long grain white rice
1/2 (12 ounce) container
Spam™ sliced into 1/4 inch thick slices
1 (10.5 ounce) can
brown gravy, heated
This is tasty, but not the way I have always had it. This is the Spam loco, but if you just order loco moco, it's usually hamburger. Originally, you cook the short grained sticky/sweet/sushi type (Calrose) rice by rinsing and then soaking it in water, then cook cook it according to package directions. Top that fresh, hot, rice with a salisbury steak or grilled hamburger patty. Then top the patty with rich brown gravy. Then top everything with an over easy fried egg. MMMMMmmmm.
This is much better with hamburger patties instead of spam. More traditional as well.
I made this to mimic the more traditional recipe that we had on our trip to Hawaii by using a hamburger patty (seasoned with worchestire and pepper) instead of spam. I also made my own brown gravy by using the hamburger drippings, vegetable broth and corn starch. Delicious.
I saw this recipe mentioned on the Recipe Buzz yesterday and just HAD to try it. It's so good!! I don't care for scrambled eggs, so I cooked mine over medium instead. Also, I used the brown gravy in a packet instead of the canned gravy, because it's basically the same thing, but less expensive. This won't be a regular breakfast item because of the high level of fat, cholesterol, and sodium, but it's definitely going to be a once-in-a-while treat!
I agree with other reviewers, this should be made with hamburger patties. This makes a great, easy, quick dinner too.....!!
I also make it with ground beef patties, or with cubed steak, and I always make my own brown gravy... Just use lean ground beef, do not drain, stir in enough beef stock to cover, add a few tablespoons of flour mixed with 1/4 cup of beef stock, (And sweet rice flour for extra thickening, if you have it!) and reduce to make a wonderful homemade gravy! Also, I make it with eggs over easy. Runny Yolky Goodness!
This recipe is easy to make and simple. Not the greatest. If you're looking for an easy spam locomoco dish and don't know where to start, this recipe will suffice. However, if you are looking for a more traditional local Hawaiian style hamburger locomoco, you picked the wrong recipe.
This is really good with sausage as well, not link sausage but the kind you make in to patties and fry. Use whatever kind you like, but just regular sausage is really good.
