Hawaii – Loco Moco

image_pdfimage_print

Well we’re down to the last state. We’ve been around the United States trying foods that are important in the culture of each state. And the last state admitted to the union – Hawaii.

I’ve never been to Hawaii but I’ve heard about the food and I’ve read a lot about it. There’s poi (tarro root paste), poke, spam, pineapples and coconuts, and loco moco.

Loco what? My brother’s best friend is from Hawaii and he goes there to visit with family from time to time. He says he looks forward to the loco moco. What exactly is this dish?

It’s rice. A mound of perfectly steamed white rice, topped with a hamburger patty, brown gravy and an egg. Yep. That’s all there is to it and it is amazing!!

Here’s How to Do it:

Get the rice cooker out and cook up a batch of plain old white rice.

Dissolve the bouillon in the broth.

Next, make some brown gravy. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the flour and stir cooking until it starts to brown.

Slowly whisk in the bouillon and broth mixture, stirring until it thickens. Set to the side.

Grill the hamburger patties on a griddle. Add salt and pepper to both sides to taste. When they are near done, add the eggs and fry them to your liking. We like over medium.

Now stack it. Put a scoop of rice in the middle of the plate. Put the hamburger on top of it then smother it in gravy.

Top it all off with an egg and dig in! I promise you’ll want it again. Get in the mood and have some fresh pineapple on the side!
