How to cook Beef Caldereta with Chorizo:

  • Put beef in a large pot and pour water just enough to cover the meat.
  • Bring to a boil then lower the heat to simmer. Remove the scum floating above the broth then cover. Let it simmer for about 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile broil the pork liver until medium rare. Grind or chop finely. Combine liver with cheese, tomato sauce, vinegar, sugar, salt, bell peppers and olives. Stir until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil and saute garlic until fragrant. Add in the onions and saute until soft. Then add in the chorizo and mix.
  • Stir in liver mixture and simmer for about 15 minutes or until mixture turns lighter in color.
  • Pour liver mixture into the beef in the pot and simmer for another 15 minutes.
  • Simmer until the sauce thickens and beef is already tender. Add some water if the sauce becomes too dry while simmering the beef.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot with steamed rice. Enjoy!
