Easy Meat Wrapped Cheese Onigiri Using Kitchen Parchment Paper

This is an award-winning recipe! You just wrap cheese-filled onigiri (rice balls_ with meat, drizzle with sauce, and microwave wrapped in kitchen parchment paper.

Ingredients: 2 people (makes 4 pieces)

Shabushabu pork belly meat
16 slices
Plain cooked rice
400 g
Easy melting cheese
use as much as you like
a small amount
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
◎Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
◎Garlic (grated)
1 clove
Cooking paper
6 30 cmx20 cm pieces


1. Put the ingredients marked with ◎ and the meat into a plastic bag, mix together, and put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
2. Thinly spread 50 grams of rice on plastic wrap, and top with meltable cheese. Wrap both ends like a piece of candy and mold it into oval shapes.
3. Make 4 more rice balls following step 2. You can make these without plastic wrap, but I suggest using it since it is easier and you won't get your hands dirty!
4. Remove plastic wrap from step 3, and wrap the marinated meat length-wise around the rice ball.
5. Cover the remaining rice balls length wise with meat. Use 4 slices of meat per rice ball.
6. Wrap the rice balls from step 5 in parchment paper like candy. After wrapping them, place them facing up on a microwave-safe dish and microwave at 600W for 8 minutes.
