Nothing beats traditional monghe, so we’ve developed our own recipe that will help you prepare the ultimate embutido for your Filipino fiesta. While you can buy your embutido from a local store, we recommended following our separate recipe for the best results. This mushroom onion gravy is the perfect accompaniment to a dish that’s typically served on special occasions.

  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • cooking oil
  • 8 slices embutido
  • 1 cup broth
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp Knorr® Liquid Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp Lady’s Choice® Sandwich Spread
  • ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in ½ cup water (slurry)
  • 8 oz button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 large yellow onion, peeled and cut into thin ring slices

Place corn starch in a bowl and beaten eggs in another.


Pre-heat your cooking oil. Dip the pork loaf slices into corn starch, then the egg. Place in the hot oil and cook for 3 minutes, turning until brown all over. Remove and set aside.


Meanwhile, in a small saucepan bring the broth to the boil. Add the soy, Knorr® Liquid Seasoning, ground pepper, and Lady’s Choice® Sandwich Spread. Keep whisking until all the ingredients dissolve.


Next, pre-heat oil in the pan and add your onions. Stir constantly for 8 minutes or until brown. Do the same with the mushrooms. Add these to the gravy.


Add the corn starch slurry and stir until thick and smooth.


Pour over monghe slices and serve warm.
