  • 1 Begin by tenderizing the beef in water. Pour the water enough to cover the meat with the quartered onions. Simmer, covered, until beef is tender. Remove the scum that has formed on the surface. Once beef is tender, strain out from the broth and set aside beef and the broth.
  • 2 Get a pan and make it nice and hot over medium heat. Pour some oil and throw in the onions and garlic and saute until light brown in color.
  • 3 Add in the tenderized beef and saute for 1 minute.
  • 4 Stir in the liver spread, tomato paste and bay leaves. Mix well.
  • 5 Add 1-1/2 cups of the broth and Knorr Beef Cube. Simmer for 5 minutes before adding the potatoes and carrots. Continue to simmer until vegetables are tender and sauce has slightly thickened.
  • 6 Lastly, add bell peppers. You may also add the olives and cheese at this point, if desired. And that's it! Classic Beef Kaldereta is best enjoyed with the company of loved ones because something as good as this is best shared with family.
