Beef Caldereta

Beef Caldereta created by George Clement

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.

    Calderetta have different versions, indeed, depending what region of the Philippines you`re from. I have tasted these different versions. The best taste is with pineapple and cheese. So I tossed my old recipe away and used this one. I have tried without liver pate before--I regretted it. I`m just telling you--pineapple, cheese and liver pate you don`t want to miss.

    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.
