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.
