I love beets in salad, but I am not always a fan of the beets you get from a jar or can. So when I saw a bunch of fresh beets at my local grocery store, I decided to try cooking them in the Instant Pot. Perfect!
- Instant Pot 6qt Duo
- Instant Pot Trivet
- Large Spoon
- Measuring Cup
- 1 cup Water
- If your beets have stems, discard those. Some people like to eat them, but I am not one of those.
- Place your beets whole on a trivet in the Instant Pot inner pot with 1 cup water.
- Close Instant Pot lid and the vent. Set on Manual on High Pressure for 20 min and QPR when done.
- Peel beets. You will find that the skin almost slides off. Be careful though cause these will be hot and will stain your hands bright pink if not wearing rubber gloves.
The beets will keep for a few days in your fridge. I tossed mine with some salt, pepper, and butter. I ate them with some lettuce, tomatoes, sprouts, and blue cheese as a salad. Yum!
