Buttery Kaldereta

Kaldereta is one of my favorite Filipino recipes. A hearty and homey stew brewing for hours until all the flavors of tomato, beef (or any meat you prefer), and vegetables blend together into one delicious dish is perfect for gathering family and friends together at the dinner table. 

In my version of kaldereta, I add some capers, spice, gremolata (herb chopped with lemon zest, typically used in ossobuco), and finish it with some Anchor Butter right at the end to make everything creamier and more flavorful. This recipe of kaldereta may have some Italian and French influences, but it remains Filipino at heart and in flavor. Enjoy!
