Looking for a quick easy meal that takes minutes to make? This is a recipe/ guide you should keep in your back pocket. I listed the amounts I used, but with cooking, use make it taste how you want it to taste.
My mother in-law made a dish they called hamburger gravy. I love the dish and my in-laws including my wife do not like it. One day, my wife proclaims, this kind of tastes like hamburger gravy and if you add an egg it's like a loco moco. She's right.
This hamburger gravy, I don't remember my mom making it, but I served it through my childhood.
This is my take on this dish.
E ai ka kou (let's eat)!!!
1 box Japanese Curry, Vermont Brand, 3.2 ounces
1 lb Ground Beef
1 each Onion, small diced
3 each Medium Carrots, small diced
1 tsp Minced Ginger
1 tsp Minced Garlic
1/2 cup Peas, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup Corn, fresh, frozen or canned
2 cups Water
3 tbsp Ketchup
2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 tbsp Shoyu
Heat a saute pan over medium heat, with oil.
Make 3 patties with the hamburger (this will help to sear the burger to get that nice caramelized flavor).
When the pan is hot, add the patties. Do not season with salt or pepper. Sear the meat then flip over and do the same.
When the patties are seared on both sides add in the onions, carrots and ginger.
Stir the mixture and break up the patties. It will not break down into very small.
When the carrots are soft add the garlic, keep stirring, until the garlic is perfumed.
Add the curry paste and water. Turn the heat up. Bring to a boil and return to a simmer.
Add in the ketchup, worcestershire sauce and shoyu. Stir to blend well.
Add in the peas and corn.
Cook until everything is hot.
Adjust seasoning to your taste.
Enjoy over a bowl of rice and topped with a fried egg.
