From Daryl aka Avery:
When my sisters and I were young, my dad liked to take us to San Francisco for theater. Often we went to a nearby restaurant. The place was called Original Joe's.
Here's the history of Original Joe's - the first Original Joe's was established in San Francisco by Louis Rocca and Tony "Ante" Rodin in 1937; it is currently owned and managed by Rodin's grandchildren. The restaurant was originally located in the Tenderloin neighborhood and initially consisted of 14 bar stools and a sawdust-covered floor.
Joe's served up something really tasty. I didn't really know what was in it, just that I liked it.
Then my mother figured it out. It turns out the dish is really easy to make!! Even my character Jenna in the Cookbook Nook Mysteries could manage this one!
The dish is called Joe's Special. It is made with beef, onion, eggs, and spinach. A complete meal in one dish.
However, here's my twist. When I married Chuck, I started making this deliciousness with ground turkey, and he loved it, so we never went back to beef.
My take on Joe's Special.
