    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.

    1. Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4.

    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

    I had ground pork and chorizo on hand and did an AR search and this came up. I did not have the canned luncheon meat. My hubby and son liked this, but we all thought it was *really* salty. I even used low-sodium soy sauce. I cannot imagine how salty it would be with Spam (or similar) in it, too. I didn't even add any salt (rarely do). For leftovers, we nixed the sauce and used Heinz 57 for sauce. It was much better. So I'll make this again, but without the sauce. Neither my son nor my husband could tell this had raisens (I used golden ones) and they loved the pickles in it! I'll have to ask my Filipino neighbor how authentic this is.  -  12 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
