Recipe by Chef-Boy-I-Be Illin

I love beets, whether harvard, pickled, or straight up; however, my partner thinks they taste like dirt ;-) We got some beets with our weekly farm shipment and I decided to show him he could like beets with a very simple preparation method my Grandma used. If you like gentle earthiness of beets, then you'll like this recipe. It allows the beets themselves to shine through.

  • 1 lb beet, peeled and sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons water

  2. A food processor will make the slicing much easier.

  5. MAY have to add a tad bit more water, so keep an eye.
