Beef Kaldereta Recipe

Kaldereta, with its name, I am definite that no one of pinoy readers would not know this recipe.  This is also mostly part of dishes served during special occasions by many Filipinos. Basic ingredients of this dish include carrots, potatoes, tomato sauce, green peas, green olives, and liver spread.

Also, you can select what kind of meat you want to use on this recipe. This dish is perfect for beef, pork, or goat meat.  But in our recipe for today, we will be using beef.  You may need to utilize a pressure cooker to reduce the preparation time as beef meat softens longer time.

For carrots and potatoes, mostly these are put directly to the pan and cooked together with other ingredients, in our procedure, we need to fry them separately to have a good presentation.

Okay, let’s start

Beef Kaldereta Recipe Ingredients:
2 lbs beef, cubed
1 can liver spread (small)
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 cup red bell pepper, cut into strips
4 cups water
1 cup tomato sauce
1 tsp. crushed chili
3 large bay leaves
2 medium sized potatoes, sliced
2 medium sized carrots, sliced
1 cup cooking oil (I prefer Sunflower or Canola)
2/3 cup green olives / or green peas
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cooking Beef Kaldereta Procedure
1) In a pan, heat the cooking oil and fry the carrots and potatoes until color turns light brown. Set aside.
2) In the same pan where the vegetables were fried, sauté the garlic and onions
3) Add the beef and simmer for 5 minutes
