Recipe: New Joe's Special (Low Carb, Easy and Delicious)
October 12, 2009 Patrick Nemechek, D.O.

This is my version of an old San Francisco favorite known as New Joe’s Special.Ā  This was a favorite of my father’s when he was stationed with the Navy in San Francisco.Ā  It’s one of the many dishes my parents have passed onto the kids in our family, and most of us still cook it on a regular basis.

Ingredients for a serving of 4:

  • Olive oil
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • Frozen chopped spinach, 1 small box, thawed and drained of water
  • 4 Eggs blended together is a bowl
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat and saute the garlic and onions until the onions begin to soften and become somewhat translucent.
  2. Add in the ground beef and brown thoroughly.
  3. Mix in the spinach until it’s pretty evenly distributed with the meat.
  4. Mix in the the egg mixture and stir and cook until the eggs are cooked.Ā  About 4-6 more minutes.Ā  You can tell the eggs are cooked because they lose their shiny, wet appearance.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve hot.

This is a great tasting, low carbohydrate, fast and inexpensive dish that seems to please almost everyone.Ā  Tastes great with a little red wine (so I hear, ha ha).
