How to Make It

1. Step
Add the sushi rice to a fine-mesh sieve and rinse under cold water until the water runs clear.
2. Step
Add the rice and 3 cups of water to a rice cooker. Cook according to the manufacturer's instructions. Once the rice has finished cooking, let cool until safe to handle.
3. Step
Meanwhile, add the ground beef, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, the brown sugar, garlic, green onions, 2 teaspoons sesame oil, and black pepper to a medium bowl and mix well to combine. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes, or until the rice has cooled.
4. Step
Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the ground beef mixture and cook until the meat is browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
5. Step
In a large bowl, combine the cooked rice, furikake, remaining ½ tablespoon soy sauce, remaining ½ teaspoon sesame oil, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt and mix until well combined.
6. Step
Add the cooked ground beef to the rice mixture and gently stir until evenly incorporated. Season with more salt to taste.
7. Step
Shape the rice balls: Scoop ¼ cup of the rice mixture into your hands and roll into a ball. Repeat with the remaining rice mixture.
8. Step
Garnish the rice balls with sesame seeds and furikake.
9. Step
Enjoy!
