As many here know I really like Loco Moco. Breakfast lunch Dinner its an all around staple at our house hold. The other night my youngest requested it for dinner but all of the burger patties we had were frozen. I could have thawed them out as there was plenty of time. But I decided to use the sous vide. Set the machine for 125 and in went the frozen patties (vac packed of course) for 2 hours.

Got the rice ready, and when the burgers were done got out the cast iron for a sear. Pretty tasty. don't know that I woud go out of my way to sous vide a burger again but I might.

Nice! I do mine with a hard fried egg, never cared for a runny yoke. When I was stationed in Hawaii I ordered it with spam instead of burger. Both are fantastic though.

The little cafe where we held our morning work meetings had the best Saimin. Loaded with spam and surimi. They also had the best bagel egg sandwhich. The cook really knew how to cook a perfect runny yoke egg. Unfortunately the Cafe didn't make it through the down turn.

Now if you wanted Loco Moco it was the Island style cafe in Waimea. At the time it was three patties, three eggs, and a bucket of gravy and rice. Now I think its only two of each.

They also had the Big Mok which is white rice topped with Spam, Portuguese sausage, link sausage, one egg and brown gravy.

Or the other favorite :

Da Tita Mok
All the works! Fried rice topped with chicken cutlet, hamburger patty, Spam, one egg and brown gravy.
So good!

Its the Hawaiian Breakfast. It is really good. Add some fire water and you're off to a good start in the morning. Speaking of fire water I haven't made a batch in a while.
