AT A GLANCE
A burger but not as we know it, loco moco is a classic Hawaiian lunch dish. Traditionally the burger patty crowns a mountain of rice, with plenty of rich gravy and a fried egg, but variations include teriyaki chicken, Spam, prawns and bacon. We've lightened ours up a little by subbing a tangy sesame dressing for the gravy, and added a crunchy slaw for texture.
|01||Combine pork, panko crumbs, spring onion and garlic in a bowl, season to taste and mix well with your hands. Mix in tamari and sesame seeds, divide evenly into 4 and shape into 1cm-thick patties. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to rest.|
|02||For sesame dressing, shake ingredients in a jar to combine and season to taste.|
|03||For pineapple slaw, combine ingredients in a bowl, drizzle with a little sesame dressing and toss lightly to combine.|
|04||Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add pork burger patties and fry, turning once, until browned and cooked through (2-3 minutes each side). Wipe out pan with paper towels, add another splash of oil and heat over medium-high heat, then fry eggs until cooked to your liking (3-4 minutes for soft yolks).|
|05||Serve patties on top of steamed rice, top with fried eggs and pineapple slaw, drizzle with sesame dressing, scatter with sesame seeds, spring onion and coriander, and serve with lime.|
