Hawaiian Loco Moco

Hawaiian Loco Moco


"I ate this at a sports bar/cafe on the big island of Hawaii. This is a local dish served many ways, but this version is my favorite. They usually make it with SPAM®. Also you can make this using leftover rice, pre-cooked burgers, and jarred sauce."

  • Ready In

  1. Prepare a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.
  2. Divide ground chuck into 4 equal portions; form into patties.
  3. Fry patties in skillet until beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the center, about 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Remove patties to a plate, retaining drippings in the skillet.
  4. Stir onion and water into the reserved drippings. Reduce heat to low and cook until the onions are slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Stir mushrooms into the onion mixture; cook until mushrooms are cooked through, about 5 minutes more.
  5. Pour gravy over the onion and mushroom mixture; stir. Cook until the gravy is hot, about 5 minutes. Gently lie patties into the gravy; simmer until reheated through.
  6. While the patties simmer in gravy, prepare a separate skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Fry eggs in the hot skillet until the white is opaque but the yolk remains runny, 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Divide rice between 4 plates. Top each rice portion with a beef patty and top the patties each with an egg. Pour gravy equally over each portion.



I was looking for a new way to use spam( a good way to stretch the food budget). This will definitely be a keeper! I did use a can of low fat spam cut into 8 slices. This took a little less time...
