Loco Moco

A recipe for Hawaiian comfort food.

Recipe adapted from No Recipes.

Ingredients for 2 servings: 1/2 lb ground beef, 1/3 cup panko, 1 tsp Worchestershire sauce, 1 tsp oyster sauce, black pepper, 4-5 sliced button mushrooms, 2 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp all purpose flour, 1 cup beef or chicken stock, 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, 2 eggs

1. Mix the ground beef with pepper, panko, Worchestershire sauce, and oyster sauce.  Form into 3/4″ thick patties.

2. Heat oil in a pan and cook the patties until browned on both sides.  Set aside.

3.  Add some additional oil if necessary, and saute the mushrooms until browned.  Add in the butter and flour to make a light brown roux.

4.  Remove pan from heat and whisk in the broth and soy sauce.  Set back over the heat until the gravy bubbles slightly.

5.  Fry the eggs.

6. Set up the dish by placing the beef onto a bed of rice.  Top with fried shallots and/or fried garlic.  Add an egg on top and pour the gravy.

Weekend

Some late night and early morning kitchen creations over the weekend…

8:30 A.M: Breakfast Naan Pizza

Use the same naan recipe as last week, top with with tomato sauce, chopped cooked bacon, shredded mozarella, and carefully crack an egg on top.  Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the yolk is set.  Top with chopped cilantro and cracked black pepper.  Best served with Sriracha Maple Syrup (equal parts sriracha sauce and maple syrup).

7 P.M: Kimchi Beef Dumplings

Mix 1 lb of ground beef with 1 1/2 cups chopped kimchi.  Mold into dumpling skins and seal.  Boil or steam to cook and serve with your favorite dumpling dipping sauce.

1 A.M: Cheese-Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers

Slice jalapeño peppers in half lengthwise and gut the insides.  Stuff with shredded mozzarella cheese and close the halves together; using toothpicks helps.  Make a batter mix of beaten eggs, black pepper, salt, and herb seasoning.  Dip the jalapeños first in flour, then in the egg mixture, and finally the breadcrumbs. 

Fry in hot oil until golden brown.  Pair with your hot sauce of choice.

Easy Comfort

This might be the most no-brainer meal on this blog as of yet.  I am always looking for recipes that can be made within 15 minutes, because that is all the energy I have left at the end of a long work day.

Recipe adapted from Ochikeron.

Ingredients: 1/2 potato, 1 serving of poultry of choice (shaved), 1 tbsp brown sugar, 2 tbsp soy sauce, pinch of salt.

1. Cut the potato into 3/4 inch wide slices and grate them.  You should end up with about a 1/2 cup worth of grated potato.

2. If you are unable to find already shaved meat at the grocery store, you will have to slice the meat into thin pieces.  I bought the beef pre-sliced at Trader Joe’s.

3. Heat some oil in a pan and cook the meat until it is no longer pink.  Add around 3/4 cup of water and simmer for 2-3 minutes.

4. Stir in the brown sugar, soy sauce, and salt until fully mixed with the meat.

5.  Add grated potato and cook for another 2 minutes.
