The first time I had Loco Moco was when I went to Hawaii with my family, years ago. I initially ordered it because I liked the name of the dish as well as the idea of a hamburger patty over rice. I ended up totally falling in love with this ‘stick to your ribs’ dish.

What is Loco Moco?

Loco Moco is a local Hawaiian comfort food dish consisting of steamed rice topped with a hamburger patty, fried egg and finished with gravy.

Origins of Loco Moco

The origins of the dish is up for debate, but most can agree that it was invented in 1949 at either the Lincoln Grill restaurant, or Cafe 100, both in Hilo, Hawaii. The story goes that the dish was created for local teens that had come in for breakfast. They requested something unique from a typical sandwich and not as time consuming as asian food to prepare.

Why is it called Loco Moco?

Another question asked a lot is “What does Loco Moco mean?” The name of the dish came from the nickname of one of the teens ‘Loco’ and ‘Moco’ was simply added because it sounded good together. It became a popular staple of the restaurant and slowly spread throughout the islands.

How to make Loco Moco Gravy from scratch

Making this creamy Mushroom gravy for Loco Moco is really simple:

  1. Melt some butter in a saucepan and saute garlic and mushrooms. Once mushrooms have caramelized, melt more butter into the mixture.
  2. Add flour and whisk together until no lumps remain. Stir in stock and continue to stir together until gravy has thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper.

How to make Loco Moco

  1. Hamburger patties: Mix seasonings into ground beef and form into two patties. Cook the patties in a skillet until desired doneness.
  2. Fried Egg: Melt butter in a skillet and crack eggs over melted butter. Fry eggs until edges are crisp, whites have set, but the yolk is runny.
  3. Assemble: Place rice in the bottom of two bowls or plates. Top rice with hamburger patties followed by a ladle of gravy. Top gravy with fried eggs and top with more gravy. Sprinkle Loco Moco with furikake and sliced chives
  4. Eat!

Variations

  • Ground turkey can be used in place of the ground beef to make turkey patties
  • Slices of spam can be fried up and served in place of the hamburger patties as well
  • Caramelized onions can take the place of the mushrooms for a caramelized onion gravy
  • Brown rice can be swapped in for the white rice
  • Green onions can be used instead of chives, to finish the dish, or both can be omitted altogether

Our version uses basmati rice because I love the fragrant rice, but you can use a more traditional steamed white rice. We also top our version with furikake seasoning because I love the umami flavor it adds to the dish, but you can easily omit it for an equally delicious Loco Moco with Mushroom Gravy recipe! If you love Hawaiian comfort food as much as I do our Hawaiian Style Macaroni Salad is another really delicious recipe I highly recommend! If you just love anything with a fried egg, our version for Kimchi Fried Rice is also great! Enjoy! xx, Jenny

Ingredients

hamburger patties

  • 8 ounces lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

mushroom gravy

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper to taste

fried eggs

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs

to serve

  • 1 ½ cups cooked basmati rice
  • 1 tablespoon furikake seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon sliced chives

Instructions

  • For hamburger patties: Place ground beef, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper into a mixing bowl and mix together. Form 2 even (4 ounce) patties and lightly season each side with salt and pepper.
  • Pour oil into a large skillet and place over medium-high heat.
  • Once skillet is hot, add burger patties and sear for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook burgers until medium doneness, an additional 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Remove patties from the skillet and set aside, loosely covered with foil.
  • For mushroom gravy: Add 2 tablespoons butter to a saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Add garlic and mushrooms and sauté for about 3 minutes or until mushrooms are lightly caramelized. Season with salt and pepper. Melt remaining butter into the mixture, sprinkle with flour and stir together. Lower heat to medium and stir in stock. Continue to stir until no lumps remain and gravy has thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes. Adjust seasonings. Cover and set aside.
  • For eggs: In another skillet, add 2 tablespoons butter and place over medium-high heat. Once skillet is hot, add eggs and fry for 4 to 5 minutes or until whites have set and edges are crisp. Remove from heat.
  • To assemble: Divide rice between two plates and top each with a burger patty, followed by a ladle of gravy, a fried egg, and another ladle of gravy. Finish each dish with a sprinkle of furikake seasoning and sliced chives. Serve.
