Preparing The Goat Meat
Before cooking the goat meat into caldereta, it needs to be boiled in hot water. To prepare for this recipe, you will need two kilograms goat meat, one stalk of lemon grass, five to six bay leaves and two teaspoons of sliced ginger.
Cut the goat meat into even-sized chunks. Put the lemon grass, bay leaves, ginger and goat meat in a large pot. Add just enough water to cover the goat meat. Bring the pot to a boil and then lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
While the goat meat is simmering, prepare the other ingredients for cooking the caldereta.
