Moe’s Hawaiian Burger Patties are mixed with pineapple, soy sauce, and feta cheese. They are topped with hot pepper cheese slices.
Loco-Moco (Wild Pig, Rice, and Eggs)
Our favorite Hawaiian fast food, after Spam musubi, is Loco Moco. An ultimate comfort food, this meal keeps you going when you have a busy day of snorkeling ahead of you or if you want a simple dinner to eat pool-side.
This meal is the ultimate indulgence in layers. Cooked rice is topped with a wild pig patty, a fried egg, then the whole thing is smothered in gravy. If the ground wild boar you are using already has added fat, the eggs and sour cream can be omitted.
Pair this with some of the best fresh fruit the world has to offer and there you have it, paradise. For a shortcut, pre-seasoned sausage patties can be substituted for the meat patty, and ready-made gravy will save time.

2 cups rice
1 pound ground wild pig
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon mustard
salt and pepper, to taste
4 to 6 whole eggs
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups beef broth
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Cook the rice in rice cooker or follow package directions for microwave or stove top.
In a bowl, mix the pig, egg, breadcrumbs, sour cream, ketchup, soy sauce, mustard, salt, and pepper. Shape into 4 to 6 round patties.
In a preheated skillet, fry the patties to desired doneness.
Fry the eggs over easy or sunny-side-up.
In a medium skillet, melt the butter on medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and whisk until smooth. Lower the heat to medium and slowly add the beef broth. Cook for 5 minutes at a low boil, continually whisking to avoid lumps. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, and add salt and pepper to taste.
Assemble the Loco Moco by plating all four layers: rice, patties, eggs, and gravy. Finish off with a dash of hot pepper sauce for authentic flavor.
