Kalderobo: A unique dish prepared with pork marinated in soy sauce and vinegar then cooked in a sauce made with coconut milk, liver spread and peanut butter.


Units Scale


  • 1 kg pork belly, cubed
  • 2 pcs potatoes, cubed
  • 1 pcs carrot, cubed
  • 1/4 cup liver spread
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced
  • 1 green capsicum, sliced
  • 2 pcs bird’s eye chili, chopped
  • 2 cups pork stock
  • oil


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 4 pcs bay leaves
  • 1 tbs whole peppercorns
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced


  1. In a bowl, combine all marinade ingredients together. Add the pork belly to the marinade, making sure it is fully coated. Let it marinate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Remove the pork from the marinade and sear until browned on all sides. Set aside.
  3. In the same pot, sauté the minced garlic and chopped onions until fragrant. Add the sliced capsicums and cook for a few minutes until slightly softened.
  4. Return the seared pork to the pot with the vegetables. Pour in the marinade, coconut milk, and pork stock. Stir in the peanut butter, liver spread and chillies.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and let it simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or until the pork is tender and the flavours have melded together. Stir occasionally and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  6. After the pork has simmered, add the carrots, potatoes, and capsicum to the pot. Continue simmering until the vegetables are cooked through and tender.
  7. Serve and enjoy.

  1. What a delicious way to prepare pork belly! Have never thought of using coconut milk and peanut butter with pork belly…definitely something I should try!

  2. Whoa – what a wonderful and unique dish packed with some great flavours, textures, and colours (it does look happy!) I’m intrigued by the use of liver spread and peanut butter – they sound as a lovely addition!

  3. I love all the flavors in this dish, Raymund! I’ve never had either and adobo or kaldereta — I love that you put together the two for a fusion dish!

    It does look really good. Love the colours!

  5. Kalderobo is new to me, but the ingredients (and colors!) sound fantastic. I do love fusion food, and this one is a fun combination of flavors. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Hannah says:

    Wow, that sounds so rich and complex! Coconut and peanut butter make an unbeatable combo, then factor in some spice and acid, I can only imagine how it all comes together. I really want to try these flavors with seitan now!

  7. Neil says:

    There is so much going on in that bowl. I just want to reach in with my spoon! I can taste the rich and savoury flavours in my mouth! Yum!


    Made me think of paella (one of my preferred foods) though they have different ingredients.
