How to Make Pork Loco Moco With Mushroom Gravy: A Hawaiian-Inspired Dish

Loco moco is considered to be a classic Hawaiian dish. It originated in Hilo, Hawaii, when a group of teenagers asked a restaurant owner for a budget meal with rice. Nowadays, the dish has many different variations, but the original toppings are the burger steak (or burger patty), gravy, and fried egg. In this version of loco moco, I used my homemade pork burger patties with breadcrumbs. There are absolutely no preservatives!

Hi Liz,

Yes, it was very tasty. Satisfyig as well since the burger patty was quite huge.

Hello Eric,

Indeed delicious and healthy. Healthy in a sense that since all ingredients are homemade, I was able to eliminate any preservatives in my dish.

Hi Pamela,

It's really simple. You can buy pre-made ingredients in the market if you prefer. But of course, I would suggest to make it at home so you can avoid any added preservatives.
