Add off course Gata and some fresh Chilli Pepper for more Flavory Taste...and some Green Peas too.
Again my Husband and my Toddler loves my Cooking...He even brought some to his work and my Baby Girl is getting used to my Bicolanidia Cooking....with Gata and Hot Chili Pepper....lol...
I added green peas to the recipe too..and i didn't just marinate it for an hour but overnight - with orange juice, soy sauce and the pepper..its sweeter that way, i think..my husband and his parents loved it!
Beef Caldereta is really something we can be proud of being a traditional Filipino cuisine popularly prepared on holidays and town fiestas. I'd like to share what we do at home: Bring to a boil beef chunks (preferably pochero or shoulder blade) with pineapple juice, a little vinegar, soysauce,salt, black pepper and 1 head garlic(adobo style)until tender. Then, in another pan, fry your potatoes and olives in 3 tsp olive oil and saute 2 cloves of garlic and 3 pcs. chopped red onions. Add the tomato sauce, beef chunks and the rest of the ingredients. The red and green bell peppers are added 2 minutes before turning off the fire. The finished product should turn out to be very colorful and yummy
I am not sure I will find liver spread where I live...what should I look for, or what can I substitute?
western people loves caldereta,too.I also
substitute chicken for a change.
Thank you guys for showing and being proud of our Filipino cultured cooking.Mabuhay!!!
