#33 - Sauteed Spinach and Onions

We had some more steaks from our shipment from Omaha Steaks, and we wanted to have a new side. Sauteed spinach is always tasty, and after looking a bit online, we found a recipe from Paula Deen, y'all.

Sauteed Spinach and Onions

From Paula Deen
It's a pretty straightforward recipe, and since it's from Paula Deen, you can bet you'll need some butter, y'all.
This really is a simple recipe. You start out chopping onions and cooking them in butter.
Then you make a small batch of The Lady's House Seasoning. Paula's recipe told you how to make a huge amount of the seasoning that you could store for months, but we just did some arithmetic and only made as much as we needed for the spinach.
The most difficult part of this whole recipe is keeping the spinach in the pan. When you first put it in, it will be overflowing, but after tossing it in the butter and onions for a few minutes, it will become a lot more manageable.
All in all, this was a really simple side to make. But boy was it delicious, y'all! It was silky and savory, but it wasn't too heavy, as Paula Deen's meals can be.

Basically, we'll be making this again soon.
If you want to make it soon yourselves, do this:
  • 4 Tbs unsalted butter
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 9-oz bag baby spinach
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  1. Melt the butter in a large pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the onions, and cook until softened, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add the spinach, and toss to wilt for about 1 minute.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  5. Sprinkle the spinach and onions with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder mixture and the lemon juice, and remove from heat.
