Ready, Set, Cook! Reynolds Wrap Contest Entry. Embutido is a Filipino counterpart of meat loaf, although meat roll is more accurate. The dish originally calls for ground pork as its main ingredient, but I decided to use ground beef as a substitute. The result is a much richer and flavorful dish that pairs well with the Peach Sauce.
