- Add the soy sauce, mirin, and brown sugar to the pan. Cook until reduced to half. Take off the heat.
- Lay a sheet of nori on a sushi rolling mat, Spread out a cup of rice evenly over the sheet. Take a spoonful of the reduced sauce from the pan and spread it across at the quarter mark of the sheet closer to you.
- Sprinkle a light layer of furikake on the rice. Lay the hot dog over the same spot as the sauce.
- Carefully roll and tuck the edge closest to you over the hot dog. Repeat until you've reached the other end. Repeat for the rest of the hot dogs.
