Embutido is the Filipino version of a meatloaf using ground pork meat. It is usually served during special occasions like Fiesta, birthdays and of course at holidays. The name itself has spanish origins that refer to cured sausages but Filipino Embutido is something different. It is usually wrapped in aluminum foil and then steamed. I tried baking them once but I have to say that the steamed version tastes better and has the better texture than the baked one.

A special embutido have sausage and hard-boiled egg in the middle but you can leave them out and it will still taste great. After being steamed, they can be frozen and then can last at least a month. Embutido can be eaten cold but I personally prefer to fry them before eating served with hot steamed rice dipped in ketchup or sweet-chili sauce.
