Aloha! Due to a Mun-chies fan request, we are returning to the Facebook game CAFE WORLD's menu from Zynga again! Instead of cooking them in order, I have decided to pick some of the most interesting dishes from the menu instead. 

Loco Moco is a soul food in Hawaii. From what I've read, Loco Moco can be made in many different variations. Essentially, it can be eaten any time of the day. Basically, it consists of a delicious beef patty sitting on a bed of steaming white rice, topped with brown gravy and a sunny side up egg! Sounds simple? Well, lets give it a try!

Here we go! This recipe makes about 5 servings.

- Lean ground beef (l lb)
- 1 medium red onion (peeled and chopped into big chucks)
- 6 medium eggs (1 for mixing with the meat patties, 5 for frying)
- Dried parsley (1 tablespoon)
- Sugar (1 tablespoon)
- Bread crumbs (3 tablespoons)
- Garlic (2 cloves, peeled)
- Cooking oil (2 tablespoons)
- Jasmine white rice (2 cups)
- Beef Broth (1 can)
- Flour (for thickening)
- Worcestershire sauce (1 tablespoon) 
- Salt and pepper (a few pinches)

Step 1: In a food processor, chop red onion and garlic into small bits.
Step 2: In a large bowl, mix meat with 1 egg, onion mixture, dried parsley, sugar and bread crumbs.
Step 3: Knead meat mixture into patties (makes about 5 large patties).
Step 4: Grill the patties.
Step 5: While meat is cooking, prepare the brown gravy. Heat up the beef stock in a pot. Mix flour in a separate bowl with some cold water for thickening. Slowly pour flour liquid into the beef stock while stirring. Add Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside.
Step 6: Pan fried the 5 eggs for the 5 meat patties in some cooking oil.
Step 7: Assemble the layers, rice on the bottom, then beef patty, gravy and fried egg... Yeah, done! Enjoy!


  1. This looks great, not at all like that crappy Hawaiian fast food!

  2. I love all kinds of food served with white rice! In my country (Peru) everybody loves white rice seasoned with garlic. Thank you so much for the recipe, I already did it!
