- 1-1 ½ pounds ground beef
- Half a dozen eggs
- 6-8 cups Cooked white rice
- ½ cup butter
- ½ cup flour
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- ¼ cup ketchup
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 quart beef broth
- Salt and pepper to taste
Start it out by making the gravy. This is just your traditional basic brown gravy.
In a sauce pan, melt the butter over a medium-low heat.
Next, add the flour and let it cook while you continually stir the sauce. Do this for approx 5 minutes, until the mixture is a golden brown.
Now, add the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds or so. Whisk in the beef broth and the rest of the ingredients minus the salt and pepper.
Bring this to a bowl and then reduce the heat to a low simmer for approx 20 minutes. You will want to be very attentive with the gravy and stir frequently.
Lastly, add the salt and pepper to taste.
Ok, now for the actual Loco Moco. Take your ground beef and form into nice sized patties. Don’t make them too thick. A nice thin and fairly large round patty works best.
Fry the patties in a fry pan to your preferred degree of doneness. Once the patties are done, place them on a plate and set aside.
Now, fry the eggs sunny side up or over easy in the same frying pan as the patties and in the drippings of the patties.
Now for the construction. On a plate, put a generous bed of cooked white rice, the beef patty, a generous ladle of brown gravy and top with the fried eggs. This is a Loco Moco. It can be served with your favorite hot sauce, soy sauce or Ketchup.
