Ok I'm going to sound a bit like Rachael Ray here. But sometimes I go to the grocery store ( read Costco) and I see things that blow my mind and I HAVE to buy them. Today's treasure? GOLDEN BEETS. I don't think I've ever had golden beets NOT in a restaurant. And they were like only $4!
Brown Sugar Glazed Golden Beets
What You Need
6-8 golden beets
1 tbl margarine
4 tbls brown sugar
3 tbls orange or apple juice
salt and pepper to taste
First, boil the crap out of your beets. Give 'em a good scrub and pop them in a sauce pan to boil. I did about 30 minutes.
Then you're going to "slip off the skins". I've read a lot of beet recipes and they all say the same thing "slip off the skins"-they make it sound SO easy. It wasn't. With a butter knife I kinda scraped/cut off some of the tougher skins, while using a paper towel to rub off some of the thinner ones. It was a messy, time consuming process. But I'd do it again because they're THAT good.
With my butter knife I roughly chopped
the beets into bite size pieces.
Combine the butter, brown sugar and orange juice in a sauté pan and bring to a boil. Then add in the beets and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until most of the liquid is evaporated.
I dunno. I guess I'm not very good at glazing because I cooked the crap outta those beets and the liquid didn't go anywhere. Granted I was lazy and put everything back in the sauce pot instead of a pan. Maybe that's the difference?
Didn't matter they were still delicious.
Stay tuned, because I have an awesome pork recipe that I made with these veggies. A perfect combo!
