Kalderetang Kambing is goat meat stewed in tomato sauce. The adult goat meat, Chevon, is commonly used for this dish. The meat is sautéed with garlic, onions, and tomatoes then stewed in tomato sauce until it becomes tender.
Preparing goat meat requires some extra procedures compared to beef or pork. Since goat meat is gamey, a common practice to eliminate the odor and gamey flavor is to marinate it in vinegar, salt, and ground black pepper mixture for an hour or two before cooking.
Compared to the other Kaldereta dishes (sometimes spelled as Caldereta), Kalderetang Kambing is considered more special. It is commonly served in special occasions such as town fiestas and birthday parties (usually for grown-ups). It also goes well as an appetizer (pulutan) and is best when beer is around.
