Chicken Embutido (Filipino Meatloaf)

Chicken Embutido is tasty, comforting and adds a uniquely Filipino appeal in our Noche Buena! It’s classic Filipino, full of flavors and brings back beautiful memories. I love this recipe because it has been passed on by every generation. Even with little tweaks here and there, it has remained in our hearts as a traditional dish we share and savour during the holidays.

recipe notes

  1. Make sure to measure the size of steamer so that you have a guide on how long your meatloaf should be.
  2. After  sautéing  the vegetables, it’s very important to cool it down before adding to the mixture to avoid cross contamination.
  3. Don’t overmix your meatloaf mixture as it will result to dry and tough texture.
