Recipe Type: Side
Serves: 3-4 people
  • 3-4 medium or large beets, tops removed
  • 2 Tbl. olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • aluminum foil
  1. Scrub the exterior of the beets with a vegetable brush to remove any soil particles. Tear off enough aluminum foil to form a neat package around each beet. Place the beet in the center of the foil; season with olive oil, salt and pepper. Wrap each beet by folding the corners to the center and twist to seal.
  2. Place the foil packages, seam side up, in the slow cooker. Cook on high for 3-4 hours, or until a paring knife an easily pierce the center. Cooking time will vary depending on the size of your beets. Mine were the size of a baseball and took 3 ½ hours to become tender.
  3. Remove the beets from the slow cooker and open the packages to allow the steam to escape. Once cool enough to handle, remove the skin with a paring knife. It should easily fall way. Serve the beets as you wish. I like mine cubed with a small sprinkling of parsley.
