Someone asked me the other day how we typically eat at home (since we’re cooks ’n stuff).

The reality is that we rarely eat the same thing twice.

Kitchen time is play time, so we like to experiment with new recipes and ingredients.

That said, we do have a few go-tos for those days that we don’t have time to think about what we’re in the mood to make.

One of those is Loco Moco.

A traditional Hawaiian dish, this is always a fan favorite in our house, but multi-tasking is a must to make sure all the components are ready at the same time.

But don’t worry, you got this.

  • 1 egg per person
  • Green onion, thinly sliced
  • Pineapple rings
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Sriracha


Step 1

Cook your rice according to package directions.

Step 2

Make your gravy according to the same.

Step 3

Season your burger patties with salt and pepper.

Grill until cooked to your liking. 

Once your patties are cooked to perfection, set them aside and lightly grill your pineapple rings. Bonus flavor points if there are meat drippings left on your grill or in the pan for this.

Step 4

Season and fry your eggs over easy, making sure the yolks stay nice and runny.

Step 5

Once all the components are ready, pile them up in the following order: Rice. Burger. Egg. Gravy.

Heck, sometimes I put gravy between every layer, because why not? That’s your business.

Step 6

Garnish the whole thing with thinly sliced green onions and a squirt of Sriracha.

Serve alongside grilled pineapple and something green (this is optional, but we like our something green to be a roasted vegetable like broccoli). 

Step 7



This ain’t no ‘one-pot’ meal. Expect to use every pan in the house, and for everything to smell like beef for the next several days, but it’s worth it. I assure you.

Apologies for not breaking down the ‘how’ on every step either. This is very much a weeknight meal, so much of it is made with packaged foods that come with instructions.
