Loco Moco - Juicy Hamburger Steak

Sunday, December 25, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

Juicy hamburger steak served with steaming white rice and flavorful brown gravy is a popular dish in Japanese fusion restaurants. It is known as "Loco Moco". Because it is a rice dish, many may mistaken it as a Japanese cuisine, in fact LM is actually originated from Hawaii.

Yeah, today I am making a Hawaii dish - Loco Moco!!I have a pack of minced pork seated in the fridge. Since I've ran out of the ready-made gyoza wrap, and I am going to attempt on the homemade LM.

No fancy ingredients required and majority of the ingredients used (dry and wet) are those commonly found in the pantry. Roll your sleeves up and let's get started.

400g ground pork
1 large onion (finely chopped)
6 slices of graham cracker (crushed)
1 egg
1 tbsp soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
cooking oil

Sauce (mushroom gravy)
100g button mushrooms (thinly sliced)
300ml chicken stock
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce or ABC sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Corn starch solution (1tbsp corn starch and 1 tbsp water)


1. Heat up cooking oil in the pan and saute the onion until translucent. Dish out half of the onion for later use.
2. Add in the mushrooms to the pan and saute with the onion.
3. Once mushrooms turn soft, add in the chicken stock, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, pepper and salt.
4. Bring to boil and pour in the corn starch solution to thicken the gravy.

Burger Patties
5. In a bowl, add the minced pork, sauteed onion (set aside earlier), graham cracker crust, egg, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Mix well until everything combine.
6. Shape the mixture into 6 even size patties.
(Tips: Rest the patties in the fridge for 30 min for the shape to set)
7. Pan-fried the patties with some cooking oil over medium heat, for 5 min.
8. Flip over and pan fry another side for 3-5 min till both side turn nicely brown.

Top the burger patties on the steaming white rice. Drizzle generous brown mushroom gravy at the side. Complete the dish with the signature sunny-side-up egg. Voila, there you go the homemade LM! Delish!!
