Beef Kaldereta (Beef Stew-Filipino style)

Prep Time: 75-120 minutes

Serves 4-5


2 lbs beef shank or beef short ribs

2 tbsp Fish sauce

2 tbsp Soy sauce

1 tsp grnd pepper

1/4 cup garlic (minced)

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup onions (minced)

2 tsp white sugar

3 tablespoons tomato paste

1 tbsp chili oil, or chili powder or minced hot chili pepper (if spicy preferred)

4 cups water or beef stock

1 red bell pepper (quartered)

1 green bell pepper (quartered)

1/2 cup green olives

1/2 cup grated cheese

2 tbsp peanut butter

1 tsp pickle relish


Heat Olive oil. Saute garlic, onion, tomatoes, and add in meat. Cook until brown, add fish sauce and tomato paste, then stir well. Add in chili and stock. Add peanut butter, cheese, and relish. Simmer until meat is tender and until sauce thickens. Lastly, add bell peppers and olives.


- The longer you simmer in low fire, the better because it allows all the sauce and ingredients to be all mixed in that makes it thick and adds that great-looking red-orangy color.

- Beef short ribs can also be used in substitute for beef shank
