Oct 14: Hot and Sour Beef Salad


Trying our a Sourdough Bread from Aldi, we made some Tuna Melts.

  • The Sourdough was $2.85 or 19c per slice
  • The Tuna Pouch is 99c per serve
  • Swiss is 41c per serve
  • Add 45c for Garlic Spread and Capers.

The texture of the Bread was disappointing with none of the “chew” that defines a Sourdough, but the flavor was okay, and contributed to a decent open sandwich for $2.04 per serve.


Our favorite Beef Salad is definitely the Cambodian Hot and Sour Beef Salad, although we don’t make it all that hot, but we do like our sour!

  • The NY Strip was $15.88 for two steaks, or $3.97 per serve
  • Limes were 49c for two but we shared one, or 13c per serve
  • Mint was from our garden
  • Lettuce adds 40c per serve
  • Spring Onions we grow
  • The Bell Pepper was 64c or 32c per serve
  • Instead of a Chili we used some Sweet Chili Sauce, which adds 20c per serve
  • Add 30c for Fish Sauce and other ingredients.

A very tasty meal for $5.64 per serve.
