Embutido

It is three days before Christmas, and it reminds me of Christmas time in the Philippines. There are some Christmas traditions that I truly miss.  I miss the simbang gabi (morning mass) that I used to go to for nine mornings. I miss all the good foods that we usually have at this time of the year. Some of my favorites are bibingka, puto bumbong, leche flan, baked ham and embutido.

Embutido is made of ground pork mixed with chorizo, relish, eggs, onions and breadcrumbs. It is wrapped with foil and then either steamed or baked. Filipinos love to serve this dish on Christmas Eve or Noche Buena.

Happy holidays everyone! :D

    Is there a sauce you serve with this? I notice one off to the side in the picture. Am making food for an ill friend from the Philippines. Am making your arroz Faldo, because it sounds like a comfort food. Any other suggestions? I thought I’d make this meatloaf with rice. Thank you!

      Hi Valerie,
      That was nice of you to cook for a friend. I am pretty sure your friend would appreciate any thing you make for her/him. I serve embutido with ketchup and yes, arroz caldo would be a great food to cook for a person who is not feeling well.
