Beef Kaldereta  

Posted by Life Moto in

Kaldereta is a dish popular in the Philippines, especially in Luzon island. Its common ingredients are cuts of pork, beef or goat with tomato paste or tomato sauce with liver spread added to it. In Metro Manila it is more commonly added with potatoes but in other regions such as Southern Tagalog provinces, it is simply the sauce and the cuts of meat that are used. There are other meats that can also be used such as chicken but pork, beef and goat are the three more popular cuts of meat used.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ingredients of Kaldereta:

  1. 1 kilo beef, cut into chunks

  2. 1 big can (350g) liver spread or ground liver

  3. 5 onions, minced

  4. 5 cloves garlic, minced

  5. 6 tomatoes, sliced

  6. 1 cup tomato sauce

  7. 3 green peppers, diced

  8. 3 red peppers, diced

  9. 4 pieces hot chilli peppers, minced

  10. 3/4 cup grated cheese

  11. 2 cups beef stock or water

  12. 1/4 cup cooking or olive oil

Instructions for Kaldereta:

  1. In a casserole, sauté: garlic and onions in oil. Then add tomatoes, red & green pepper and chilli peppers.

  2. 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.

  3. Add cheese and olives (optional) and continue to simmer until the sauce thickens.

  4. 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.
