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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

The omission of rice vinegar is a killer. It makes it taste nothing like true sushi rice. Sorry this is just not good. Read More
