Living La Vida Loco Moco

22 Jul

loco moco awesomeness

Loco Moco is an artery clogging, cholesterol inducing plate of deliciousness!

Originated in Hawaii, the loco moco consists of rice, egg, hamburger patty and gravy. This dish in my opinion-whether you ask for it or not, is ideal comfort food at it’s best. I mean who doesn’t love food slathered in gravy? The ingredients of loco moco will always be found in my house and perhaps every Filipino household out there (I’m sure of it, I checked). There are numerous variations of loco moco, and as long as you cover it in gravy, I say “KUDOS to you my friend, kudos!”

So in time-honored tradition, I’d like to make MY version of loco moco that my fans love-my fans being my family, who don’t have a choice because it’s what I’m craving at the moment. *thumbs up* This is such a simple dish to make that my chef-in-training 9 year old did most of the work. I’m just taking all the credit because he doesn’t have a blog yet (I’m kidding).


In my house, we prefer ground turkey and I’m too lazy busy to make gravy from scratch so I use good old brown gravy in a packet!





Some people prefer spam over patty which I would’ve used except we had spam the other night, so yeah. I like to cook the eggs sunny-side up so that the yolk can ooze out and mix with the gravy deliciousness.



Ingredients for Loco Moco-serves 5

1 lb ground meat (any preference)

6 eggs

cooked rice

salt and pepper

1 packet of brown gravy

(yep that’s it)


mix 1 egg into ground meat; add salt and pepper to taste; form meat into patties (size is up to you); cook patties until desired doneness, put aside; fry eggs to your preference (sunny side up is best), put aside; make gravy as directed on packet.

To make individual dishes, place cooked rice on your dish first; add a turkey patty or two on top of the rice; gently place a cooked egg above the patty; smother dish with brown gravy. Enjoy the hell out of it!


Don’t Call It A Comeback?

6 Jul

Hello friends! Hope some of you have missed me-if you haven’t, well then you know where to go! Let’s consider this entry an update/apology for not keeping up with my blog. I haven’t given up on CookingMamaLoraine, life just has me by the balls at the moment and any extracurricular activities like date night, girl’s night out and blogging has been put on the back burner. So, sorry…there I said it. I’m beginning to think that I’m lacking inspiration and motivation since I can’t even conjure up what to say at this moment. I have every intention of working on this blog and perhaps doing a little bit more. I can’t really decide, whatevs. So, yeah I’m alive and barely kicking but I can assure you that I’M BACK BITCHES!
