I never cared for beets until I tried them like this. Others who think beets taste too earthy also enjoy them prepared this way.

12.18.15 The recipe's name says it all it is easy and tasty. I was a little concerned that the balsamic vinegar might overpower the beet flavor and almost used milder white balsamic. Not to worry because 2 Tbsp of regular balsamic vinegar is spot on. The beets did take an additional 5 minutes to soften but that additional time didn't mess up the rest of the meal. My hubby who never has been a beet lover liked them. Thanks for sharing ddow. Read More

Wow! What a great idea!!! I think the shredded beets are more flavorful because they are cooked in very little liquid and in butter. Plus the pieces cook quickly and uniformly. We were out of regular balsamic vinegar so we used some bottled balsamic glaze. So delicious!!! Read More

Delicious! The only thing I changed was to add a little honey at the same time as the vinegar and I topped it with chopped fresh parsley just before serving. The parsley really went well with the sweet-tanginess of the beets. Definitely a keeper! Read More
