This is such a great recipe, perfect as is. Would just add that if you are out of white wine and/or stock a good sub is 2 tblspn balsamic vinegar. nummers!

I KNEW I would like beet greens if I finally took the time to make them. I just didn't know how much. I ate the entire pan on my own for dinner and it was fab. I used 3 slices of bacon and next time I'll use a half onion. Thanks!
