Chicken Embutido

So, did I really say chicken embutido? Chicken? Yes, chicken. You can buy ground chicken meat in the supermarket, didn’t you know? And it makes wonderful embutido. Recipe found in pinoycook.net


Beef Embutido

Well, I have my own way of cooking embutido. To start with, I use lean ground beef instead of pork. Secondly, I only use two beaten eggs for every half kilo of meat. I don’t steam the embutido; I bake them. I also have some secret ingredients to help them retain their shape as well as add a moist creamy texture. Recipe procedure found in pinoycook.net.
