Loco Moco

23 Aug


NOTE: An updated version of this recipe appears in my cookbook, The Ancestral Table.

Loco moco is a Hawaiian dish and popular breakfast meal on the islands. It’s the ultimate breakfast meal prior to a big workday, consisting of rice, a hamburger patty, fried eggs, and brown gravy. Its unique mix of ingredients create a distinct taste that I’ve been missing lately, so I decided to whip one up the other day.

* this recipe makes enough for two loco mocos

You’ll Need:
2 scoops white rice or cauliflower rice
2 precooked hamburger patties
4 eggs
2 cups beef broth or stock
1 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp potato starch

Your first step is to make the brown gravy. Bring the broth/stock to a light boil, adding the black pepper, and let it simmer while you create your thickener. In a small bowl, add the potato starch and a little water, enough to make a milky-looking liquid. Slowly pour it into the broth, stirring as it thickens.

Once the gravy looks good, it’s time to put it all together. Fry up your eggs, leaving the yolks a little gooey. Put one scoop of rice on a plate or in a bowl, add the hamburger, then the eggs, and cover it with a scoop or two of gravy. Repeat the process for the next loco moco, and you’re good to go!

    Can you make a print PDF option for all your recipes for quick saving?

      Hi Helena, all of my recipes for the past six months or so have had a print PDF option, but I haven’t had a chance to go back and make PDFs for all of my old recipes yet! I did just whip up one for this recipe though, which you can now find at the bottom of the post :)
