4 cups uncooked Japanese rice 4 cups water 5 sheets sushi-nori (seaweed) 1 can SPAM or SPAM Lite
Furukaki 1/4 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup rice wine (mirin)
Cook rice in rice cooker. If no rice cooker is available, put rice and water into a large heavy saucepan. Heat water and rice until boiling then immediately turn down and simmer for approximately 20-25 mins. or until soft and water is evaporated. Boil soy sauce, sugar and rice wine. After it boils, turn off flame. Cut SPAM into 1/4 in. wide slices. Fry in pan. Soak fried SPAM in soy sauce mixture. Line a musubi maker with sushi nori so that both sides stick straight up. Spread cooked rice across bottom of musubi maker, on top of nori - 1/4 inch high. Sprinkle furukaki on top of rice. Place two pieces of SPAM in musubi maker on top of rice. SPAM should cover most of the length of the musubi maker. Spread more cooked rice on top of spam - 1/4 in. high. Sprinkle furukaki on top of rice. Fold over one side of the nori. Use musubi maker insert to press down on top of nori, rice and SPAM. Fold over other side of nori and press down. Remove musubi log from maker. Cut each log into four pieces.
Used to make these with my mom for our school lunches and dad's lunch, too and for after school snacks if get any leftovers.
