Thai Coconut Pancakes ขนมครก - Episode 155

Thai Coconut Pancakes

This is one of my favorite breakfast smacks, although it can be dessert as well. Thai Coconut Pancakes are very small compared to what you might be used to. They are typically just a few inches in diameter and have a rounded bottom. You can top these little pancakes with your favorite fruit or veggie. I chose three of the most common toppings of my childhood, taro, corn, and green onions. I know what you're thinking, it's the same thinkg that I thought the very first time I ate this, "green onion on a pancake?" Well, yes, it goes together perfectly. You're going to have to trust me on this one.

Thai Spicy Egg Salad ยำไข่ต้มหมูสับ - Episode 154

Thai Spicy Egg Salad ยำไข่ต้มหมูสับ - Episode 154

You didn't think I was going to let all those eggs from my last recipe to go waste did you? Of course, I wouldn't do that. Thai Spicy Egg Salad is nothing like the egg salad that you might be familiar with. No mayonnaise or relish here. This Thai Spicy Egg Salad Recipe is something totally different, but totally awesome too. With runny yolks and fully cooked whites, these eggs are super creamy. I topped these eggs off with sour, sweet, and spicy minced pork. This recipe is fairly easy and quick to make. If you're an egg lover, then you will love this recipe. This egg dish is one of my Top-3 egg recipes.

How to Boil the Perfect Egg - Episode 153

Boiling Eggs seems like a pretty easy and straight forward thing to do. That is until someone asks you for something other than a hard boiled egg. For a long time, I never thought much about boiling eggs. For me, and probably for a lot of people, a boiled egg was nothing more than the classic hard boiled egg. It wasn't until I really started paying attention to recipes, and different cooking techniques that I realized that the classic hard boiled egg wasn't the only boiled egg game in town. Each of these eggs are different and add different properties to the broader art of cooking other recipes.

Thai Hot Pot สุกี้ อร่อยง่ายได้ที่บ้าน - Episode 151

Thai Hot Pot สุกี้ อร่อยง่ายได้ที่บ้าน - Episode 151

Thai Hot Pot (or Suki) is a Thai version of a classic Asian Hot Pot. It is basically just a hodg-podg of various vegetables and meats that are boiled in a basic broth. While it sounds simple, the flavors that develop in the broth can become pretty complex and delicious as the meal draws out. As the vegetables and meats cook in the broth over time, the broth becomes a very unique soup for everyone to enjoy. The great thing about hot pot is that you don't really need to follow any set rules. You can use your favorite ingredients to ensure that you really get a meal that you will love. No two hot pots need ever be the same when you think about it this way. You can even do vegetarian version if want.
