I saw this being made on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives and then heard the raves from the customers and had to get the recipe. You gotta give this a try, you won't be dissapointed. :D If you can't find the Maggi seasoning, use sugar(it's the main ingredient of the seasoning). I haven't tried using the sugar, so use your own judgement on this. You can scale this down to feed less if you like.

Green Goddess Dressing
- 1In a large stock pot, combine and the water, 1/2 cup sea salt, dill, thyme, bay leaves, chiles, coriander, caraway, carrots, celery, onions, seasoning sauce, and beets and bring to a boil. Boil on medium heat for about 1 hour.
- 2Remove the beets and let cool, discarding the liquid. Once cooled, remove the skin from the beets with a vegetable peeler. (Remember to wear gloves, as the beets will stain your hands as well as other surfaces.) Cut the beets into 1/4 to 1/2-inch slices. Place the beet slices, a drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of sea salt into a skillet over high heat and saute until glossy and tender, about 2 1/2 minutes on each side(or cook on a grill).
- 3Remove the beets from the skillet and serve with shaved red onion and Green Goddess Dressing on a toasted slider bun.
