Hawaiian-Style Loco Moco Recipe

Hawaiian-Style Loco Moco

Loco Moco is a traditional meal found in many fast food restaurants in Hawai’i, especially local places such as Zippy’s and L&L Hawaiian BBQ. This recipe is really pretty simple, consisting of only 4 essential items: rice, a hamburger patty, an egg, and brown gravy. I was stationed in Hawai’i for 4 years during my time in the Navy, and I had more than my share of Loco Moco. This is definitely my favorite Hawaiian plate lunch. Although it’s much better to get this to go and enjoy it on a beautiful Hawaiian beach, it’s nice to have a little bit of Hawaiiana here in Ohio.
