User Friendly Onigiri
100 mins (prep 60, cooking 40)
5 ingredients
20 servings
My DH and roommate both love sushi, and hate the fact that I don't like nori so I won't learn to make Japanese food for them at home. After looking around here and doing some playing around in the kitchen yesterday, this is what I came up with: onigiri using an Asian flavored version of my User Friendly Meatballs (User Friendly Meatballs). My picky picky DD told me to keep this recipe, so I am posting it. :) I had ground beef on hand, but you could use any ground meat (pork sounds really yummy).
