I grew up eating pickled beets, fried beets, roasted beets, Harvard and so I guess you could say I love them...especially my Grams pickled beets, never had any as good as hers.

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.

How to Make Fresh Fried Beets W/Balsamic Drizzle

Step-by-Step

  1. I boiled my beets for about 20 minutes, until tender. Drain and let cool until can handle. ( you could use canned beets, but fresh is best.)

    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.
  2. Add the sliced beets, not overlapping, as you want them all to get a browning. Add desired kosher salt and pepper. Cook on one side for about 4 - 5 minutes, then turn and brown the other side. ( I just moved the onions and garlic to one side of pan, and occasionally stir so didn't burn on bottom, could remove if you want, while beets are browning.)
  3. Once beets are browned mix with the onions and garlic - Plate, and sprinkle with a little more salt & pepper - drizzle with desired amount of balsamic and enjoy!

    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...
