4. When cooked, drain and set aside.

5. Saute’ the rest of the garlic in the same pan.

6. Fry the flavored pork.

(Tip: You can opt not to marinate the pork since we are still to season it later as we stew.)

7. When the pork is cooked on both sides, add in the chicken liver.

8. Crush the chicken liver against the pork. Mix well.

9. Add hot water.

10. Add the fried potatoes, carrots, olives and bell pepper.

(Quick tip: Add water when necessary to prevent the sauce from drying out.)

    The terms “bell pepper”, “pepper” or in Australia and New Zealand “capsicum”, are often used for any of the large bell shaped fruits, regardless of their color. In British English, the fruit is simply referred to as a “pepper”, or additionally by color (as in the term “green pepper”, for example), whereas in many Commonwealth of Nations countries, such as India, Canada, and Malaysia, they are called “bell peppers”.,

    I usually put in a bottle of San Miguel Pale Pilsen, and cook the whole thing in low heat for about an hour… The beer is used to mask the odor if you are using chevon, as in “Kalderetang Kambing” but it also gives it a unique taste even with pork.
