Prepare the rice. Cook the rice according to the package’s instructions. Fluff with a fork when done and keep it warm.
Prepare the hamburger patties. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef with salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder and red pepper flakes. Mix well.
Divide the meat into four equal portions and shape them into hamburger patties.
Heat a skillet or pan over medium-high heat. Add the hamburger patties and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
Prepare the mushroom gravy. In the same pan, add the vegetable oil. If there's excess grease from the patties, you may want to drain some. Add the flour to the pan and whisk it into the oil to create a roux. Cook for a minute or two until it turns golden.
Gradually whisk in the beef or chicken broth, making sure to break up any lumps. Cook and whisk until the gravy thickens. Season with salt and pepper to taste
Fry the eggs. In another pan, fry the eggs to your liking, typically sunny-side-up or with a slightly runny yolk.
Assemble the loco moco. Place a scoop of rice on each plate. Top the rice with a hamburger patty. Pour a generous amount of gravy over the patty and rice. Top with the sautéed mushrooms, onions, or crispy bacon, if using. Add a fried egg on top. Garnish with sliced scallions or green onions. Serve and enjoy!
