Philippines-Nhonie-Flores-Beef Caldereta

Caldereta's name is derived from the Spanish word caldera meaning cauldron. The dish is similar to meat stews from the Iberian Peninsula and was brought to the Philippines by the Spaniards during their 300-year occupation in the Philippines. Commonly, the beef meat is stewed with vegetables and liver paste. Vegetables may include tomatoes, potatoes, olives, bell peppers, hot peppers, tomato sauce and sometimes coconut milk.
