Embutido Recipe (Filipino Style Meatloaf)

Filipino Embutido
This Embutido recipe is a Filipino Style of Meatloaf. This filipino dish is well known in every filipino table during holidays and special occassion.

Embutido is one of my husbands favorite filipino food and whenever I cook this dish, he can consume the whole wrap in a single meal alone. My children also loves embutido especially the portion where the hard-boilded eggs and sausages are located. My husband usually help me in preparing this recipe specially the portion of wrapping the embutido with aluminum foil.

I usually served the embutido with our favorite sweet chili sauce and a ketchup for those who don’t like spicy in their meal.

Ingredients :

  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 1 cup (6 slices) finely chopped (sweet or cooked) ham
  • 3 tbsp. minced green bell pepper
  • 3 tbsp. minced red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • dash of liquid seasoning
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • slices (wedges) of hard-cooked eggs (see recipe)
  • slices (wedges) of Vienna sausage
  • aluminum foil, 10″ x 12″ sizes
(Conversion Tables for Cooking)

Cooking Procedures :

  1. Prepare a steamer and set aside. Alternatively, prepare a baking pan and a wire rack and preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix until well blended.
  3. Divide the mixture into 2 to 4 portions (depending on how many you want to make).
  4. Spread and flatten the mixture onto the center of each foil, divide the slices of hard cook eggs and Vienna sausages. Place each slices at the center of each mixture. Hold the foil onto your hand and roll until the ends of the mixture covers the eggs and sausages. Alternatively, by holding each ends of the foil, roll the mixture back and forth until it covers the slices of eggs and sausages in the center.
  5. Finally, roll the aluminum foil into a tightly packed log about 1″ to 2″ in diameter, sealing on both ends. Repeat with the remaining pork mixture.
  6. Place the embutido in a steamer and steam for an hour. Alternatively, if you don’t have a steamer: place embutido in a wire rack on a baking pan, half filled with hot water. Cover with aluminum foil (Be sure the steam will not escape). Steam-bake in the center of the oven for an hour.
  7. Let it cool and slice into rings. Serve with your favorite catsup or sauces.
  8. Refrigerate unused embutido.

  19. sweet karla says:

    to “tan”.. this liquid seasoning i think is any other kind of liquid seasoning like “knorr liquid seasoning” 😀

  20. kookaii says:

    @ Tan:
    Dash of liquid seasoning is like Knorr seasoning or Maggie seasoning. It comes in a small dark bottle with a long pointed neck. Label is coloured green and yellow for Knorr, and yellow and red for Maggie. Hope this helps.

    I made 5 rolls in total, gave one to my father-in-law ( he called within minutes to tell my fiancee how wonderful it was) and I gave one to my mother-in-law (who owns her own filipino restaurant – she called quick, too). They said the taste, texture, and colour was just as it should be – as if it had been made in the Philipinnes! But I made this dish for the first time, here in Canada – and I’m pure Canadian. It made me very proud that I could do MY filipino family proud!

    Thanks so much for the recipe – it’s our new family favorite and will stay with us forever.
