Another favorite Filipino dish is the Kaldereta. It is a hearty meat dish using chevon (goat meat), beef, or pork combined with potatoes, carrots, tomato sauce, and liver spread or liver paste. This is a popular dish served during special occasions and a regular in every Filipino cookbook. Preparing something like this takes some time and patience but it is all worth the wait. Using a pressure cooker is recommended to save some time in making the meat tender.
