Special Pork Kaldereta

Special Pork Kaldereta

Special Pork Kaldereta is my second post of the pork version of kaldereta. For this version I planned to use pork ribs similar to the cut sold locally in Manila but it was not available here, instead I used the combination of pork back ribs and pork rasher. Being special kaldereta version I also have added a couple or so ingredients. I added a small can of pineapple slices cut to pieces, added the syrup to the stewing broth. Added some slices of sweet pickled dill or cucumber in addition to the sweet pickled relish. Some pitted green olives and some peanut butter was also used.

Pork Kaldereta

This kaldereta version is made from scratch, instead of using liver spread I used pork liver. To prepare the liver I first boiled until the liver become firm. Then cut into thin strips before finely diced and finally mashed smooth. You may use pestle and mortar if required to attain a smooth liver paste. The liver paste was then sautéed with the garlic and onion.

Aside from the above, cooking is basically the same to my previous kaldereta post below
