  • 3 lbs ground pork
  • 1 large yellow onion minced
  • 1 large red bell pepper minced
  • 1 large carrot minced
  • 3/4 to 1 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 2 to 4 oz. raisins
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs
  • 4 to 5 cups water for steaming


  • Prepare the embutido meatloaf by combining the following ingredients in a large mixing bowl: ground pork, onion, red bell pepper, carrot, sweet relish, raisins, cheese, eggs, salt, and ground black pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are blended.
  • Add the bread crumbs. Continue to mix until well blended.
  • Scoop a cup of embutido mixture and place over a sheet of pre-cut aluminum foil (12 x 10 inches). Mold the mixture to form a cylindrical shape. Roll the foil and secure both edges. Set aside. Do this until all the embutido meatloaf mixture is consumed.
  • Arrange the wrapped embutido in a steamer. Pour water on the steamer and let boil. Steam (in medium heat) for 60 minutes.
  • Remove the steamed pork embutido from the steamer. Let it cool down. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Slice and arrange in a serving plate. You can also fry it.
  • Serve. Share and enjoy!
