Pork Ribs Caldereta

Pork Ribs Caldereta

Yesterday, I’ve read that there have been many people calling the hotline needing help with depression because of this pandemic. Everybody’s confined at home at there’s this uncertainty hanging in the air. There’s only so much we could do to ease the tension in our homes.

In our home, I bond with my kids more than usual. And of course, as much as possible, I serve them meals that are not only nutritious but meals that excite them like this Pork Ribs Caldereta. I always cook Beef Caldereta, so cooking this using another kind of meat other than beef, somehow makes this different than their usual.

What’s nice about this is that this is more budget-friendly dahil mas mura ang pork ribs sa beef, diba?


Pork Ribs Caldereta

What I discovered about my preference for Caldereta is that I like mine with coconut milk (gata) because it makes it richer, creamier, and more delicious. I can actually do without the cheese as long as there’s coconut milk in it. This Pork Ribs Caldereta version doesn’t have it though because I’m trying to appreciate it without.

Next time, I’ll try cooking Chicken Caldereta naman….
