  1. Place the squid and onions into a large saucepan with the cinnamon stick, cloves, and bay leaves. Cover, and simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes. During this time the squid will release its juices. Uncover the pan, and simmer until the juice has mostly evaporated. Remove the cinnamon stick, cloves, and bay leaves.
  2. Stir in the wine, olive oil, malt vinegar and pepper. Cover and cook over low heat for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. If necessary, remove the lid shortly before the end of cooking to allow the sauce to thicken. Ladle into bowls to serve.

MMMMM, this was easy and good. It did take more time than the recipe suggested (as noted by others). It took much more than 10 minutes for the juice to reduce (at the point before you add the ...

I believe this recipe is for cuttlefish rather than squid (judging by the "soupies" in the title as well), although it's tasty when made with squid too. It's well worth trying it with cuttlefish...

The sauce was spicy but it was missing something. I added chicken bouillon for better taste. I won't make this again.

Well I haven't tried this yet but it sounds yummylicious!:) We'll see,
