Classic Beef Caldereta with U.S. Russets

Leveling up our all-time family fave with U.S. potato goodness

Classic Beef Caldereta with U.S. Russets

The humble potato is a staple food in many parts of the world and an integral part of much of the world's food supply.

This includes our household. Oh how we love potatoes! Almost all of our meals at home have potatoes in them. Our family is a sucker for fries, too!

It’s an awesome extender for our “ulam” and goes well with just about anything. I love serving them at home because potatoes are highly nutritious, too. A serving of about 5.3 oz has 620mg of Potassium. That’s a higher Potassium content than a medium-sized banana. It’s perfect for our Dada’s diet.

Potatoes are also rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Protein, Fiber, and Iron. They are also free of sodium, cholesterol, gluten and fat. These are all beneficial for a healthier heart.

I must admit, I used to think potatoes only come in one form, which is fresh, the usual ones we find in stores. Until I came across the many products marketed by Potatoes USA. It’s the first time I heard of frozen and dehydrated potatoes. Though different in form, they deliver the same nutrients as fresh potatoes.

I am still familiarizing myself with U.S. frozen and U.S. dehy. So I decided to use fresh potatoes for the recipe I am sharing with you in this post. It’s the Classic Beef Caldereta. It is such a blockbuster recipe that my entire family enjoys!

Classic Beef Caldereta with U.S. Russets

Below is the easy-peasy recipe that is good for a family of five. But a word of caution…. It is so good that you may want to double the ingredients. 😊

4 cloves garlic, pounded
1 medium white onion, coarsely chopped
1 large tomato, minced

  1. I personally love potatoes! From chips to salad, from side dish to main dish. We always have stocks of fresh potatoes. It's great to know they are loaded with health benefits and not just a main source of carbs.😊 Yummy caldereta! Thanks for sharing. πŸ‘

  2. I just knew that potatoes are more than high potassium than a banana! I love potatoes but I will even more love it because of what I knew! Pero dapat moderate lang din kasi may risk pa din pag sumobra..
