Kanderetang Giniling na Baka, Ground Beef Kaldereta

Kanderetang Giniling na Baka, Ground Beef Kaldereta. Ground meat either beef or pork, or in combination cooked with tomato sauce with potato extenders is one of the popular Pinoy eatery food simply named giniling, literaly means ground (meat). There are countless versions from the nuclear red ketchup laden carinderia giniling to the basic ginisa with garlic, onion and tomato version.

Today I like to share a more extravagant version of the lowly giniling, Kalderetang Giniling na Baka complete with most of the ingredients of a regular meat kaldereta. This kaldereta is cooked from the scratch meaning without the use of any kaldereta mixes.

Cooking my version of Kanderetang Giniling na Baka, Ground Beef Kaldereta may be a bit complicated because I used a lot of ingredient, but as long as everything is on hand before starting to cook you won’t go wrong, remember cooking recipes are just a guide on your measurements and cooking steps. Quantities, times and steps may be adjusted accordingly there are no hard rules.
