    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.
