call it whatever you want to, my picky family chomped it down and asked for more! Made it with slow cooker adobo chicken and quick sesame green beans as per menu suggestion. Definitely what we call a 'do-over'! Thanks!

To make decent sushi rice, you need to use rice vinegar. They use it in sushi restaurants, and the flavor of the sushi is so much improved by its use.

I did not care for this recipe.

While cooking it smelled very 'seaweedy', but when done it was very good.

I think this needs rice vinegar, and no sugar. Try the perfect sushi rice, or you can buy sushi rice powder at many Japanese grocery stores for quick fixes.

This is not sushi rice... I eat sushi a minimum of once a week and this tastes nothing like what I have had at many sushi places. This needs the rice wine vinegar and use nishiki rice!
