Filipinos love bola-bola or meatballs. But, sometimes the tiny finger food meatballs aren’t just enough. What if we make meat rolls? We call it EMBUTIDO and it’s just so good! In fact, this one isn’t just served as a snack. It can be paired with rice too. Learn this Pinoy recipe below.
What You Need
- 1 onion, chopped
- 700 grams ground pork
- 1 cup crushed pineapples, drained
- 1 large carrot, shredded
- 1 cup raisins
- ¼ cup banana ketchup
- 3 eggs, well-beaten
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 3 hard-boiled eggs, quartered
- 3 pieces Vienna sausages, quartered lengthwise
What To Do
- Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan over medium heat. Sauté onions until soft. Remove from pan and let cool.
- In a large bowl, combine ground pork, crushed pineapple, carrot, onion, raisins, ketchup, beaten eggs, salt and pepper. Mix until all ingredients are distributed.
- On a 12-inch aluminum foil, spread 1/3 of the mixture to a rectangle shape. Arrange hard-boiled eggs and sausages in the middle and carefully roll to form a log. Wrap the foil around the meat and twist the ends of the foil to seal it. Repeat with the remaining pork mixture.
- In a roasting pan, add 2 inches of water. Arrange the meat logs on a roasting rack and position it on top of the water-filled pan. Bake in an oven under 375F temperature for 50-60 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before opening the foil.
- In a pan, pour oil until it is 1 inch deep. Fry the embutido. Turn occasionally to ensure that all sides are browned. Remove from pan and let cool. Slice into desired thickness and serve.
