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.
