Toko 4 All - Recipe: Caldereta

A specialty of Pampanga province, this rich beef stew has potatoes, green peas, carrot, and bell pepper simmered in a flavorful tomato sauce. The sauce-thickening agent is a liver paste that adds a distinctive flavor to the dish. This stew is traditionally made with goat meat and served during fiesta time when a whole goat is slaughtered to feed a large number of people. It is equally delicious prepared with lamb, pork, or chicken. Whichever meat you choose, this makes a great one-pot meal.
