HAWAIIAN LOCO MOCO
I ate this at a sports bar/cafe on the big island of Hawaii. This is a local dish served many ways, but this version is my favorite. They usually make it with SPAM®. Also you can make this using leftover rice, pre-cooked burgers, and jarred sauce.

- Prepare a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.
- Divide ground chuck into 4 equal portions; form into patties.
- Fry patties in skillet until beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the center, about 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Remove patties to a plate, retaining drippings in the skillet.
- Stir onion and water into the reserved drippings. Reduce heat to low and cook until the onions are slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Stir mushrooms into the onion mixture; cook until mushrooms are cooked through, about 5 minutes more.
- Pour gravy over the onion and mushroom mixture; stir. Cook until the gravy is hot, about 5 minutes. Gently lie patties into the gravy; simmer until reheated through.
- While the patties simmer in gravy, prepare a separate skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Fry eggs in the hot skillet until the white is opaque but the yolk remains runny, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Divide rice between 4 plates. Top each rice portion with a beef patty and top the patties each with an egg. Pour gravy equally over each portion.

- Mix together the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, seasoning salt, garlic powder, and black pepper in a large bowl.
- Start forming it into patties by grabbing a handful of meat and rolling it into a ball. Then press down to flatten it out. Smooth the edges so there isn't any cracks or jagged edges. Patties should come out to at least one inch thick. Try to keep the patties large since it will shrink when fried.
- Heat a pan over medium heat. Fry each side of the patties for about 3-5 minutes or until well done.
- Set each finished patty on a plate lined with paper towel to catch any extra grease.
- Mix together the beef stock, shoyu, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, and cornstarch. Whisk it until the cornstarch has come off of the bottom.
- Using the same pan, melt one tablespoon of the butter to caramelize the onions for about a minute then fry the mushrooms for another minute or two. (It is optional to add the mushrooms and onions. If not, just skip to the next step.)
- Melt the rest of the butter and add in the gravy mix to the pan. Keep stirring the gravy until it begins to thicken and simmer.
- Melt a slice of butter and crack an egg on a frying pan.
- Cook a sunny side up egg. (You can switch it up to your preference) Set aside
- Scoop a generous serving of hot white rice on a plate. Layer it with one hamburger patty then drizzle on the gravy. Top it with the egg and garnish with green onions.
- Serve it hot and enjoy!
- For the rice: Wash the rice under cold running water until the water runs clear. In a medium saucepot over high heat, bring the chicken broth to boil. Add the rice, cover and reduce the heat to low for about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes. (Alternatively, add both the rinsed rice and the chicken broth to a rice cooker and turn the machine on - it will keep the rice warm until ready to serve.) Fluff with a fork and cover. Keep warm until ready for use.
- For the burgers: Mix the ground beef, onions and some salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Form 4 medium patties and set aside.
- Set a large cast-iron pan over high heat. Add a drizzle of canola oil and set the patties in the pan. Cover pan with a lid (or a second pan) to seal in the moisture and ensure juicy patties. Cook until well browned on first side, 3 to 4 minutes. Then remove the lid, flip over, replace the lid and continue cooking to desired doneness, about 3 minutes for medium-rare. Remove the burgers and keep warm.
- For the gravy: Add the butter to the pan with the drippings. Saute the mushrooms and onions until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce, bring to a boil and reduce down for 2 to 3 minutes.
- In a separate bowl, mix the cornstarch with 1 tablespoons water to make a smooth paste. Slowly add into the gravy, stirring constantly until thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and keep warm until ready for use.
- For the eggs: Add some canola oil to a nonstick saute pan over medium heat. Crack in the eggs and cook sunny-side up, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove and keep warm. (You can flip the eggs over-easy if you want them cooked a little more.)
- To serve: Place the cooked rice on a plate, place the burgers on top, then the eggs and finally the gravy. Garnish with parsley and tomato if desired.
CHEF JOHN'S LOCO MOCO
This amazing Hawaiian comfort food classic is made by topping rice with a fried burger, which is then smothered with a rich, brown gravy and finished with a fried egg. Seriously, how did it take until 1949 for someone to think of this combination? We all get hangry sometimes, so whether you're a broke student or an older professional who just wishes you were, this cheap, filling bowl of goodness is the perfect solution. Garnish with green onions.

- Season patties with salt, pepper, and cayenne.
- Whisk beef stock, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, sesame oil, ketchup, sugar, and cornstarch together in a bowl.
- Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patty in the hot skillet until a browned crust forms on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Flip; toss in green onions and cook the other side until both beef and onions are browned, 4 to 5 minutes more. Remove patty and most of the green onions to a plate.
- Pour beef stock mixture into the skillet. Stir, scraping up browned bits from the bottom, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and reserve gravy until needed.
- Melt remaining butter in another skillet over medium heat. Add eggs to the skillet and fry side-by-side until whites are set and yolks are still runny.
- Divide rice between 2 serving bowls. Place patties over the rice, spoon gravy on top, and add the fried eggs.

BIG ISLAND STYLE LOCO MOCO
- 1. Gently mix the hamburger,onions and salt/pepper. Form either 2 big patties or 4 smaller size patties.
- 2. Heat frying pan until very hot.
- 3. Place hamburger patties on the pan/grill and let sear just until juices start appearing on the top. Flip over and cook for a couple more minutes. You will want the burger slightly charred but still tender on the inside.
- 4. Place burgers on the side.
- 1. Pour a little broth into the same pan and incorporate the yumyums, then pour in the rest of the broth.
- 2. Bring to a boil and let reduce for about 3-5 minutes or so, depending on taste, for a more potent gravy.
- 3. Turn down heat to a simmer.
- 4. Add couple dashes of worcestershire sauce.
- 5. In a seperate bowl, mix flour with some water.
- 6. Using a whisk, slowly whisk in the flour/water mixture until gravy is nicely thick & smooth.
- 7. Turn off heat and mix in the butter until well blended.
- Traditionally, the eggs should be sunny-side up. The secret to a good fried egg is to fry the egg slowly on low heat until it's cooked... just don't overcook it! It also helps to have the eggs thawed to room temperature before cooking them.
- Use regular medium grain white rice... stir fry with other ingredients.
- Assembly (bottom -> top):.
- Rice -> Burger -> Egg -> Gravy all over.
- Optional condiments:.
- Shoyu, ketchup, tabasco.

LOCO MOCO MAUI STYLE
I must admit-this looks & sounds disgusting!! My husband "discovered" this while on vacation in Maui & has since learned it is a huge local tradition all over the islands. This is the recipe he found in a local cookbook before we left. I haven't tried it myself-but he LOVE, LOVE, LOVES it & swears I would too if I did. The cookbook described it as a delicious heart-attack on a plate...yikes!
