Loco Moco with Mushroom Gravy
Serves 2

8 ounces lean ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
mushroom gravy:
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups hot, steamed basmati rice, divided
furikake seasoning
sliced chives

1. Place ground beef, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper into a mixing bowl and mix together. Form 2 even (4 ounce) patties and lightly season each side with salt and pepper.
2. Pour oil into a large skillet and place over medium-high heat.
3. Once skillet is hot, add burger patties and sear for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook burgers until medium doneness, an additional 3 to 4 minutes.
4. Remove patties from the skillet and set aside, loosely covered with foil.
5. For mushroom gravy: Add 2 tablespoons butter to a saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Add garlic and mushrooms and sauté for about 3 minutes or until mushrooms are lightly caramelized. Season with salt and pepper. Melt remaining butter into the mixture, sprinkle with flour and stir together. Lower heat to medium and stir in stock. Continue to stir until no lumps remain and gravy has thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Adjust seasonings. Cover and set aside.
6. In another skillet, add 2 tablespoons butter and place over medium-high heat. Once skillet is hot, add eggs and fry for 3 to 4 minutes or until whites have set and edges are crisp. Remove from heat.
7. To assemble: Divide rice between two plates and top each with a burger patty, followed by a scoop of gravy, a fried egg, and another scoop of gravy. Finish each dish with a sprinkle of furikake seasoning and some sliced chives. Serve.
