Beef Kaldereta Recipe


Beef  Kaldereta Recipe


Kaldereta is a popular dish in the Philippines, especially on Luzon Island.
Kaldereta is a favorite Filipino meal served during parties, festivities and other special occasions in the Philippines. It is a Spanish-influenced dish (the Spanish word "caldera" means cauldron) that became to be Filipinos' favorite and made their own versions. Originally, the main ingredients of this dish includes goat meat, tomato sauce, liver, pepper and cheese. Variations of this dish is with beef, chicken and or pork. Beef Kaldereta is a common dish in the Philippines made with stewing cuts of beef simmered until tender. ( source: wikipedia )

Hello! Guys, Anyone hungry for some beef kaldereta? Yep! that's what we gonna have this week, I'm thinking this would be perfect comfort food for this cold rainy days, Sauteed Green Beans for side dish and leave some room for Iced Pumpkin cookies, chocolate crinkles or even macaroni salad for dessert. A perfect family dinner indeed that everyone will enjoy. The aroma from beef caldereta is all over the house right now, wonder why I feel like I'm drooling while writing this post (hahahha). Kaldereta is best when the meat so tender, So, expecting that the cooking process is like 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the cut of the meat, Perhaps you could used slow cooker on this process or pressure cooker. I simmerred mine for long period of time, enough for me to finish blogging about it ( wink). This recipe is totally my version of Kaldereta, I don't have any peas on hand at the time, So, I added the Bokchoy instead but feel free to make your own twist of classic Kaldereta. The good thing about cooking, is when your having FUN.
Anyways, If you do have some awesome recipe for Kaldereta, or ingredients that I miss or anything at all. Feel free to leave a comment on my blog. I'll be more than happy to know. Check out my recipe below and see you in few days for more recipe. Have a sweet and fun week everyone.

Notes:
-This recipe serve for 4 people, adjust the ingredients depending on the number of guest you have.
-Taste according to your preference.
-Use your favorite sauce and ingredients.

Ingredients:
1 lbs. Beef sirloin- ( Used whatever you have in hand)
1 medium onion- chopped
2 clove garlic- thinly sliced
2 medium size potato
2 carrots
1 bokchoy- (opitonal)
Salt n Pepper- to taste
2 teaspoon oil
3 teaspoon soy sauce
3/4 cup tomato sauce
2-3 cups water or beef stock



Directions:
1.) Marinate the cut beef with little soy sauce. Set aside.
2.) Put oil in large pot, Add the garlic and onion. Saute until translucent.
3.) Add the marinated beef. Let it simmer for like 5-8 minutes or until brown.
4.) Add enough water or stock to level up the meat. Let it cook slow until the meat become tender. I would say 45 minutes to an hour depending on the cut of meat.
NOTE: Keep checking on it every 15 minutes. Make sure that there's enough water or beef stock on the pot to avoid burned caldereta.
5.) When the water or beef stock reduced and the meat is tender. Time to add the tomato sauce and the chopped vegetables. Salt and Pepper to taste. Let it simmer until the vegetables are cooked through.
6.) Best served when HOT! along with rice and sauteed green beans. ENJOY!

  15. Our version of Kaldereta has no cheese din. But sometimes I interchange Kaldereta and Menudo. What's the difference? Kasi sa amin, both cooked in tomato sauce naman.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Menudo often cooked with liver spread while Kaldereta have cheese on them, and yes both are cooked with tomato sauce. Hope it helps:) But I like my kaldereta without cheese on them though. Thanks!
