chopped fresh rosemary
garlic, peeled and crushed
herbes de Provence
beets, sliced into rounds
Without a grill, I wrapped the beets in foil, and baked in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes. Wonderful!
The beets were OK, but a little dry. Also, I questioned putting the marinade and the beets in aluminum foil. I've always heard that vinegar and aluminum interact negatively. I also questioned whether the beets should have been marinated AFTER the grilling. The raw beets were hard to handle, and I wonder if the flavor wouldn't have been more intense with marinating after the cooking.
I wanted to use both the beets and the greens so I changed it up a bit. I took the raw unpeeled beets and boiled them for a few minutes until tender crisp stage. Let them cool, then peeled and sliced them. Added them to the marinade and omitted the garlic ( I felt like they would overpower the earthy sweet flavor). Grilled them directly on grill for a few minutes on each side.For the greens, I carmelized some red onion and thick cut bacon in a little olive oil with a bit of turbinado sugar and splash of balsamic, then sauteed the greens for just a few minutes until tender and bright green. Served the grilled beets on top of the greens. The flavors were bright and simple!
This was a really wonderful dish, and a welcome addition to any bbq dinner. I bought some golden beets (deep yellow flesh) at a local farmers' market, and was looking for a way to prepare them on the grill. I peeled the beets, which the recipe doesn't specify, and I used thyme, marjoram & savory in place of herbes de provence, and added salt and pepper. The balsamic vinegar complements the beets very well. I will definitely make this again--thanks!
This is a great recipe! The only change I made was to boil the beets in a big pot of water first until tender (I then skinned and sliced them). I had about 5 beets I was working with and didn't want to be relying solely on the grill to get all the slices cooked through. However, the taste is wonderful, even though I only had fresh rosemary and had to use dried herbs for the rest. I cut the leftover slices into chunks today and threw them in the pasta/veggie salad I already had and they added a wonderful flavor. I will definitely use this recipe again!
wow, what a superb sweet/savoury/smoky dish for the summer, THE BEST i've ever had beets, i've got peeps hooked on these and everyone wants this simple yet deep-flavoured recipe
Yum, these were a great new way to make beets! Next time I'd grill them a little longer though, since mine were still a little firm. Also, the recipe doesn't specify to peel the beets, but I did it anyway because I can never seem to get them clean enough by scrubbing. Oh, and don't use a wood cutting board or it will end up pink!
great! I added a little olive oil and instead of herbes de Provence I took some lavender and oregano from the garden in addition to the fresh rosemary. delicious!
