Rellenong Pusit (Stuffed Squid)

Rellenong Pusit literally translates to Stuffed Squid: “relleno” is the Spanish word for stuffed. This recipe calls for large squids to be stuffed with cooked ground pork or beef.
Combining the rich taste of pork or beef with the tasty flavor of the squid is like no other. The ingredients work pleasantly in providing the right balance in taste.
In this particular recipe, I used of ground beef (left-over from my lumpia =D) and the pusit is is a partition from my earlier recipe of adobong pusit.  

1/2 kg medium sized squids - clean
1/4 KG ground Beef
celery, chopped
1 small onion, minced
3 tbsp garlic, minced
1 medium tomato, diced
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp fish sauce
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Cooking oil

  1. Pour fish sauce to squid. Set aside.
  2. Heat a pan and pour-in cooking oil.
  3. Sauté garlic, onion, celery, and tomato.
  4. Put-in the ground beef and cook until the color turns light brown (about 10-15 minutes).
  5. Add salt and ground black pepper then stir. Cook for another 10 minutes. Turn-off heat and let cool.
  6. Stuff the marinated squid with the cooked ground beef. Insert toothpicks at the opening of the squid to secure the filling.
  7. Dredge in flour the stuffed squid and set aside.
  8. Heat another pan and pour-in cooking oil.
  9. Pan-fry the squid. Cook each side for 3 to 5 minutes. Do not overcook the squid to maintain its juicy taste and tenderness.
  10. Transfer the cooked squid in a serving plate and serve.
