Embutido is one of the most common dishes for Filipino occasions. It is a Filipino meat loaf which is cooked by steaming.
Filipino meat loaf is very much the same to the American one. The difference is that Filipino meatloaf is traditionally steamed and has sweet or salty surprises in every bite.
Similar to the history of California, Philippines has been inhabited by Spaniards for a very long years. There’s a lot of Filipino words that were borrowed from the Spanish ones. Embutido is one of them. Embutido is a spanish term for wrapped and rolled like a sausage.
Today, I will be sharing you the Embutido recipe in Bisaya version and is very easy to make.
One thing I love about this dish is that when you’re done rolling them, you can either freeze some of it or cook them all and freeze some of it for serving later.
If freezing later, defrost when ready. You can either steam them if they’re uncooked or slice to fry for reheating and browning.
