  • 1 kg Ground Pork (with a little fat)
  • 1 pc Carrot, medium-sized, finely chopped
  • 1 pc Onion, small, finely chopped
  • 1 pc Red Bell Pepper, finely chopped
  • 60 g Pickle Relish
  • 50 g Raisins
  • 4 pcs Chorizo de Bilbao, finely chopped
  • 1 cup Sweet Ham, finely chopped
  • 100 g Skim Milk
  • 20 g Iodized Salt
  • 50 g Brown Sugar
  • 100 g Bread Crumbs
  • 2 pcs Eggs, Large
  • Aluminum Foil to wrap


In a bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until well blended. Place about 100 g of mixture on a piece of foil and roll into a loaf, making sure the mixture is tightly packed and wrapped securely by the piece of foil. Close by twisting both ends of the foil. You can modify the amount depending on how big and how many you want to make per preparation. Put the embotido packs in a steamer and steam for 45 minutes. Embotido is served sliced into rings.

Freeze remaining embotido packs for longer shelf life. Now you have an easy-to-serve dish to be reheated in a few minutes before serving. To heat, steam (with foil) or microwave (without foil). Serve immediately.

About Us (circa 2009)

Our journey led us to this place. A little more than 10 years ago we began our journey as husband and wife. Three years later, we found ourselves with two bundles of joy- a daughter and then a son. They're the children we've dreamed of having.

About five years since the birth of our son, an unexpected gift came- a younger brother to our school-age kids. And soon enough, a baby girl arrived to round the family membership.

Brave was a term used by a friend to describe us. Challenging... and loving it -- yeah, this journey is not for the faint of heart.
