Joe's Special (Little Joe's)
When other life matters are more important than what I fix for supper, I like to have a few recipes in my card file that are quick to fix, nutritious, and with ingredients I can easily keep on hand. Joe's Special, a delicious dish from San Fransisco, fits that need beautifully.
- 3 Tbsp oil
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 lb fresh spinach, blanched, drained, & chopped OR 1 16 oz bag frozen spinach, cooked and drained
- Salt to taste
- Tabasco to taste (optional)
- 4 eggs, beaten
- Parmesan or Cheddar cheese
Heat the oil in a large skillet, add the onion, and cook over medium heat until the onion is soft. Add mushrooms and cook until the mushroom turn soft.
Add the beef, mixing with the veggies and breaking it up into small bits with a fork, cooking until the redness is gone. Drain any grease.
Add the spinach and mix well. Stir and cook for about 3 minutes, then salt to taste.
Mix a dash of Tabasco with the eggs, then pour over the beef mixture and stir until the eggs are set. Remove from heat and serve, sprinkling a bit of cheese on top of each serving.
