Embutido Recipe

There's a dish in the PHilippines called Embutido.  What it is  a meatloaf but Filipino style.  It has  different ingredients but the main ingredient which is  ground pork or ground beef is there. I have never made this dish before but always loved to eat some when gfriends makes them.  Well, to have something different for Cinco de Mayo (we are not Mexican but we would love to celebrate with them anyways), I decided to  give embutido a try.  I was trying to follow  a recipe but I did not have all the ingredients it requires so I just rerouted it  quite a bit.  So here is what I came up with.

Ingredients
  •  1.5 kb  ground pork 
  • 2 boiled  eggs 
  • 2 medium shallots
  • 1 cup  grated carrots 
  • 1 cup  chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish 
  • 2 cups gluten free salted caramel Glutino pretzel (as a substitute for bread)
  • 1/2 cup  chopped  mushroom (I did not have raisin so I used mushroom)
  • 1 cup  grated cheese (I used 4-cheese)
  • 1 1/2 cups  2% milk
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
Procedure
  • Soaked the pretzel or bread in the milk for ten minutes.  You can blened the pretzel afterwards or you can just  mash it with potato masher afterwards. I used  this gluten free  pretzel  instead of bread as a way of raising awareness for Celiac Awarenes  Month.

  • Combine all of the ingredients except the eggs and mix it thoroughly including the bread/pretzel soaked in milk. 
  • To make sure that your  mixture has the right  taste, fry a little bit and try it, this way, you can add whatever is lacking in it (salt for example).
  •  Place  2 cups of mixture in an aluminum  foil and spread it a little bit.  Lined up some sliced eggs on top of it. 

  • Add more  mixture on top of the eggs and carefully roll  it towards the other side.  
  • Make sure that you have enough space at both ends so you can tie it up or you can just  securely fold it.
  • Steam for I hour and let it cool and chill overnight.   I made this yesterday sop we will have something special to eat for Cinco de Mayo celebration.

  • Sliced diagonally just before serving. 
 You can add ketchup ( I used sriracha with mine)  on top of it absd eat it steamed rice.  I also had some kimcho, yummy!

I think that my first attempt in maiiung this dish  was a success.  The kids and husband said it was really good so I a happy that they liked it!

This recipe looks very tasty. Looking at the pictures, I imagine it would also taste great in a sandwich with toasted bread.

My grandmother used to make embutido from "scratch" as well. Sadly, we did not get her recipe when she passed away. This one is another we can try. Thanks for sharing!

This looks tasty! Last night, I made an Italian style meatloaf and it was super good. I had no idea that so many cultures had their own version of meatloaf... I thought that the American style was traditional, but now I want to try more styles of it.

Looks pretty good, I'm always looking for a new good thing. We like to keep the kids on their toes with food from other cultures and this looks right up our alley.
