3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

hamburger patties
8 ounces lean ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 tablespoon neutral oil

fried eggs
1 tablespoon neutral oil
2 large eggs

to serve
1 1/2 cups cooked basmati rice
1 tablespoon furikake seasoning
1 tablespoon sliced chives

mushroom gravy
Add 2 tablespoons butter to a saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Add garlic, and mushrooms, and sauté for about 3 minutes or until mushrooms are lightly caramelized. Season with salt and pepper.
Melt the remaining butter into the mixture. Sprinkle with flour and whisk together.
Lower heat to medium and stir in stock. Continue to stir until no lumps remain and the gravy has thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes Season with salt and pepper. Cover and set aside.

hamburger patties
Place ground beef, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper into a mixing bowl and mix.
Form 2 even (4 ounces) patties and lightly season with salt and pepper.
Pour oil into a large skillet and place over medium-high heat.
Once the skillet is hot, add burger patties and sear for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook burgers until medium doneness, an additional 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove patties from the skillet and set aside, loosely covered with foil.

fried eggs
In another skillet, add oil and place over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is hot, add eggs and fry for 3 to 4 minutes or until whites have set and the edges are crisp. Remove from heat.

Divide rice between two plates and top each with a burger patty, followed by a spoonful of gravy, a fried egg, and another spoonful of gravy. Finish each dish with a sprinkle of furikake seasoning and sliced chives. Serve.
