Note from Delish:

In a traditional kaldereta recipe, we need to use goat meat. But since it’s not something that we can easily get from the gorcery stores, beef is one great alternative.

Preparing and cooking beef kaldereta is not that hard as you think it is. The secret is about having the complete ingredients. Also, since you will be cooking beef cubes, in this case I choose to use the mechado cut, you will need to spend some time to get the meat to become tender. You can either buy a ready beef broth in a box or simply buy beef broth cubes and dissolve it in a hot water. I also added cheddar cheese cubes to make the sauce creamier.
