Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 stalks green onions minced
  • 1 ginger 2 inch piece, minced
  • 4 tbsp fish sauce
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 18 squid tubes
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
  • Combine ground pork, garlic, green onions, ginger, and fish sauce in a medium sized bowl. Use your hands to mix all the ingredients together. Set aside once well mixed.
  • Stuff squid tubes with pork mixture. Leave 1/2 inch of room at the top.
  • Weave a toothpick through the top of each squid tube to keep the mixture in while it's cooking.
  • Place the squid on a baking sheet. Brush with the vegetable oil.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes. The stuffed squid is done when the ground pork is a brown color. I usually cut it open to make sure it's cooked.
