Ingredients
For the Marinade
Choose from 2 or 3 Vegetables
Servings: servings
Instructions
  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.

Ingredients
Servings: bombs
Instructions
  1. The original recipe stated 'chunks' of Cheddar cheese, I think a safe bet would be to use a block of Cheddar and cut it into 3/4 inch cubes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes, egg, and salt and pepper. In a shallow bowl, add the bread crumbs.
  3. Grab a small scoop of mashed potatoes and gently form that around a cube of Cheddar.
  4. Roll the mashed potato ball in the bread crumbs to evenly coat it, then wrap a slice of bacon around the ball and fasten with a toothpick or wooden skewer.
  5. Heat a deep heavy skillet with 2 inches of oil to near 180 C but not smoking. Fry the bombs in the hot oil until golden brown brown, drain on paper towels and allow to cool for several minutes.
  6. Serve with sour cream or dipping sauces of your choice.
Recipe Notes

Low cost. Once I make these I will figure an accurate amount.

Shortcuts: Bread Crumbs, Sour Cream.

My wife and I have been doing this about once a month. Easy, great when family visits and you need to prepare a lot, and is a great way to get the little ones helping out as well. Thais like a good BBQ, and they love bacon, so what started out with just chicken livers and hearts has turned into a using mushrooms, baby corn, small sausages, shrimp, etc. No number of servings is stated, this is a make as much or as little as you like. The ingredients are suggested items but you can certainly use what you like or have on have on hand.

What to Wrap...
Servings:
Instructions
  1. First thing is fire up your grill is using charcoal, if using gas, you can turn that on after everything is prepped.
  2. Open up the bag of skewers, bacon, and get out the veggies and or chicken livers, hearts, sausages, etc. Chicken livers you can leave whole or cut in half, Straw mushrooms leave whole, and for the Shimeji mushrooms you will need to trim off the root ends.
  3. On a plate or cutting board, lay down a strip of bacon so one end is facing away from you, place an item on the end closest to you, and simply roll it up in the bacon, run a skewer this. you can place 3-4 items on each skewer. Place the full skewers on a plate. Continue until everything is wrapped. Cover with foil.
  4. Place the skewers over hot coals on your grill. The cooking time is basically to crisp up the bacon, even for the chicken livers, when the bacon is crispy, the liver will be done as well.
  5. Place cooked skewers on a plate and and watch them disappear while cooking another batch, let people help themselves to the skewers of their choice and serve potato or pasta salad, and corn on the cob on the side.
Recipe Notes

Over all this would be low cost and is a great way to feed a crowd. Get the kids involved, show them once and they will remember, try to keep up with them.

Been making these years.

Instructions
  1. Take the pork and cut into thin strips.
  2. Mix the marinade ingredients together and add the pork. Refrigerate over night, or if pushed for time, marinate for at least 2 hours prior to grilling.
  3. Soak the skewers in water to prevent burning. Light your grill, charcoal would be preferred, when the coals are ready, no more flames, skewer the pork strips and grill until done, turning as needed. Serve as an appetizer or main meal with sides of your choice.
Recipe Notes

For pricing I will use pork shoulder at 103 Baht/kilo, A kilo would make a lot of sticks of meat! For an estimate of say 8 people (an average Thai family get together), this is about 38 cents per person. Great value.
