Pork Embutido

Over the years, I have tweaked my pork embutido recipe many times~from adding liver spread to mixing in cheese~until I arrived to this version which has become a frequent request of family and friends.  The thing I like about these Filipino-style meatloaves is that they are not only impressive on a party table but they also serve equally well paired with fried rice as an easy breakfast meal or sandwiched between bread rolls for a satisfying mid-afternoon snack. Keeping a steady supply in the freezer has certainly saved me from worrying about dinner on many hectic days.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Yield: 6 to 8 Servings

Pork Embutido


  • 1-1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 pieces vienna sausages, cut into four lengthwise
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup banana ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • cooking oil


  1. In a saucepan, bring enough water to cover eggs to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Gently lower 3 of the eggs into the water and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove eggs and transfer to a bowl of iced water. Crack shell, peel and quarter each egg lengthwise.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the remaining three eggs.
  3. In a pan over medium heat, heat about 1 tablespoon of oil. Add onions and cook until limp.
  4. In a large bowl, combine ground pork, carrots, sauteed onions, ketchup, crushed pineapple, raisins, beaten eggs, salt and pepper. Mix well until evenly distributed.
  5. On center of a 12-inch aluminum foil, spread 1/3 of the pork mixture creating a rectangular shape. Arrange sliced eggs and vienna sausages on top and middle of pork mixture. Carefully roll mixture to form a log of about 3-inch in diameter. Wrap the foil around the meat and crimp ends of foil to seal tightly. Repeat with remaining pork mixture.
  6. In a roasting pan, add about 2 inches of water. Arrange foil-wrapped pork mixture on a roasting rack and position rack on top of water-filled pan. Bake in a 375 F oven for about 50 to 60 minutes or until juice runs clear when pork rolls are pierced with a knife. Allow to cool before peeling foil.
  7. In a pan, heat about 1 inch of oil. Add embutido and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned on all sides. Let stand for about 5 minutes before slicing into desired thickness.
