Loco Moco

Teri & Jenny
This Loco Moco recipe is a delicious Hawaiian dish. It consists of white rice, a juicy hamburger patty, a fried egg, and then all topped with a creamy mushroom gravy made from scratch. It's traditionally eaten for breakfast, but it's delicious anytime. A delicious and unique way to dress up ground beef patties.

hamburger patties

  • 8 ounces lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil

mushroom gravy

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter divided
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms stems removed and thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 2/3 cups chicken stock
  • salt and pepper to taste

fried eggs

  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil
  • 2 large eggs

to serve

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked basmati rice
  • 1 tablespoon furikake seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon sliced chives


  • For hamburger patties: 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.
  • Pour oil into a large skillet and place over medium-high heat.
  • 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.
  • Remove patties from the skillet and set aside, loosely covered with foil.
  • 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, about 5 minutes. Adjust seasonings. Cover and set aside.
  • For eggs: In another skillet, add oil and place over medium-high heat. Once skillet is hot, add eggs and fry for 4 to 5 minutes or until whites have set and edges are crisp. Remove from heat.
  • To assemble: Divide rice between two plates and top each with a burger patty, followed by a ladle of gravy, a fried egg, and another ladle of gravy. Finish each dish with a sprinkle of furikake seasoning and sliced chives. Serve.
