Kaldereta Recipe


Estimated cooking time: 1 1/2 to 2 hours


Beef Kaldereta Ingredients:

  • 1 kilo beef, cut into chunks

  • 1 big can (350g) liver spread or ground liver

  • 5 onions, minced

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

  • 6 tomatoes, sliced

  • 1 cup tomato sauce

  • 3 green peppers, diced

  • 3 red peppers, diced

  • 4 pieces hot chilli peppers, minced

  • 3/4 cup grated cheese

  • 2 cups beef stock or water

  • 1/4 cup cooking or olive oil

Kaldereta Cooking Instructions:

  • In a casserole, sauté: garlic and onions in oil. Then add tomatoes, red & green pepper and chilli peppers.

  • Add in the beef, tomato sauce, liver spread and water or stock. Salt to taste and let simmer for at least 1 hour or until the beef is tender.

  • Add cheese and olives (optional) and continue to simmer until the sauce thickens.

  • Serve with plain rice.

Cooking Tips:

  • Instead of beef, goat's meat (kambing) can be used. If goat's meat is used, marinate the meat in vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper for at least 15 minutes.

  • For a special kaldereta, do not use water or beef stock. Use an equivalent weight of onions to the beef (1 kg of onions : 1 kg of beef). The onions will serve as water to the dish.
