Beef Caldereta (Filipino Beef Stew)

It's hard to think what's going to cook for today,with just me and my son,i admit we're not much of a veggie eater ^_~! I know i need to teach my son how to eat veggies and im sorry for myself too,but i've learned already and carlo's learning too.Today,after sending him to school,me and my good friend Gina went to market as usual.I ended up buying half kilo of pork ribs instead of beef coz my son don't eat much of it so i just bought pork ribs, plus the ingredients when you're making a "caldereta".She taught me how to do it,so here it is.

you will need:

1/2 k pork ribs cubed
3pcs potato sliced
1-2 pcs carrot(s)sliced
1pc medium size red bell pepper
1 /4 cup kakang gata (coconut cream)
1 cup coconut milk
1 medium onion chopped
1 garlic clove crushed
1 bell pepper cut into strips
1 small pack tomato sauce
salt and pepper

How to cook:

Pour the coconut milk(for a better taste) in a caserolle add beef/pork ribs and boil until tender.
In a separate pan sauté garlic and onion. Add to ribs broth.
Add kakang gata and tomato sauce,allow to simmer for ten minutes.
Add bell pepper, carrots, and potatoes.
Simmer until potatoes and carrots are tender, then add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve hot on individual servings of a bed of cooked rice.
