Loco Moco is a popular traditional Hawaiian fast food dish. There are a ton of different variations but the essentials consists of rice, a hamburger patty, fried eggs and gravy. Lots and lots of gravy. If you know me at all, you know that one of my all time favorite things to put over food is gravy. White gravy or brown gravy, I love them all. I don’t discriminate.
This is my version:
Before you get everything going, you should get the rice cooking. I used 1 1/2 cups of medium grain rice. Next, I started off with some 85/15 ground beef. You can do 80/20 if you like or even 70/30 if you’re a savage.
Mix in some fresh minced garlic, salt and pepper.
Form into little patties like so.
Make the girl caramelize some onions.
While the meat and onions are cooking, you can prep the gravy and fried eggies.
This gravy consisted of beef broth, flour, 1 tablespoon butter, salt and a splash of worcestershire sauce
If you want to be extra fancy, you can cook up some portobello mushrooms and some pineapple rings. We are fancy people so these were a must.
When you’re ready to eat, cut the yolk and let it ooze out over everything. The egg really brings it all together into one harmonious masterpiece.
This is what Selma looked like immediately afterwards. Job well done.
She still loves me. She told me so last night.
