Teriyaki Pork Sushi Rolls

Teriyaki Pork Sushi Rolls

This is a filling futomaki roll flavored with garlic, teriyaki sauce, and mayonnaise. You can eat them as Ehoumaki lucky rolls too!

Ingredients: 4 rolls

Sushi rice
about 3 rice cooker cups of raw rice
Toasted nori seaweed
4 sheets
Imitation crab sticks
12 sticks
Spinach
150g
Teriyaki Pork
Pork belly sliced thinly
150g
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
Sugar
1 tablespoon
Mirin
1 tablespoon
Garlic
1/2 clove
Mayonnaise
to taste
Vegetable oil
as needed
Thick fried omelette
Eggs
3
Sake
1 teaspoon
Sugar
1 teaspoon
Salt
a pinch

Steps

1. Coat a pan with vegetable oil, heat, and saute the pork and garlic. Add soy sauce, sugar, and mirin, and saute until the broth evaporates.
2. Crack an egg into a bowl, add sake, sugar, and salt, and mix thoroughly. Make the thick fried omelette with the mixture, and cut into 1.5 cm sticks (long and thin).
3. Quickly blanch the spinach in salted hot water (not listed), drain in a sieve, rinse with cold water, and squeeze tightly.
4. Spread out a sheet of nori seaweed on a sushi mat, and spread out 1/4 of the sushi rice thinly and evenly on top. Leave about 4 cm of seaweed for the overlap.
5. Lay the egg, crab meat with a little space in between, and spinach at the front of the sushi roll. Squeeze a generous amount of mayonnaise in the space between the imitation crab and egg.
6. Add the teriyaki pork on top of the squeezed mayonnaise, and roll it up.
7. After rolling, wrap the roll in plastic wrap, and let sit for a while. I think it makes it more difficult for the roll to fall apart if you cut it through the plastic wrap.
8. I heard that this tastes great with mustard-mayonnaise as well. That sounds nice! This is a tip from COOKPAD user "Mifu74".

Story Behind this Recipe

Sweet and spicy ingredients go well together with sushi rice, so I made it using teriyaki pork.
