Embutido Recipe (Filipino Meat Loaf )
Filipino meatloaf featuring ingredients that appeared in the Philippines during the American occupation. The origin of Filipino Style Embutido can be traced when Spain colonized the Philippines for three and a half centuries beginning in the middle of the 15th century. During that time, the Spaniards introduced different recipes of their sausages such as Chorizo, Longaniza, and Embutido. It’s for this reason why Embutido is regarded as a generic term for sausages in the Spanish language.
