This is tasty, but not the way I have always had it. This is the Spam loco, but if you just order loco moco, it's usually hamburger. Originally, you cook the short grained sticky/sweet/sushi type (Calrose) rice by rinsing and then soaking it in water, then cook cook it according to package directions. Top that fresh, hot, rice with a salisbury steak or grilled hamburger patty. Then top the patty with rich brown gravy. Then top everything with an over easy fried egg. MMMMMmmmm.


I made this to mimic the more traditional recipe that we had on our trip to Hawaii by using a hamburger patty (seasoned with worchestire and pepper) instead of spam. I also made my own brown gravy by using the hamburger drippings, vegetable broth and corn starch. Delicious.


I saw this recipe mentioned on the Recipe Buzz yesterday and just HAD to try it. It's so good!! I don't care for scrambled eggs, so I cooked mine over medium instead. Also, I used the brown gravy in a packet instead of the canned gravy, because it's basically the same thing, but less expensive. This won't be a regular breakfast item because of the high level of fat, cholesterol, and sodium, but it's definitely going to be a once-in-a-while treat!
