COOKING WITH NEWBIES: How To Make Cheesy Embutido
This newbie cook learns the secret to making his favorite embutido cheesy and delicious.
A recipe that has a long list of ingredients is not hard to make! The only thing that a long list does is make it that¬†much more flavorful. You¬†get all the benefits of the flavors of each ingredient, making it¬†super flavorful and appetizing to eat. You¬†get a more complex flavor than from a recipe that only has a few ingredients in it.¬†
However,¬†all those ingredients also make the prep work longer. You will have to chop, slice, dice, and¬†mince those ingredients but when it comes to the embutido recipe, all that hard work certainly pays off.
That's one of the lessons¬†Nikko Tuazon, lifestyle editor and expert fryer, learned when he let himself be coached through the making of one his favorite dishes:¬†an¬†embutido recipe.
With the help of Yummy.ph food editor Roselle Miranda, Nikko got through the entire process of making the embutido¬†easily. However, this cheesy embutido¬†recipe makes enough for a big party! We don't need to make¬†that many so for this recipe, we cut the recipe in half so it's more manageable for anyone to make it.¬†
While making this recipe, Nikko learned the tips he needed to know to use a knife safely and effectively.¬†He discovered that the embutido, despite¬†the long list of ingredients, is easy to make because, once it's made, it's easy to cook since it's just steamed.¬†
Nikko also learned that this isn't your typical embutido recipe.¬†
He learned how this embutido recipe¬†is made more special using a¬†secret ingredient that's no longer so secret: powdered milk. The powdered milk is essential in¬†making this meatloaf roll not only cheesier, but also¬†creamier.¬†Nikko had one taste of the embutido, and you can see from his expression how delicious it is.¬†
Plus, Nikko not only learned how to make his¬†favorite embutido, but he can now also make a big batch of these meatloaf rolls with more confidence.¬†
