I make these for bentos, but I just use soy sauce--no miso or sake. Here's a tip I picked up from lunchinabox.net: Make a bunch, cool a bit, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, place in a freezer bag or container, and freeze. To use, do not thaw first--just microwave (still wrapped) for a few seconds. Otherwise, it will be hard and nasty! But if you microwave it until just soft and warm, then toss it into your bento, it will be lovely!

Mine fell apart when I flipped them... I tried again with sticky sushi-like rice, but those were even less cooperative. Still tasted great though!

Very good and tasty! I made them using only miso and not soya sauce and it was very tasty. I had some trouble making them and then fliping them but the taste was excellent. Next time it will be easier I think. Thanks for posting this wordeful recipe!

Yummy! I ran out of sake, so used water instead. These were awesome! I did have trouble with the first two, since I didn't press them hard enough, but the rest came out perfectly. I also used leftover rice that I reheated :-)

Loved these! Easy and so tasty. Wonderful accompaniment to various Asian-style chicken dishes I made yesterday. Thanks.

I make these all the time - but had not yet seen the miso sauce suggested here - it was a huge hit, thanks!!!
