Everybody's Favourite Roly Poly Meat-Wrapped Onigiri Rice Balls

I added some vegetables into my kids' beloved meat-wrapped onigiri.

Ingredients

Hot cooked white rice
2 bowls (300 g)
Shredded cabbage
50 g
Thinly sliced pork
approx. 200 g
Roasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon
Mirin
2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons

Steps

1. Mix the shredded cabbage and sesame seeds with the rice.
2. Roll the rice into bite-sized balls.
3. Wrap the pork all around the rice balls.
4. Cook the rice balls in a frying pan, turning them over and rotating occasionally. Once evenly cooked, pour in a mixture of soy sauce and mirin and shake the pan to mix the sauce and the meat together thoroughly.
