Steak Loco Moco

This is a twist on the Hawaiian Classic, Loco Moco. Instead of a ground beef patty, we are using a massive ribeye steak for a huge boost in flavor!

  • 1.5 cups Sliced Sweet Onions
  • 1 cup Sliced Mushrooms
  • 1 cup Beef Broth
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter
  • 2 tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • 1.5 tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1.5 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp FYR BLK Hot Sauce
  • 1.25 tsp Worcestershire Sauce


  • White Rice
  • Fried Egg
  • Sliced Scallions
  • Sesame Seeds


  • Slather the steak with a neutral oil and season with my Bourbon Prime Rub all over. Set to the side till ready to cook.
  • Preheat the fire to medium-high temperature about 375 degrees F for direct grilling.
  • Next, add your steak to the grill to cook until 120 degrees F internal (about 5-9 minutes per side). Once the steak is done cooking, pull it off and let rest for 10 minutes. Keep warm until ready to serve.
  • Add a large skillet to a medium heat fire (about 325 degrees F) along with oil, sliced onions, sliced mushrooms, and minced garlic. Cook until well browned and slightly caramelized (about 20 minutes).
  • Next, add your flour and stir around to coat all the veggies, then add your butter and let it melt. Stir until the sauce has slightly thickened, then add the rest of your ingredients to the skillet. Stir and let simmer until thickened (about 4-8 minutes). Pull off and keep warm for serving.
  • Fry up your egg to your preferred doneness then begin serving. Slice your ribeye and add some white rice to a plate along with the steak. Top everything with some gravy, sliced scallions and sesame seeds. Add the egg on top of the rice, serve and enjoy!



Why Sticky rice is best for Steak Moco Loco
Long-grain rice is non-sticky and a good choice for pilafs and stir-fries. Short-grain rice, aka sticky rice or sushi rice, works best in any Moco Loco recipe for how well it holds together in a tasty bite packed with steak, egg, and brown gravy. A rice cooker is a great investment, btw, for perfectly cooked rice without overthinking the instructions.
