Joe's Extra Special

This is a take on an original Joe's Special from San Francisco. A Joe's is one of the true San Francisco treats, like Hangtown Fry, Cioppino and sourdough french bread (try and find Rice-A-Roni in ANY San Francisco restaurant; GOOD LUCK!). Swiss Chard is the "extra" and a hearty change-up from spinach in this version. This makes a good low-carb meal choice.

    i spent a few of my formative years in the Bay Area, and, at that time, new joe's special was a common businessmen's lunch special at the better san francisco restaurants....my father brought home a recipe from one of them, and new joe's special became a rotation regular in our home, 40 years ago....this recipe captures that exact taste....i did not attempt the swiss chard - just spinach and chopped, frozen at that....in all other aspects, i went to the letter of the recipe, and the result was outstanding...
