Joe’s Special

If you’re following the Paleo diet, this one’s for you. No grains anywhere to be found, but lots of animal protein. I originally got the recipe off a South Beach Diet message board years ago, and pull it out whenever we have an influx of ground beef.

I don’t know why it’s called Joe’s Special. I don’t know the Joe in question, or any Joe whatsoever. (I’d like to know this Joe. Talk about yummy.)

In addition, I’m going to start posting pictures of the ingredients instead of the final product, A Year of Slow Cooking style. It is hard to quickly snap a yummy looking photo on a cell phone when you have zero time. At least the ingredients and my kitchen look somewhat palatable.


Joe’s Special

You need:

Olive oil
1 large yellow onion, diced
4 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp salt1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 10oz package frozen spinach, thawed and thoroughly drained
6 eggs, scrambled

You do:

Heat the oil and saute the onion until soft. Add the mushrooms and saute until the mushrooms have released their water. Add the beef, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beef has browned. Add the spinach and cook, stirring occasionally, until warmed through. Pour the eggs over the entire mixture and combine. Again, cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggs are cooked and warmed through.
