Ingredients
Servings: sandwich
Instructions
  1. For tender and juicy pork, use of a pressure cooker is highly recommended. You can cook the pork anyway you prefer. There is a link in Recipe Notes for how I prepare pork shoulder/butt in a pressure cooker. Amount of pork is up to you, when I make this I use 1 1/2 kilos (3 lbs).
  2. After the pork is cooked, place on a cutting board and use two forks to shred it, then place the pork in your slow cooker and set to Low setting.
  3. Add BBQ sauce as needed to coat all the shredded pork. Leave the pork on Low for about 30 minutes to heat everything through.
  4. When the pulled pork is good and hot, lay out a slice of rye bread, then add a slice of onion, as thick as you like it, add some pickle slices.
  5. Scoop on some hot BBQ pulled pork.
  6. Top that with sliced Provolone, as many slices as you like.
  7. Top with another slice of rye and enjoy. (Great photo except for the fly on the sandwich, oh well, it happens.)
Recipe Notes

Low cost, well under $1 per sandwich.

Shortcuts: Pork Shoulder/Butt (Pressure Cooker), Light Rye Bread, Fridge Pickles, BBQ Sauce.

Variants. 1. Use a cheese of your choice. 2. Use lettuce in place of the onion or in addition to the onion. 3. Leave out the pickles or replace with hot peppers. 4. Use sandwich rolls in place of rye bread, or use any bread you like.

Ingredients
Servings: sandwiches
Instructions
  1. Drain the sardines and place in a bowl, add the mayo and chopped pickle. Mix with a fork, mashing up the sardines. If using homemade sardines, use about 3 pieces.
  2. Lay out the 4 slices of bread, spread mayo on each slice. On 2 slices, add a layer of sliced tomato, spread on 1/2 the sardine mixture, top that with lettuce leaves, then add a layer of sliced egg, season with salt and pepper as desired. Top with a slice of bread, mayo side down. Cut in half and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

One tin of sardines in olive oil at Tesco is 59 Baht. For two sandwiches, 1 per serving, this is about 92 cents per serving. I do list the shortcut for homemade sardines in olive oil, but the cost of the oil does not really reduce the cost of the sardines overall.

Shortcuts: Fridge Pickles, Perfect Hard Boiled Chicken Eggs, Steamed Eggs, Sardines in Olive Oil.

Variant: 1. Us a good amount of softened cream cheese on the bread in place of the mayo.

I made these last night, have not had one in 12 years or so, true comfort food. Bologna is here, mainly just eaten as a snack item straight from the fridge. My wife very much enjoyed these. I did not make anything that is not here, just prepared it in a way the Thais are not accustomed to, the family really likes it when I use common items to make a "new" dish they have not had before. This is a nothing more than a guide, not a recipe. Keep in mind, Thai bologna is smaller diameter than in the US.

Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. For the crab, you can use canned (drained), fresh picked, or even imitation. If using imitation, just cut each crab stick into 1/4 inch pieces and use your hands to break them apart, very easy and will be the first way I prepare this.
  2. Mix up the filling in a bowl, room temp, you want the filling to be good and soft as you are going to spread this after the first slice of bread is in the pan. Heat a non stick pan on medium low or low heat.
  3. Spread some mayo on two slices of bread, place one slice, mayo side down on parchment paper, spread some filling on that slice, be generous, then top with the second slice of bread, mayo side up. Place in the hot pan.
  4. When the bottom is golden brown, flip and cook the other side until golden brown.
  5. Remove from pan, cut in half from corner to corner, or best you can with homemade bread, serve.
  6. Repeat for additional sandwiches.
  7. Serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

The Cream cheese will cost about 60 Baht/125 grams. The imitation crab will cost about 50 Baht/140 grams. (When I buy fresh crab, I will price this once I pick 140 grams.) Figure 3 servings, this is about $1.08 per serving.
