Without doubt the best, most detailed Sushi Rice technique I've ever heard of. Perfect results every time and the flavour is something else entirely!

Outstanding effort. Thanks so much for sharing!

I always make bad rice, so I was stressed about making sushi rice, but with this recipe I made "perfect sushi rice!" Thank you BirdyBaker sharing your father's recipe.

This recipe worked really well for me! I cooked the sushi rice in my ricw cooker. After it cooled a bit I put the rice in a glass 9x13. I drizzled the vinegar mixture over it and tossed very gently. I then let that sit at room temp for a while (at least a couple hours). If you taste the rice right after you mix it with the dressing it will be a little wet and very strong. Wait until it sits and its perfect! I made awesome veggie rolls with this and the kids loved it! It also saved me $$$ by not having to to go out to sushi! ?

This is my go to recipe when making Spam Musubi. I learned to make musubi with seasoned rice, but lost the recipe. This is a terrific substitute for my original recipe.

Thank you so much! This was very precise and soo simple! It was sticky, just like it needed to be and tasty, although a little too sweet. However, I intend to make this again following the recipe exactly to see if I should really give 5 stars rather than 4. I had to use regular white rice instead of sushi rice. It worked well, but I keep hearing of the importance of the proper rice. I also used regular vinegar and subbed white wine for the mirin. All in all, a yummy success! I can't wait to try again following the recipe exactly!
