My No Fuss Easy to Make Embutido Recipe

Embutido is actually a meat roll dish or meatloaf which is an influence of the Spaniards in the Philippine cuisine.  The word itself is of Spanish origin which means sausage.  Through time this dish has evolved and adapted by many Filipinos.  It is considered to be a special dish that it is usually served on special occasion like Christmas, New Year, Birthdays etc.  A favorite dish that one really loves, no doubt.

Our Aussie friends fell in love with embutido when I made some a few months back and 3 of them got introduced to the dish on my daughter's birthday party last saturday.  My hubby was the one who would usually explain to them what an embutido is and what are the ingredients of this dish.  I guess by this time my hubby knows embutido by heart that he can cook them himself. 

1 k beef minced
1 c fresh milk
7 pcs white bread (cubed and edges removed)
2 large onions, minced
1 big red capcicum, minced
1/2 k hotdogs, minced
1/4 k hotdogs, sliced into strips (6 strips/hotdog)
1/3 c gerkins, minced (pickles)
3/4 c sultanas
4 large carrots, minced
2 eggs, beaten
8 eggs, hardboiled, each egg divided into 6 pieces
1 1/2  tbsp salt (depend on your taste)

Dissolve bread into the milk.  Mix into the beef.
Add the rest of the ingredients except the hardboiled eggs and hotdog strips.  Mix well.
Place 3/4 c of the mixture onto a foil.  Flatten.
Place hardboiled egg slices and hotdog strips alternately in the middle of the meat mixture. 
Roll the meat making sure that the eggs and hotdogs are still in the middle  of the mixture.
Fold both ends of the foil.
Place the embutido rolls into a steamer.
Steam for 30 minutes (from the time the water boils).
Serve with ketchup or gravy.
