Embutido: A Filipino Meatloaf

One day, I was in a friend’s house and she was making Embutido when I arrived. I watched her as she makes it. While she was in the process of making it, I was thinking how does it taste? My mom never made it, so, I did not have any idea. There are commercialized frozen Embutido available in stores but we never tried getting one. I don’t even know why.

When my friend’s done with the dish, I finally got to try it and I loved it. From that moment, I am really eager to make my own, too. It took years since I tried cooking one. I still have to search through the internet because I can’t anymore remember what my friend told me regarding the ingredients. I found a good recipe from Panlasang Pinoy.



I love to fry the steamed Embutido and it tastes really good with rice and ketchup or sweet chili sauce. 😀
