Hello Everyone!

It’s been a minute! =D If you may ask, what is Caldereta? Well, Caldereta is one of my absolute favorite Filipino dish. It’s a coconut, tomato & soy sauce base meat stew. The spiciness and the sweetness of the coconut makes it one of my favorite Filipino dish. It reminds me of a lot of family dinners. It also reminds me of the “Carinderia ” eatery style in Manila. On a budget, I would always order this with a lots of rice off course.

Today, I decided to give it a little twist. The caldereta sauce is just a universal carb partner lol.

I really hope you would try this, it’s so bomb. Ask me questions if you are confuse with the recipe. Love you all.
