a LOCO MOCO!!!! heart-stopping goodness. how appropriate!
i am behind on posting stuff, but i was really excited about making loco mocos today so i am posting the deliciousness now.
i’ve been meaning to make this for a while since after winter break cameron got a hamburger recipe from his mom, and we found a gravy recipe online.
from better homes cookbook
1 beaten egg
2 tbl milk or water
3/4 cup soft bread crumbs (1 slice) or 1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
2 tbl chopped onion or 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tbl prepared mustard or 1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 clove garlic, minced, of 1/8 tsp garlic powder (optional)
1 lb. ground beef, ground pork, ground veal, or ground lamb
1. in a mixing bowl combine egg and milk or water. stir in bread crumbs; onion; mustard; garlic, if desired. 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper.
2. add meat, mix well. shape meat mixture into 4 3/4-inch thick or 6 1/2-inch thick patties.
3. place patties on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. broil 3-4 inches from heat for 15-18 minutes for 3/4-inch patties (10-12 minutes for 1/2-inch patties) or until no pink remains. turn once. serves 4-6.
comments: we used ground sirloin (cameron’s mom told us to), and i put extra onions. yum. really easy, but very tasty.
from big island grinds
1 can good beef broth
flour for thickening
dash of worcestershire sauce
1 tbl butter
1. Pour a little broth into the same pan and incorporate the yumyums, then pour in the rest of the broth.
2. Bring to a boil and let reduce for about 3-5 minutes or so, depending on taste, for a more potent gravy.
3. Turn down heat to a simmer.
4. Add couple dashes of worcestershire sauce.
5. In a seperate bowl, mix flour with some water.
6. Using a whisk, slowly whisk in the flour/water mixture until gravy is nicely thick & smooth.
7. Turn off heat and mix in the butter until well blended.
comments: the reason i used this recipe is because i trust this man james. if you read his blog, he is a loco moco connoisseur. he even has a whole rating system for loco mocos! this gravy was also really easy and fast, but delicious.
first, a nice layer of rice
then the egg (with yolk intact and runny)
mmm, that is truly delicious stuff. and the egg was nice and runny
