Embutido Recipe


  • 750g pork mince
  • 250g veal mince
  • 3 medium carrots (finely diced)
  • 1 large red onion (finely diced)
  • 8 sweet spiced gherkins (finely diced)
  • 2 salami sticks (thinly sliced)
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheese
  • 2 Tbsp raisins
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 12 hard boiled eggs (peeled)


Combine all the ingredients (except for the hard boiled eggs) in a large bowl. Using your hands, mix all the ingredients well. If you find it a bit sticky and doesn’t hold it’s shape when you make a ball, add more bread crumbs.

  1. Make 5 6 evenly sized balls and set them aside. They should look roughly about 7 cm in diameter.
  2. Take one half of the meat ball and flatten it into an oval like shape about 1/3 of the way down on a large foil sheet.
  3. Place two eggs in the middle and add more meat in between the 2 eggs. Finally cover it with the rest of the other half of the meat ball.
  4. Roll the foil tightly over the meat into a log. Make sure that it’s tight otherwise it may fall apart during the steaming process. Twist the ends of the foil to close.
  5. Repeat the above steps 5 more times to finish off your rolls.

Steam the rolls (3 at a time) for about 1 hour. Set them aside to cool. Take out the foil wrapping then slice and serve with steamed rice and tomato dipping sauce. You can store them in the fridge for a couple more days and they actually hold the shape better.
