My mom loved these and I have never heard of anyone preparing beets quite this way! Not exactly a health-food, but so tasty! Mother said, 'Cook them until they're burned.' She was right! You may also need to add a little more butter or margarine if they seem to need it.

  • Place beets in a saucepan with about 2 inches of water. Cover saucepan and bring water to a boil; cook beets until tender, about 20 minutes. Remove beets from water and immediately immerse in a bowl of ice water to cool. Pull peels off the beets. Slice beets into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

  • Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; fry beets, flipping occasionally, until lightly blackened, about 20 minutes. Season beets with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

Margarine can be substituted for the butter.

I love beets, so “fried beets” definitely caught my attention.... As I read the directions, and it encouraged “burning”, I immediately thought, this process caramelises the sugar! I haven’t tried this recipe, only because it’s too late after supper.... But you can be sure it’ll be on my menu for tomorrow.... this sounds delish.... After I make them, I’ll add a pic.... Salted, carameled beets?? Whats not to love about that Read More
