Now I am not a fan of adobo, in the Navy, on the 4 ships I served on, adobo was on the menu every week, and sometimes twice a day. This is the first adobo recipe on my site, and I will try this as well, as it has been many years since I have eaten adobo. This is also a 5 ingredient and slow cooker meal so that is a bonus.

  1. For the sugars, you can reduce the amount based on the sweetness of your apples.
  2. Place the apples as you prepare them into your slow cooker, after they are done, add the sugars, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix together.
  3. Set your slow cooker to Low and cook for 10 hours, stirring every 2 hours or so. When the apple butter is thick and dark brown, it is ready.

I have never made applesauce before so I researched and found this, basically peeled, cored, and sliced apples and cooked with a bit of water, and if desired, sugar and salt as well. I made this on 14 Dec 2017, and wow is this better than from a jar, which is not available here. I have changed this up to a slow cooker recipe, which is perfect for the controlled heat.

  1. Layer the ingredients in the slow cooker starting with the potatoes.
  2. Then add the long beans.
  3. Then add the sausage. Pour the broth over the top. For this dish, I used 240 grams of Italian sausage.
  4. And another 270 grams of Vietnamese sausage, it is just a recipe, not set in stone, feel free to use sausage of your choice.
  5. Cover and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours. Do not remove the cover before 6 hours. When the potatoes are fork tender, you can serve after that or switch to Warm to serve later. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
  6. Served with fresh baked bread on the side, perfect meal.
Recipe Notes

Going with my purchase of Cumberland sausage at 178 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about $1.31 per serving.

Variants 1. Use other types of sausage, Cumberland would be a good choice, Italian, Bangers, even Vietnamese sausage would be good in this. 2. Use pork or chicken stock in place of the vegetable stock.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Rub or mist your slow cooker with olive oil to make clean up easier. Not required but is handy.
  2. Sprinkle the loin well with salt and pepper, be generous. Place the loin in the slow cooker, add 1/2 cup of water and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours, or High setting for 3 to 4 hours. This is two pieces of loin, 1 kilo, I also use these and cut in half for boneless pork chops 🙂
  3. Check tenderness at 6 and 3 hours respectively, if the pork shreds easily with a fork, it is done. When done, shred with two forks right in the slow cooker, nothing to fine, just good bite sized pieces.
  4. 20 minutes before you want to serve, place a pot on the stove and add the broth and heat to boiling then add the noodles and cook until just tender. The stock should be mostly absorbed. If there is still liquid, go ahead and drain some of that off.
  5. Use a slotted spoon and remove the pork from the slow cooker and add to the noodles.
  6. Stir to combine well. If the pork is not hot enough, heat the pot on very low heat for a few minutes, add a tablespoon or so of liquid from the slow cooker to prevent sticking, this is not a soupy dish. Taste and season as needed with salt and pepper.
  7. Serve with a salad for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

Going with 1 kilo of pork loin, cost would be 115 Baht, for 6 servings, this is about 56 cents per serving.

Variants: 1. Add cooked cabbage or sauerkraut, add sliced mushrooms. 2. Stir in a cup of gravy.

Instructions
  1. You need 2 to 2 1/2 kilos of cooked Italian meatballs, these can be party size (gold ball size) or larger dinner size. You have several options to do this. 1. You can use what ever meatball recipe you are familiar with. 2. Use the meatball recipe on this site, which can be made on the day you are making this recipe, or from frozen as it is a general make ahead type recipe, link is in Recipe Notes section. 3. Last resort, you can use store bought frozen meatballs. If using frozen meatballs, thaw them, if using fresh made AND cooked meatballs, they need to be cooled to room temperature.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the soup (if using homemade from the short, it needs to be room temperature), sour cream, and water. Mix, then add the meatballs and mix those in to ensure all are coated well.
  3. Refrigerate the meatballs and mixture overnight. this allows the meatballs to absorb the flavors.
  4. The next day, pour the meatballs and mixture into your slow cooker and set to Low setting until the mixture is hot and the meatballs heated through.
  5. If the meatballs did not soak overnight, heat on Low setting for a longer time, 3-5 hours so they can absorb the flavor and have a better taste to them.
  6. For party size meatballs, serve as appetizers. For dinner size meatballs, I would serve over cooked pasta along with the sauce.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 500 Baht/2 1/2 kilos of beef. Source it locally and you may get it for less. This recipe makes a lot so I will just state now Low cost until I make these and verify serving sizes.

Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil in a non stick pan. While that is heating, place the flour in a large bowl add season with salt and pepper to taste, mix in the beef to coat. When the oil is hot, add the beef to the pan in batches to brown all sides, not cooking it through just browning it a bit. Place browned beef in your slow cooker.
  2. Once all the beef is browned and in the slow cooker, pour in the stock, diced tomatoes (these can be canned or fresh), Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and stir, then add the potatoes, carrots, onion, celery, oregano, garlic, and bay leaf.
  3. Stir to mix then cover and set the slow cooker to Low setting and cook for 8 hours.
  4. Whisk together the cornstarch and water, pour into the slow cooker and stir to mix into the stew, cover the pot and set to High setting for another 30 minutes to an hour to thicken the stew.
  5. Serve with biscuits or bread.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 300 Baht for the beef. For 6 servings this is about #1.47 per serving.

Shortcut: Tenderize Beef with Tomatoes.

Variant: 1. Instead of adding potatoes to the stew at the beginning, serve the stew over mashed potatoes. To do this, increase the stock used by a cup to allow a soupier stew that will go well with mashed potatoes.
