What is the adequate temperature to bake embudito?

When we talk about baking an embutido, the baking temperature is everything. It is the essential key element that you need to master and control to improve the texture of the embutido meatloaf and increase the speed at which it becomes tender.

So whether you are using a conventional or an electric oven, the optimal temperature that you should bake an embutido at is 350 degrees, by attaining this temperature you will ensure that your meatloaf is well baked without drying out. 

Based on what we mentioned, if the baking temperature did not reach the recommended  350 degrees, you will confront one of the following conditions:

  • If you use a temperature higher than 350°F, the outer crust of your embutido will burn faster than the interior, thus the latter will remain raw.
  • If you use a temperature lower than 350 degrees, you will bake the embutido but you will not get that delicious crust
