Fresh Fried Beets W/Balsamic Drizzle
I bought some beets the other day, as I love their earthiness and how they taste when fried...Gram used to fry them, but all by themselves. I wanted to add some subtle flavor to them, without taking away their natural flavor and this is what I came up with...let me tell you they were awesome! Needless to say, I didn't share...LOL!
If you love beets, you should give them a try.
- 5 - 6 medium
- beets - boiled or roasted - skin removed - sliced about 1/4 thick
- 2 - 3 Tbsp
- bacon fat - if you don't have any stored, fry off a few pieces of bacon
- 1 small
- red onion- thin sliced
- salt & fresh cracked black pepper
- 1 - 2 clove
- garlic - minced
- vinegar - good quality
In my iron skillet over medium heat, I added my bacon fat - after hot, add the onion and garlic - stirring frequently so not to burn, just until tender.
I may have used 1 tsp of balsamic, not a lot, as I didn't want it to take over the flavor of the beets...I love the beets made this way...I hope you do as well...
