Teriyaki Pork Rice Burger

I have been wanting to make this for a long time, finally tonight I can tick it off from my “to cook” list.  When my son saw this, he gives me a funny look on his face, but after taking a bite, he ask whether can he have another one? When my husband came back, he ask me why is this thing look so weird? But he say is yum after eating it too! I guess is a success isn’t it?

  1. Looks great, and thanks for the sushi vinegar recipe. I always am lazy and buy bottles or ready made, but I know it’s so easy to make it yourself, just need to have the right quantities/balance!
