Culinate editor’s note: This recipe will be available in Lynne Curry’s book Pure Beef, to be released in late spring 2012.
A lot of people take credit for creating this dish, a winning combination of ground beef, mushrooms, and spinach made famous in San Francisco. To make my own version, I strived to get the texture of the eggs just the way I like them, a little like a frittata with well-seasoned ground beef, heavy on the spinach, and melted Monterey Jack on top. It’s a lifesaving one-skillet dish for a late-night supper or a sleep-in Sunday brunch served with hot buttered toast. Pass the hot sauce.
