Bakareta Recipe

Bakareta or Beef Bakareta is one of the most popular and favorite dish specially during Fiestas or any special occasion in the Philippines. Some make this dish out of goat meat (Kalderera) but I myself rather stick to beef.

Bakareta Ingredients:

2 lbs beef with tendon or any kind of beef desired
1/2 lb pork liver or 1/2 cup liver spread (optional)
1 large potato, cut into cubes
1 large red pepper, cut into cubes
1 large carrot, cut into bite size
1 large onion, sliced thin
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cup tomato sauce
3 pieces bay leaf
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
1 small can sweet peas, drain
1/2 cup green olives (optional)
salt and ground pepper to taste
1/3 cup olive oil or any kind

Cooking Direction: 

Boil beef with enough water to cover the meat in a pressure cooker. Using pressure cooker saves you some time.

While waiting for the beef to soften, brown potatoes and carrots in cooking oil and set aside.

Using the same cooking oil saute garlic and onions till caramelized.

Add the slices of liver and saute till golden brown.

Now add the boiled beef to the mixture (save the remaining beef broth for later).

Pour in the soy sauce, bay leaf, ground black pepper, sugar and bell peppers.

Add the tomato sauce, remaining beef broth, potatoes, carrots, olives and snow peas.

Simmer for few more minutes.

Add more salt if needed.

Remove from heat and serve hot.
