Joe's Special

Joe's Special is an old-time San Francisco dish, and, wow, it sure is good comfort food. Since we've had a lot of spinach to go through lately, and I remembered eating this as a kid, and comfort food is always a good idea, we whipped this up and served it up in some old-fashioned diner bowls.

Joe's Special for 4

4 large eggs, beaten
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1-2 garlic cloves, whole, with skins on
1/2 pound lean ground beef
1 pound fresh spinach, roughly chopped

Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil. Add the ground beef and brown. When the ground beef is cooked, addd the spinach and saute until wilted. When the spinach is done, pour in the beaten eggs and stir until eggs are done.

Serve with salt and pepper to taste, and several good shakes of Tabasco sauce.
