This is a favorite Hawaiian fast food called Loco Moco. It is the 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 poolside.
This meal is the ultimate indulgence in layers. Cooked rice is topped with a wild pig patty, fried egg, and 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.
