Loco Moco is the easiest way to bring Hawaii into your home, no matter where it is.
Total Time:40 minutes
4 servings white rice
1pound ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons green onions, the white parts only, finely sliced (or scissored)
1 tablespoon oil
1 to 2 tablespoons flour
1 to 1-1/2 cups beef stock
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon butter
Green onions, the green parts, thinly sliced (or scissored)
In a mixing bowl, combine beef, seasonings, soy sauce, and onions. Work quickly with your hands and try not to handle it excessively.
Form into four patties.
Add oil to a large skillet and heat to medium high. Cook patties about 4 minutes a side or to desired doneness. Just make sure you get some good browning on the outside.
As your meat is cooking up, make sure your rice is ready to go. Divide your rice between four plates or bowls.
Place a hamburger steak atop each mound of rice so that the juices will soak into the rice. Don't waste the flavor.
Reduce heat to medium low on the remaining fat and delicious bits in your skillet. Sprinkle flour over the fat, just enough to absorb the fat and create a paste. Cook for a few minutes until the flour mixture turns brown.
Add stock about a quarter cup at a time, stirring well to remove lumps. Also make sure you scrape up any bits off the bottom of the pan. They are full of flavor. Keep adding liquid until you get your favorite consistency and season to taste.
Spoon your gravy generously over your hamburger steaks and rice.
Add butter to a nonstick skillet and melt over medium low heat.
Crack you eggs into the pan and season with salt and pepper if desired. Cook slowly until whites are just set for over sunny side up eggs, or give them a quick flip, just 15 seconds on the other side, for over easy eggs.
Place on egg with its gorgeously runny yolk, on top of each gravy covered hamburger steak, and dig in.
