                         -----STUFFED CALAMARI-----
   12       lg           Squids
      1/2   lb           Ground pork
    3                    Green onions, finely sliced
    1                    Egg, beaten
                         Salt and pepper to taste
    1                    Garlic clove, minced
    1       tb           Vegetable oil
    1       md           Onion, chopped
    1       md           Tomato, chopped
      1/2                Bay leaf
    1       tb           Soy sauce
 
   Remove squid heads and ink sacs, clean the calamari outside and inside.
   Sprinkle salt lightly on squids and set aside.
   In a large bowl combine ground pork, green onions, beaten egg and a little
   salt and pepper.
   Stuff squid cavities with meat mixture. This is messy and slippery, don't
   over stuff the calamari as the stuffing will swell when cooking. A pastry
   bag makes this easier to do.
   Place a pan in a steamer and steam the calamari covered for 10-15 minutes,
   or until filling is cooked. Drain liquid and set aside.
   Prepare sauce while steaming calamari.  In a skillet over medium heat,
   saute garlic in oil until lightly browned. Add onion and stir for 1 minute.
   Add tomato, bay leaf and soy sauce and cook for 3-5 minutes until tomato
   pieces are soft.
   Pour sauce on top of stuffed calamari.  Serve with rice.
   Note: I save the tentacles from the calamari and as a side dish stir fry
   them with some shrimp and vegetables. I used the broth from steaming the
   calamari as a liquid in this dish. This is NOT a good dish to serve to
   people who don't like calamari or are a bit squeamish.
   Regular bananas can be used but they should be very firm and green.
