Loco Moco
  A popular Hawaiian breakfast menu, Loco Moco was invented in 1949 for hungry local boys. In its original form, the dish is a bowl of rice topped with a burger patty and covered with gravy. Nowadays, you can find creative varieties at local restaurants.

Ingredients (serves 4):
To Cook in the Rice Cooker:

  • 2 cups (rice measuring cup) short or medium grain white rice
  • Water to fill to water level 2 for white rice

To Prepare Separately:

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 cup onion, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs for sunny side up or over easy

Brown Gravy:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 quart beef broth
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Garnish (Optional):

  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Tomato slices
1

Measure the rice accurately and place in the inner cooking pan. Rinse rice under water until water clears.

2

Add water by filling up to the water scale marked “2” for “White Rice”. Cook the rice using the “Regular” setting.

3

Make the gravy. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add flour and continually stir for 5 minutes or until the mixture turns golden-brown.

 

4

Whisk in the beef broth, ketchup, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce.

 

5

Keep whisking and bring sauce to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes or until desired thickness is reached, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside and keep warm.

 

6

In a large bowl, mix beef, onion, one egg, panko, salt and pepper.

 

7

Divide in four and make flat oval patties. Heat oil in a pan and grill patties over medium heat for 5 minutes then flip and grill both sides until cooked through.

 

8

Fry eggs sunny side up or over easy.

9

When rice completes cooking, place in serving plates and top with the cooked hamburger patties. Ladle the gravy and top with a fried egg.
