Makes 20 musubi

4 cups uncooked Japanese rice
water to cook rice (about 4 cups)
5 sheets of sushi nori (seaweed in big squares)
1 can of Spam or Spam lite
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup rice wine (mirin or aji-mirin)

Cook rice in rice cooker for best results, allow approximately
20-25min. If no rice cooker is available pour rice and water into
a large saucepan that is made from heavy material. Heat water and
rice until boiling then immediately turn down and simmer for
approxiamately 20-25 min. or until soft. 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 a piece of waxed paper that is the same
size as the sushi nori. Then place sushi nori inside so that both
edges stick straight up. Spread cooked rice across bottom of musubi
maker, on top of nori. 1/4 in. high is fine. 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. About 1/4 in high. 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, but leave wax paper for next use. Cut each log into four

Reviewer: Usako Yamakawa from Japan
To start off, let me make a correction to this recipe. This person said "1/4 cup rice wine (mirin or aji-mirin)" Rice wine is "sake". Sweet rice wine is "mirin". Remembering how the musubi that I tasted when I tried it a while back, I guessed it would be mirin and not sake. So I went with that, and it came out wonderful!! I've been looking for spam musubi recipe for a while and this is the one that I've been looking for in particular. I gave a 3 for it's visual appearance because we don't have a musubi mold here. I'm sure it would look better with a mold, but I used plastic wrap instead to mold it. We use plastic wrap here a lot to mold stuff like onigiri, so it wasn't too bad. Another thing I did was that I did not fry the Spam. I don't think you're supposed to fry it actually, but kind of cook it a little bit with the sauce (maybe for 2-3 minuites). Also I cooked the sauce and boiled it a little bit and stirred it arround until the sauce became a little thicker. But I'm not sure since Spam Musubi is a Japanese-Hawaiian recipe..
