Binging with Babish: Brock's Onigiri from Pokémon

  • Published: 02 April 2019
  • Okay, it's April 2nd, fun's over. This week, for reals this time, we're making onigiri: the breakfasty-lunchy-snack, ubiquitous in Japan, and virtually unheard of here in the US. As such, some committee of suits saw fit to Americanize their portrayal on Pokémon, and a generation of these United States grew up thinking they were donuts...and the bastards made ten hundred billion dollars. Was it worth it, 4Kids Entertainment? Oh, it was? No yeah you're right.

      I guess they won't taste so bad since they're like close cousins. If you're going to to make this again, try to cook the rice with a pot instead of a pressure cooker, and cooling the rice with a fan or something while you're mixing the vinegar. The onigiri/sushi ball will have a more firm texture, and be less watery. Nice video, anyway.

      So... I've never ever added vinegar for onigiri. It's usually just plain. Vinegar is added specifically for sushi.

                i use a bit of plastic wrap when forming mine, makes it a bit easier and keeps them cleaner; They are also pretty well prepacked for lunch boxes :D
