Pork Kaldereta for Kulinarya Cooking Club

For this month’s Kulinarya challenge our host’s Oggie of I can do that, Chef Teodore of Chef by Day, Boyet of Real and Grill and Ray of Wok with Ray asked the group to prepare something patriotic – use the colors of our Philippine Flag.

Blue! I for the love of Pinoy food can’t think of anything blue.

I’ve been meaning to cook Kaldereta using pork, you can also use Chicken, Beef or Lamb. So while cutting the veggies I realized that I had all the colors required for the challenge except for blue. Little V approached me and ask if he can help me cook, I told him to help mama look for something blue that we can eat…he gave me his blue fork.

I told V that we can’t eat fork he just replied – “Mama, fork help us eat”


Yellow- Potato; Red/Green- Bell Pepper; White- Rice; Blue- Fork


  • Pork Spareribs
  • Potato, cut in wedges
  • Carrots, cut in wedges
  • Red Bell Pepper, cut in wedges
  • Green Bell Pepper, cut in wedges
  • Onion, finely chopped
  • Tomato, quartered
  • Garlic, minced
  • 1 package Del Monte Tomato Sauce
  • 1 small can Reno Chicken Liver
  • 1 Tablespoon of Peanut Butter
  • Salt and Pepper


Cut pork to bite size.

Pre-fry Potato, Carrots and Bell Peppers till the edges are a bit burnt.

Heat oil in saucepan and brown Pork Spareribs in batches, set aside. Saute Garlic, Onion, Tomatoes and add spareribs. Season with Salt and Pepper. Add Tomato Sauce, pour in 2 to 3 cups of water just enough to cover meat, stir well and bring to boil. Lower the heat and simmer till pork meat is fork tender.

Serve with rice.

Kulinarya was started by a group of Filipino foodies living in Sydney, who are passionate about the Filipino culture and its colourful cuisine. Each month we will showcase a new dish along with their family recipes. By sharing these recipes, we hope you find the same passion and love for Filipino Food as we do.

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).

    What a smart kid you have there! And my, your version of Pork Kaldereta looks stunning! I must say that I like cooking kaldereta using pork…it’s a lot cheaper and cooks faster than beef!

    • Pork meat here is darn hard parang beef na din and not as tasty as we get back home. Using lamb or mutton here is much cheaper.

  6. There are days when I like using pork than beef when cooking kaldareta.  Way to go little V.. smart move to get all the colors of the flag together hahah.. btw,  I think you forgot one of the sponsors for this month’s KCC theme.  Baka magalit sa yo hahah.. It’s Ray of Cooking with Ray.  I think he played a big role in coming up with the theme so his name deserves to be up there… just a friendly reminder!

    • Salamat for pointing out my mistake. Hanap ako ng hanap ng cooking with Ray hehehe. I have to search my inbox to confirm.

  7. That color blue is pretty darn hard, right?! Thank goodness for blue plates and blue forks! They help us eat! 🙂 Love it!

  8. I just had corned beef caldereta yesterday and would love to try it with pork. The blue fork is cute.:)

  9. Diona Libunao-Joyce says
