Kalderetang Turkey Wings

Kalderetang Turkey Wings
Kalderetang Turkey Wings is another innovative dish that I have been planning to cook for sometime. I always though that turkey meat is also excellent as kaldereta especially the wings. The turkey wing has all the characteristic or a good kaldereta meat, the firm texture of the turkey meat and skin are ideal for kaldereta. I though that I could cook the turkey wings with bone in but I could not cut the bones, they are definitely hard. In the end I have to debone the huge turkey wings. I also have difficulty cutting the turkey meats, I needed a larger knife to effectively cut it into pieces. Cooking time is definitely longer than the usual chicken meat. After simmering for almost an hour the meats are still chewy, should you wish your kadereta meat to be really tender you have to simmer it a bit longer. Here is the recipe of my Kalderetang Turkey Wings try it.


1 kilo turkey wings,deboned, cut to serving pieces
2 pcs. chorizo, sliced
1 small can liver spread
1/2 cup grated cheese
1 medium size potato, quartered
1 large size carrot, cut into wedges
2 medium size bell pepper, cut into wedges
1/2 cup green olives
1/2 head garlic, chopped
2 medium size onion, chopped
2 tbsp. tomato paste (or 1 cup tomato sauce)
2-3 chili, sliced
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup fish sauce
1 tsp. peppercorns, crushed
1 tbsp. chili flakes (optional)
2-3 pieces bay leaf
1 tsp. sugar
salt and pepper
cooking oil

Cooking procedure:

  1. I would probably make this but with turkey legs, I also make a tomato based stew using turkey meat (I use the legs and tell the butcher to cut it into large rounds like if it was "oxtail" here's the link if interested:


    I'll have to try the Kaldereta sometime, sounds real tasty :)
