How to Make Chicken and Pork Embutido
Making your own embutido can never be easier. I do it by preparing the meat mixture first. Combine the ground meats and then add carrot, raisin, onion, and sweet relish. I also add Lady’s Choice Mayonnaise in this specific recipe. It is not a common ingredient for embutido. However, it helps keep the meatloaf dish moist and it also adds flavor into it. Mix everything until blended. You may use a kitchen spoon or your bare hands to do this step.
Next, I add eggs to bind the mixture and season it with salt and pepper. I also add breadcrumbs to absorb the moisture. This will keep the mixture intact.
This embutido version has boiled eggs and hotdogs in the center. Arrange the filling by scooping around ¾ cup of meat mixture and place it on a piece of aluminum foil. The foil should have a measurement of 12×8 inches. Flatten the meat mixture and then arrange the hotdog and eggs side-by-side. Secure by rolling the aluminum foil and twist both edges to compress the mixture inside.
It takes 60 minutes to steam embutido. You can use any type of steamer. I used a bamboo steamer for this recipe. Simply boil 1 to 2 quarts of water in a pot. Arrange the embutido in a bamboo steamer. Place the steamer on the pot with boiling water and steam until completely cooked.
I suggest letting the meatloaf cool down before slicing. It is even better to serve it cold. Chill it in the fridge for 3 hours before slicing and serving. You can also fry it and eat with rice.
