Embutido is one of the popular dishes that are prepared specially for the holiday season. I have made a post on embutido recipe a few months back but that version was influenced by the commercial versions that uses hotdog core fillings and aluminum foil wrapper. For my holiday celebration version, I am making an embutido as close, as authentic and comparable to the versions our grandparents used to make the original method of making embutido. For the wrapper I used sinsal or pork lard leaf as wrapper instead of aluminum foil. Sinsal is the original wrapper for embutido. For the sausage core filling, I used Vienna sausage it is the original core filling before the coming of hotdogs. For the steaming water, I have added little vinegar, lots of crushed garlic and bay leaf that resulted an adobo aroma that was infused in the steaming embutido. Embutido is supposed to be serve with banana ketchup, I prefer it steamed for me this is how embutido should be served.
