Do you know Embotido?

Germany
May 5, 2021 5:58am CST
Hello Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening to all my dear mylotters I woke up in a windy and rainy day. Too bad weather today. I can`t go out like this again. Oh well. I`ll just have to do more longer dancing exercise Today, I am craving for this Embotido which will take a little bit of your effort to make. I think I can only explain what are the things in there but can`t actually explain well. Here goes how to prepare it. First. You must have a kilo of ground pork then mix it with chopped hot dogs, chorizo, grated cheese 1 box, red bell pepper,7pcs olives, 2 slices of loaf bread, a teaspoon of milk, 4pcs eggs and carrots. mix it all together and wrap it with a foil just like in the photo like a large hot dog. Then, you have to boil it for 1 hour with lots of water, tomatoes, salt and onion. Then, let it cool down before serving it. It is something I learned from my grandmother and my mother loves how I make it She wants me to make on special occasions like Christmas and New Year because it is expensive How about you my dear mylotters? Do you know Embotido? What are you having for today? I hope you can share it with me here Have a great day and Happy mylotting Photo: google

I do not boil embutido but I steam it after I wrap it in foil. After that I cool it down and then you can freeze them. I like that but I do not make this anymore since you can buy it easily now. I like to do morcon but it very difficult to do

Good thing you can buy it there anywhere but we don`t have here like this. That`s why I have to make my own to enjoy that. I know how to make morcon too. It is hard but it is really delicious

I think you mean steam instead of boil. You pour water on the steamer and let boil while the wrapped embutido is neatly arranged atop the steamer. We do make embutido mostly on special occasions like Christmas, I'd rather just buy one instead of making my own although homemade is more delicious than the ones you can buy but of course less hassle and effort on our part. Embutido also tastes good with raisins in the mixture, some would put boiled eggs too, pickle relish, and add some bread bits or bread crumbs as an extender.

@pitsipeahie It is how my grandmother taught me. I just followed her way of doing it. The taste is really good. The water that has been used to boil the embutido is the one I use for spaghetti sauce. That`s why we only make this on special occasions but you have a point there.It`s just that I don`t have a bigger steamer to do it.

@m_audrey6788 I do not know about you but If it’s really embutido and not some other kind of meatloaf, then yes, it is steamed. Even if you search it on the net, you will see it’s steamed or baked but never boiled by submerging the wrapped embutido in aluminum foil in water. If you submerge the embutido in the water to boil, then the flavor would just go into the water and it will lose its taste. (even if the water is spiced) It might also break your embutido. You have to put it above the water by placing it on a rack then cover the pan or better use the steamer. Anyway, just sayin’ because i’ve never heard of boiling the embutido itself directly in the water. If that is how you do it, then I would respect it.

I know how to make real good embotido because way back, when our clan was still intact and has not spread out into the world, we would meet for Christmas and other occasions, I always prepare embotido as my share. My relatives even get extra to take home. For my own family now, my daughter prepares chicken embotido.

@m_audrey6788 The pork, of course, is tastier but the chicken is healthier.

You can try it. After mixing it just put it in an aluminum foil just like in the photo. Then boil it with tomatoes, salt and onion for 1 hour
