  • 1 1⁄2 lb. fresh spinach (to yield 3⁄4 lb.)
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1⁄2 lb. ground chuck

  1. Trim spinach, wash in several changes of water, then blanch in a pot of boiling salted water over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Drain in a colander and cool under cold running water. Squeeze out excess water; roughly chop.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook for 10 minutes; add ground chuck and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until brown, about 3 minutes.
