    George Clement's Note:

    This is a tasty dish from the Philippines. I live in the Philippines and this dish was prepared by my Filipino wife, it is the common recipe for Caldereta in the Philippines. It is a rich, very filling meaty dish and when served on a bed of cooked rice can be a one dish family meal.

      Yes, there is a dish from the Philippines called caldereta, but this is NOT it. Pineapple juice? Cheese? I added the pineapple juice but did not add the cheese. The pineapple juice just didn't work well. Will not be making this again, will stick to the caldereta recipe that true Filipinos cook.

      Made as recipe stated and was good. It was a bit different because I grew up eating a slightly different version of it with potatoes, cheese and peanut butter.<br/><br/>For the person complaining about the cheese and pineapple juice -- different regions of the Philippines use different ingredients. My mother, A TRUE FILIPINA, always added peanut butter and cheese to ours. Not all recipes are the same for one country. Note, the author's wife is FILIPINA and this is her recipe.
