Chamberlain (beef casserole)

Chamberlain…………The name was invented by my father-in-law. meaning in tagalog is “chamba chamba” or in english – lucky dish”. It is very similar to kalderetang baka as they have both almost the same ingredients with the absence of some major ingredients such as chicken liver or spread, sky flakes and more. That’s why I really love the culinary world. You can modify every kind of cuisine depending on your taste as long as you make your dish with love and loyalty. Do you agree?……………………Did you know that the main ingredients of my recipe for today is tomatoes? and tomatoes number one source of lycopene which act as a powerful antioxidant that fight cancer cells. And in addition, according to the some studies, daily consumption of tomatoes decreases the oxidative stress in type 2 diabetes. Also tomato helps in reducing the risk of developing hypertension………….
