Embutido is a generic term used for a type of sausage found in Spain, Portugal, Philippines, and several South American countries. Usually embutidos are similar to other European sausages where it made out of minced meat mixed with other spices and ingredients and wrapped in pig’s intestines. Philippine embutido is different, though it contains mince meats and other ingredients the similarity stops there because this dish is not wrapped in an intestine but in an aluminium foil or any equivalent then steamed; just think of it as a steamed wrapped meatloaf.
