Pork Embutido (Filipino Style meat loaf)

This recipe makes 6-8 medium sized embutido rolls.

Half a kilo of Ground Pork (can be substituted with ground chicken or turkey meat)
2 cups diced red bell pepper
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
3-4 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
1.5 cups cooked ham, vienna sausage, or chorizo (i usually use ham)
1.5 cups raisins
3-4 raw eggs (if mixture is dry, add one more egg)
bread crumbs (toast 2 pc of tasty bread and then process in a blender)
1 tablespoon of flour or corn starch (optional, I find the meat loaf to be more compact when this is added)
1 tablespoon of tomato paste (optiona, just a add a bit of color)
salt and pepper to taste
1.  Combine the ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
2.  Wrap the mixture in a sheet of aluminum foil into a tube shape.  Make sure the ends are well sealed.
3.  Steam the wrapped embutido for 45 minutes.


  1. You can also use a pressure cooker if you have one. It cooks the rolls in half the time (20 to 25 minutes…start the timer when pressure is up). Be sure you use a rack to elevate the rolls so it will not touch the water inside.
