About this recipe: This is a richly flavoured meatloaf recipe from the Philippines called Embutido. It calls for no fewer than three different incarnations of pork! The accompanying sauce is especially tasty and easy to make.


Serves: 8 

  • 675g minced pork
  • 1 (340g) tin SPAM©, sliced thin
  • 225g chorizo de bilbao (spicy Spanish semi-cured sausage), sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cornichons
  • 45g raisins
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour

  1. Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Mix together the minced pork, SPAM, chorizo de bilbao, cornichons, raisin, eggs, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Form the mixture into 2 logs and wrap with aluminium foil. Place the wrapped logs in a baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
  4. Set the loaves aside to rest. Carefully drain the dripping from the baking dish into a small saucepan placed over medium heat. Stir the soy sauce and cornflour into the dripping; bring to the boil. Cook the mixture at a boil, stirring continually, until the sauce is thick, 5 to 7 minutes. Unwrap the meatloaves and slice; serve the sauce over sliced meatloaf.

the cooking method must be steaming not baking. Many filipinos use this method as inherited from the Chinese and fusion of Spanish. - 11 Nov 2013
