Ingredients

  • 2 cups white rice uncooked
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 lb Certified Angus Beef® brand ground beef
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 green onions sliced

Instructions

  1. Rinse the rice under cool water. Place the rinsed rice and 2 cups water in a rice cooker and cook. 
  2. Shape the ground beef into four patties. Season both sides with salt and pepper. 

  3. Heat olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties. Sear for 4 minutes. Flip. Cook for 4 more minutes. Remove the patties and set aside. 

  4. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the flour to the skillet. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring continuously. 

  5. Add 1/2 cup beef broth to the skillet, and stir to combine. 

  6. Add the remaining beef broth and soy sauce. Cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Whisk in butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

  7. In another skillet, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium-high high. Crack the eggs into the pan and fry for 3-4 minutes, until the whites are cooked through. The yolks should remain loose. 

  8. Place a large circle cookie cutter on a plate. Fill with a spoonful of rice. Remove the cookie cutter. 

  9. Place a cooked patty on top of the rice. Spoon on a ladle of gravy. Top with a cooked egg, and garnish with green onions.
