Loco Moco Recipe

This recipe is perfect for all those looking for a budget friendly, yet very tasty meal! Loco Moco is a staple in Hawaii and a must get every time I’m there. The recipe is based off of 4 servings and is less than $4.00 per serving.


  • 1 pound ground beef – formed into 4 hamburger patties.
  • 4 eggs.
  • 2 cups white rice cooked.
  • ½ medium onion sliced thin.
  • 2 cups beef stock.
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  • ½ tablespoon all-purpose flour.


  • Fry hamburgers in a cast iron pan all the way through. Remove and let rest.
  • In the same cast iron pan, add the onions, sauté until softened.
  • Mix in the flour to coat onions, cook for 2-3 minutes until the raw flour is cooked.
  • Whisk in the beef stock, cook for another 20 minutes until the stock thickens and reduces.
  • Fry the eggs in olive oil on a non-stick pan. I like sunny side up, but you cook to the doneness you prefer.
  • On a plate, add a ¼ of the cooked rice. Place one burger patty on the rice. Spoon the gravy over the patty and top the whole thing with an egg.
  • Garnish and enjoy!
