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Once everything is prepped, we're ready to start.
  4. Place your stove top pressure cooker on a burner on medium heat, lid off, and add the cooking oil. When the oil is hot, add the onion, garlic, and ginger. Saute for just a minute or two until the garlic and ginger is fragrant.
  5. Add the chicken to the cooker and mix around to coat the pieces with some of the oil. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
  6. Drain the potatoes and add those and the carrots to the cooker, mix everything together.
  7. Pour in the stock and stir into the mixture, it is not necessary to have everything covered with stock.
  8. I used a large, 240 gram package of Golden Curry.
  9. Japanese curry comes in 110 gram and 240 gram packages, it looks very much like a chocolate bar. Use either 2 small packages or 1 large package. Open the foil seals and break the sections into the pieces as indicated by the packaging. For Golden Curry, large pack, you will use the entire pack, it is in two sections, and each section has 4 pieces, so 8 pieces total.
  10. Break the curry up as shown by the markings, very much like a chocolate bar.
  11. Place the curry cubes on the top of the cooker contents, do not mix these in, but you can push down into the stock.
  12. Now place the lid and jiggler on the cooker and lock the lid. Bring the temp to high. Once the jiggler starts moving and venting pressure, start your timer for 5 minutes. (For those using an electric type pressure cooker, select meat/stew setting and change the time for 15 minutes and press start.)
  13. When the time has has passed, remove from heat to an unused burner to allow a natural release, about 10-15 minutes. (For the electric models, turn off the keep warm function and do with a steam release or allow a natural release.)
  14. When it is safe to remove the lid, remove that, and stir in the ketchup, soy sauce, and oyster sauce.
  15. Place the cooker, no lid, on low heat and simmer the curry for about 5 minutes, making sure all the curry blocks are dissolved and mixed in. Perfect!
  16. To serve, spoon rice into half a bowl, and ladle in some curry on the other side. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Variant: 1. Use beef or pork, same weight as chicken.

Ingredients
Servings:
Instructions
  1. If using hog casings packed in salt, you will need to soak and rinse them following the suppliers instructions. If using dry hog casing, set them aside until needed, the just need a minute or two in water and can be used. You can also use collagen casings if you prefer.
  2. Add everything to a mixing bowl, except the sausage casings, mix together well using your hands. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour.
  3. Prepare your casings and using your preferred method, stuff the casings. Tie into about 6 to 8 inch links.
For Air Drying
  1. Wrap the sausage in parchment paper and leave in the hot sun for 3 days to dry out (like on a window ledge, but out of reach of cats or dogs.) When dried out and firm, store in a sealed bag in the fridge.
For Oven Drying
  1. Place the sausage on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and place in a 80 C (175 F) oven for 3-4 hours or until the sausage is firm. When dried out and firm, store in a sealed bag in the fridge.
To Cook
  1. The sausage will be quite firm. If to your going to use is a stir fry, best to steam the sausage for about 5-10 minutes to soften it up.
  2. You can also just place on rice in your rice cooker and cook the rice as normal, this will lightly flavor the rice and cooks the sausage through for a light meal.
