Pork Kaldereta, Kalderetang Baboy

Pork Kaldereta, Kalderetang Baboy. On several parties that I have attended I often see pork kaldereta on the table. I personally never cooked pork kaldereta because I always thought kaldereta are best cooked with goat, beef ect.

Kalderetang Baboy

This is my first attempt to use pork for my caldereta. I have chosen the tail part, I thought the bones and tails of the hog would do best for my version of pork kaldereta. To give a little sweet-sour taste that we Pinoy have come to love, I added a can of pineapple juice.

The resultant dish was great and was really enjoyed by the family. Here is the recipe of my Pork Kaldereta, Kalderetang Baboy.

Ingredients:

1 kilo pork with bones and skin, cut into serving pieces
2 medium size red/green bell pepper, cut into wedges
2 medium size potato, cut into wedges
1 small can liver spread
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp. peppercorns, crushed
2 medium size onion, chopped
1/2 head garlic, chopped
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 tsp. hot sauce
2- 3 pcs. siling labuyo
3 bay leaf
cooking oil
salt

Cooking procedure:

Pork Caldereta, Kalderetang Baboy - Cooking Procedure

In a large saucepan put the pork, add enough water to cover meat, boil quickly for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from pan and discard liquid, rinse pork with running water to remove all scum, drain and keep aside. Using the same saucepan, sauté garlic and onion until fragrant, add the pork and sauté for another 2 to 3 minutes. Add in the tomato sauce, hot sauce and stir cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Add in the pineapple juice, 4 to 6 cups of water, crushed peppercorns and bay leaf, bring to a boil and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes or until pork are tender, add more water as necessary.

I believe there are some steps missing. When does the potato and cheddar cheese gets added?

Hi, you don't need to put liver spread if you don't like liver.

CAN I ADD TOFU? INSTEAD OF 1 KILO PORK, I WILL MAKE IT HALF A KILO PORK AND HALF A KILO TOFU FOR MY CALDERETA?
