Baked Embutido, Filipino-Style Meatloaf

I love Embutido. It reminds me of Christmastime in the Philippines and I wanted to remake my version for my family. 

Embutido is the Filipino-style meatloaf, traditionally steamed and stuffed with olives, raisins, eggs, and Vienna sausages. Like many of Filipino dishes, Embutido is Spanish-inspired and so delicious. Embutido is quite different from a classic meatloaf recipe. How long to bake meatloaf depends on the size of the loaf and your oven temperature.

Baked Embutido

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 small Spanish onion or red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1 small can of green pimento stuffed olives
  • 1 can Vienna Sausage or Spanish hard chorizo
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 hard boiled egg, quartered
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs

Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Take your ground pork and gently mix all the seasonings and vegetables together. 

Take a cookie sheet and line with aluminum foil. Spread the ground pork mixture on the foil and add the chorizo and eggs. 

Roll (watch the video for details). Then, place in the fridge for about 20 minutes. 

Then baked for about 1 hour, until it's 165 degrees. Let rest and slice. 

Serve with Banana Ketchup and rice.

How did you get the top brown? Did you have to fry it as well, or broil?! Thanks.

Tried this recipe today. It was good but i think next time i will add egg into mixture to bind it better as it came out all crumbly. And maybe regular bake as i did waterbath and it just steamed away and doesnt have that golden brown finish. Spray the foil with oil too.

Thank you for the video. Sadly the ingredients are wrong. You did not use pimientos, cheese, mixed pickles and soy sauce. The rolls are NOT STUFFED, otherwise this is Ballotina. We mixed all ingredients well to have the aroma. Bread is seldom use. And most of all, the rolls are steamed and then later fried. Cold water from hands will cut the longevity of the food especially in warm places.
