i promised my family that i will cook dinner for them tonight, so i have decided to prepare something that they love – beef caldereta joyce’s style. why my style? it’s because i add chunky peanut butter while cooking. it gives a nice flavour that i like plus it’s more tasty than the conventional one.
for those who wants to learn how to cook the Filipino style beef caldereta, follow the easy steps below 🙂 bonne appetit!
Estimated cooking time: 1 1/2 to 2 hours
Beef Kaldereta Ingredients:
*1 kilo beef, cut into chunks
*1 big can (350g) liver spread or ground liver
*5 onions, minced
*5 cloves garlic, minced
*6 tomatoes, sliced
*1 cup tomato sauce
*3 green peppers, diced
*3 red peppers, diced
*4 pieces hot chilli peppers, minced
*3/4 cup grated cheese
*2 cups beef stock or water
*1/4 cup cooking or olive oil
Kaldereta Cooking Instructions:
*In a casserole, sauté: garlic and onions in oil. Then add tomatoes, red & green pepper and chilli peppers.
*Add in the beef, tomato sauce, liver spread and water or stock. Salt to taste and let simmer for at least 1 hour or until the beef is tender.
*Add cheese and olives (optional) and continue to simmer until the sauce thickens.
*Serve with plain rice
*Instead of beef, goat’s meat (kambing) can be used. If goat’s meat is used, marinate the meat in vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper for at least 15 minutes.
*For a special kaldereta, do not use water or beef stock. Use an equivalent weight of onions to the beef (1 kg of onions : 1 kg of beef). The onions will serve as water to the dish.
