WATCH: This Beef Kaldereta Recipe Has More Than One Secret Ingredient
It's actually got three.
One of the most common and popular homemade stews has to be the kaldereta recipe. This super hearty beef stew is loaded with chunky cuts of beef, potatoes, and carrots in a rich and savory tomato sauce. The taste of the beef is usually accompanied by the bitter-tanginess of the bell peppers.
However, there are ways to make it different and someone certainly knew how to make their kaldereta recipe incredibly flavorful, too. Fortunately, they also knew how to make it taste similar despite adding unique ingredients to truly make it their own.
This beef kaldereta recipe version is definitely different in more ways than one.
How? This recipe doesn't use just any cut of beef. Beef short ribs are some of the most flavorful cuts of meat. It's also a tough cut of meat so not only does it need more time than usual to become tender, but it's also packed with more flavor than your average beef cut.
This version is also made more flavorful by the addition of not just one ingredient but three ingredients that are unique even for other kaldereta recipes. You don't usually find sweet coconut milk, earthy peanut butter, and salty green olives all in one recipe. This kaldereta dish amazingly manages to combine all three into one dish and make it work in the most delicious way.
