Beef, chives & cheddar

Beef, chives & cheddar

For: 10 onigiris


  • 1 shallot
  • 200g minced beef
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1.5 tbsp soy sauce
  • a few drops of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Chives
  • Cheddar cheese
  • For cooking and glazing the onigiri: olive oil and soy sauce


  • Finely chop the shallot and sweat it in a pan with olive oil, then add the beef and grill it over high heat.
  • Add the ketchup, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Let it caramelize while stirring, then remove from heat.
  • Add this mixture to the rice, along with chopped chives, and mix gently.

Assembling the Onigiri:

  • In a mold previously soaked in water, add a spoonful of the mixed rice, ensuring to create a well.
  • Add the cheddar cheese mixture into the center of the onigiri.
  • Then, add another spoonful of rice, close the mold, exerting light pressure, and unmold.

Cooking and Glazing:

  • In a hot pan with olive oil, grill the onigiri over medium heat.
  • Once golden, apply soy sauce using a brush, and flip again to color both sides of the onigiri.
  • To avoid breaking the onigiri when handling it, use a spatula and lift it gently.


Enjoy immediately while hot to enjoy the melted cheese!

You can also enjoy this onigiri recipe without cheese and without grilling it—it's delicious.
