Loco Moco

I know 'Loco Moco' sounds funny to my Filipino subscribers as in the local language, it means "you're kidding me" but loco moco is a Hawaiian dish.  Our local version is burger steak. Loco Moco differs from the local version as it is served with egg but I know one of the local fast food chains also now serves their burger steak with eggs but they sell it for breakfast. Like the Hawaiian version, we also serve this with rice. I know burger patties, rice and egg sound weird together for my foreign readers but still, you gotta try this. 

I watched Guy Fieri cook this dish in his show. That's why I decided to try it.

You need:

Cooked rice

ground beef
salt and pepper
chopped onions
crushed beef cube
1 tablespoon cornstarch
canola oil

cooked sunny side up eggs


1 tablespoon butter
beef cube dissolved in water or beef broth
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon water. 

Let's do this!

Mix all the ingredients for the burgers. Form the patties. Pour some canola oil into a pan. Cook the patties over high heat. Cover the pan to seal in the moisture. Cook until brown on one side then flip. Cook to desired doneness. 

Let's make the gravy. Add the butter to the pan with the drippings. Saute the mushrooms and onions until golden brown. Add the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil and then reduce down for 3 minutes. Add the cornstarch slurry, stirring constantly until thickened. Taste. Season with salt and pepper if needed. 

To serve, place some rice on a plate, top with the patties and sauce. Put the egg on the side. You can also serve this with some chopped tomatoes. Garnish with chopped parsley.
