The first beef.

This is the first beef recipe I'm posting because we don't eat much beef at home (other than corned beef). Choice cuts are quite expensive and the beef we always have are soup bones which are my favorite. Nothing can beat beef soup bones for Pochero (meat stew) but that alone deserves a whole other post. 

So yesterday, ma requested me to cook Beef Kaldereta (beef in tomato stew or sauce) for lunch. She bought beef chuck cuts, some potatoes and pineapple chunks. The chuck section which is located at the neck and shoulder is probably one of the most flavorful and cheap parts of the beef. It's not a tough cut and is ideally slow-cooked under low fire in simmering liquid.
