beef caldereta recipe pinoy

Cooking dishes that take time for me to cook is one of the things I do during weekends. Sometimes, I cook with my husband as our way of bonding with each other. Just last weekend, since my sister is here in Cebu for a vacation, we had a great time in the kitchen cooking Beef Caldereta with Virginia Liver Spread. Yes, you read it right, liver spread is not only used as a spread. The liver spread’s unique flavor can also be used as an ingredient that could turn typical Filipino dishes into something more. Trust me, it made our beef caldereta more flavourful. See the recipe below:

There are different versions of Caldereta but I like this version more. Cooking it with tomato sauce alone sometimes leaves a bitter aftertaste. But with Virginia Liver Spread, there’s no weird aftertaste, just flavorful Caldereta. Siguradong mas pasasarapin ang Lutuin with Virginia Liver Spread, try it now!
