Lusog Notes

This Classic Caldereta dish is rich in vitamin A that helps maintain healthy skin and normal vision and also plays a role in immunity. It is also high in protein, which helps in the regulation and maintenance of the body's fluid balance.

Chef's Tip

The vinegar in the marinade helps break down the proteins in the meat which helps to tenderize it.
