I have been keeping this photo for quite sometimes but haven't written anything about it in my blog, hoping that I will have a nice relaxing time for me to unwind with my writing while listening to an 80's number, it's 'I NEVER LET YOU GO'. Nice, just what I need ...At last, after so long... I finally have the time this weekend. Yea... why not? since I don't really have to cook because it's been done by mom... even Donut and Jojo are busy with their studies and computer games... I am really enjoying my weekend back in hometown with everybody around, mom and abah, all brothers and sisters, kidos... FOOD... ALOT... FOOD
The photo was taken about 2 months ago but I still can remember how good and tasty it was... Ya, it's Caldareta... Tender beef with capsicum, carrot and potato. A more tomato version of Daging Masak Kicap (Beef in Dark Soya Sauce). Some may add in shredded cheese and liver spread, but for this attempt it just a simple Caldareta ...
Don't forget Calamansi ya... it's essential ingredient in Philippines dish, or you may substitute it with lemon too. Instead of using tomato sauce it's preferable to use tomato puree for it's richer taste. And vegetable should be fried for a while just to preserve the sweetness in the vegetable, instead of cooking with water and lost the crispiness and taste. Slice some onions into rings and saute, make sure that the beef is tender after bring to boil in the sauce.. Remove beef from sauce and saute on frying pan till slightly dry, add in the remaining sauce and vegetable... Enjoy with rice or plain loaf and it is more to enjoy...
MMMMmmm... I just enjoy eating and I enjoy watching people eating... HAPPY WEEKEND FOOD LOVERS...

p/s Saute chopped garlic and onion before add in beef, soya sauce, tomato puree and calamansi.
