Sounds really good, a nice comfort food. This is a Slow Cooker version, which would be perfect for Thai beef. I will verify the slow cooker time with Low setting when I make this, and soon.

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.

Shortcuts: Italian Meatballs, Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, Sour Cream.

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.

  1. You can use standard bone in or boneless pork chops this. I used 4 thick cut (1 1/2 to 2 inches thick, 350 to 430 grams each) boneless loin chops, read the Variant listed below if you want to use these.
  2. Place the pork chops in your slow cooker, top the chops with the mushrooms and garlic.
  3. Mix together the wine and soup, pour over the chops. (This photo is from about an hour into cooking.)
  4. Cover and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours. Check for tenderness at 6 hours, if tender they are ready to be served, if not tender to your liking, continue cooking and keep checking every hour. Serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

For the pork chops I used, the thick cut loin chops, 4 of them were 200 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about $1.47 per serving.

Shortcut: Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup.

Variant: Use thick cut boneless loin chops or any chops thicker than 1 inch, if you want to use these, first, pound each chop with a needle tenderizer, two, you may need to extend the cooking time for tender chops but you do risk drying them out as well, so keep checking tenderness from 6 hours on.

Low cost. With some planning, plan on a chicken dish that uses boiled shredded chicken, then you can make the stock for this by simply adding trinity when boiling the chicken, and use several tablespoons of the chopped chicken to make the soup with a shortcut.

  1. Lightly butter your slow cooker insert, place the vegetables in the bottom. Sprinkle with one packet of onion soup mix.
  2. Place the beef on the vegetables, sprinkle with the second packet of soup mix. Pour in the broth around the outside. Really just takes a cup of broth, gets the steam going.
  3. Cover and cook on Low setting for 8-10 hours. Check at 8 hours for tenderness. If fork tender, remove and serve, if not tender, continue cooking and checking each hour until tender, for local Thai beef, trust me, 9-10 hours and you will be happy with the results.
  4. If you would like to make an Au Jus dipping sauce, say for roast beef sandwiches, remove the beef and vegetables from the slow cooker and add a touch less than 1/4 cup Worcestershire and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder to the slow cooker juices, mix well and serve in small bowls for dipping.
Recipe Notes

The beef would cost about 300 Baht for 1 1/2 kilo. For 6 servings, this is about $1.47 per serving.
