There is no easier way to prepare Pork Embutido than steaming it. Then you can either fry it or heat it in a microwave before serving.

  • 1 kilo half lean ground pork 1/2 lean and 1/2 fat
  • ¼ cup bell pepper
  • ¼ cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper
  • ½ cup carrots cut in small cubes
  • 1 large onion minced
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder or 3 cloves fresh garlic finely chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup raisins soaked in water first


  • In a large mixing bowl. Mix all ingredients until well blended NOTE: you can bake 1 tbsp of the pork mix in the oven to check if you need to adjust seasoning.
  • Let rest for ½ hour to marinate
  • Prepare 6 to 7 pieces of foil . Lay a piece of square foil on a flat surface and place around 250 grams of the pork mixture onto the center of each foil.
  • Finally, roll the aluminum foil into a tightly packed log about 1″ to 2″ in diameter, sealing on both ends. Repeat with the remaining pork mixture.
  • Place the embutido in a steamer and steam for an hour.
  • Let it cool and slice. Serve with ketchup or your favorite sauces. Bon Appetit!


Alternatively, if you don’t have a steamer: place embutido in a wire rack on a baking pan, half filled with hot water. Cover with aluminum foil (Be sure the steam will not escape). Steam-bake in the center of the oven for an hour.
