Embutido Recipe

Embutido is a type of meatloaf prepared Filipino style. Though a well known dish for the holidays, Embutido can be enjoyed everyday without any hassle. Several meat processing companies now produce this meatloaf for commercial purposes; all you have to do is grab one from your favorite grocery store.For those of you who want to enjoy the naturally prepared Embutido, this is the recipe to go for.

My version (or should I say my Mom’s :) ) focuses more on giving this dish the wonderful taste and aroma that can’t be found in commercialized Embutido. You can serve this as a cold cut or you can even fry it after steaming. Do whatever you want but don’t forget to put the Banana Catsup on the side. I like to eat Embutido either warm or cold. I eat this as n appetizer (cold cut) when cold, while I treat this as a main dish eaten with white rice when warm. If you are still intimidated to make this yourself, you should try watching the video for you to see how you can easily prepare this just by yourself. I am sure that you can successfully prepare this delicious embutido on your first attempt.

In terms of storage, you can freeze embutido and it will last for a month. Make sure that you thaw it by exposing in room temperature for a couple of hours; do not microwave as it will react with the aluminum foil.
