For Beef Patty
- 1.5 lbs ground beef
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 Tbsp oil
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 8oz mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cups beef stock
- 1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
- 1 Tbsp soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch
- 2 Tbsp water
- 1 cup uncooked rice
- 2 Tbsp oil
- 4-8 eggs
- 2-3 chopped scallions, for garnish
- 2 Tbsp chopped parsley, for garnish
- Cook the rice according to the instructions on the package.
- Mix salt, pepper, garlic powder and worcestershire sauce into the ground beef and make 4 large patties, or 6 regular sized patties. We recommend making flatter and larger sized patties, as they would shrink while cooking.
- Heat oil in a skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium high heat and cook the patties until browned to your liking on both sides and the internal temperature reaches 160°F. Plate them out.
- In the same pan, add in a little more oil, if required, and sauté chopped onions till golden brown. Stir in sliced mushrooms and sauté till soft.
- Add in beef stock along with worcestershire sauce and soy sauce and cook for 5 minutes.
- Thicken the sauce with cornstarch slurry. Mix 1 Tbsp cornstarch with 2 Tbsp water and slowly stir it into the gravy. Stir till the gravy thickens up. Remove from heat.
- Fry the sunny side eggs to doneness you like. We like the egg whites cooked with the yolk still little runny.
- Plate Loco Moco in a bowl or plate by placing some rice, followed by the burger patty on top. Pour gravy all over the burger patty. Place the egg on top (you can serve it with one or two eggs per portion) and garnish with chopped scallions and parsley.
- Let us know which recipes you try, I love hearing from you!
