My Kalderetang Kambing

Goat is a popular dish in some countries like Philippines and Mexico. Goat meat is different from lamb and beef because goat has less fat and is thus  good for your diet. The perfect way to cook goat is to  boil it with sauce or grill it on low temperature until it is tender.

On 05/13/2012, me, my mom, dad and brother went to the Sunday Market at SM Centris. We bought seafood, vegetables and raw goat.

At 2:30 P.M., I  cooked Kalderetang Kambing with my grandmother downstairs.

I crushed 1 whole garlic and chopped 2 onions and sliced 3 potatoes. Grandmother sliced 2 carrots and boiled the goat.

Kalderetang Kambing recipe


1 whole garlic crushed
2 onions chopped
3 sliced potatoes
2 sliced carrots
2 kilos of goat , sliced
400g. tomato sauce
1 sliced bell pepper
1/4 cup cooking oil


  1. Stir fry garlic in hot oil.
  2. Add onions and cook until onions are a little brown.
  3.  Wash then drain the goat slices. Add the goat to the sautéed onions and garlic then keep mixing so the goat skin won’t stick to  the wok.
  4. Add tomato sauce, carrots and potatoes.
  5. Boil until meat and potatoes are tender. Add chili (optional), bell pepper, salt and pepper.
  6. Serve hot with steamed rice.

That’s it for today everyone. Adiòs!

Outback 2!

Welcome back to my blog readers!

On April 07, 2012, my sister and I wrote a blog about the amazing meals we had at Outback in Glorietta 4.  Outback’s Marketing Manger,  Tita Vanessa Calimlim , read our blog and she was pleased.

I was so happy to receive a marketing certificate from Outback and this read:

This entitles bearer, Enrico Feria to avail choice of one (1) weekday lunch entree at any Outback Steakhouse in the Philippines given 16th of May 2012, as token for Facebook and blog review.

  • Present this Marketing Certificate upon ordering. One certificate per visit.
  • Not to be combined with others promotion and discounts
  • This certificate is valid until July 31, 2012.

We visited Tita Vanessa at Outback , Glorietta on May 18, 2012, the same time that my family and I went on vacation at   Ascott hotel , where we were staying for 3 days and 2 nights.  She came to meet us, with a big smile,  and shook our hands, offered drinks ,  and chatted a bit.  My mom said she was very pleased about her warm welcome.

The next day, we went back to Outback  for lunch. My dad positioned himself in front of the tv   to watch the NBA basketball game. We ordered Outback nachos for our appetizer. It had tortilla chips, melted cheese, ground beef, tomatoes, olives , jalapeno and sour cream.  Some of the nachos were black…it was my first time to see that.

While  I was watching NBA,  my 3 younger siblings were given activity papers.  My youngest sibling, Happy , was having a great time because she likes to color.



I love steak so I could not  decide which one to order from the lunch menu that had all sorts of steaks.  Finally,  I ordered Bloomin steak sandwich.

My sister ordered Smothered steak.

My mom, dad and my younger sister ordered a whole slab of baby back ribs.

My  brother  ordered his favorite, Toowoomba pasta.

The steak sandwich I ordered looks appetizing because the sandwich was large. It has steak and onion rings inside and fries for the side dish. The steak was tender and cooked perfectly. Overall, the dish was impressive .

When I tried this interesting dish, I found out that steak and bread are awesome together.

My sister’s Smothered steak has a 6 oz. , imported,  grain-fed beef , covered with peppercorn sauce, sauteed bacon, onions and mushrooms, topped with Swiss cheese. It also has  mashed potatoes and fresh seasonal veggies. She says it’s delicious, too.

I hope you can try Outback Steakhouse too. You won’t be sorry!

They have branches at Glorietta 4 Makati, Alabang Town center and ACROPOLIS LIBIS.

That’s all for today everyone! Adiós.
