Bakareta Beef Caldereta
Cooking this dish requires you a lot of patience. And the truth is, you gotta enjoy it. Otherwise, you will not be able to cook it right. Bakareta Beef Caldereta is very common at Filipino Family "handaan" or gatherings. This is one of our main dish that we have to have on the table.
The key is to make the beef tender but not dry. Many people failed to perfect it because the beef is a bit hard to chew. Personally, I buy beef that are really intended for stewing. Angus Beef is perfect. Some people will use london broil. I mean its up to you which fits your budget. But for me I love beef meat that has a little fatty skin too! and yet best for stewing.
So your main objective is to make sure you will buy best quality beef and have the patience to make the beef tender. This is usually paired with rice or bread. If you can perfect this you can have your own version of bakareta beef caldereta.
The Bakareta Beef Caldereta is my family's all time favorite. My kids love it. I can even cook this 3 times a week! and my kids still love it.
