mr. gold takes a journey into SPAM
cocktail SPAM musubi
cooked short-grained white rice
one can of luncheon meat (guess)
furikake or nori seaweed sheets
1/4 cup each of water, soy sauce, sugar, and mirin
1. place the water, soy sauce, sugar, and mirin in a shallow pan over medium low heat, allowing the sugar to dissolve. bring it to a simmer, and allow the sauce to reduce.
2. cut the luncheon meat into 1/4" inch slabs, and dip into the sauce, coating on both sides. remove the sauce from the pan, and brown the luncheon meat.
3. place the cooked rice into a ringed mold, cookie cutter or small can and tamp down lightly but firmly. you want the rice to hold together, but you don't want to smoosh it. sprinkle the rice with furikake, if you have it. unmold.
4. cut the browned luncheon meat with the same mold or cutter used for the rice. lay the cut meat on the rice, and brush some of the simmered sauce on top. if you are using nori, cut a square of nori to fit the top, and add as garnish.
