"A delicious way of serving beetroot, that can be eaten hot or cold. You may need to adjust the sugar and vinegar to taste. This is better left for the next day, and reheated."

  1. Place beets in a large saucepan, and cover with water. Bring to a boil, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of the beets. Drain, cool, peel, and dice.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onion until tender. Stir in flour, and cook for about 2 minutes. Gradually stir in chicken stock. Add the diced beets, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in brown sugar and vinegar. Cook for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

These were great! My boyfriend loved them. I love finding new beet recipies, we grow them. This one is a keeper!

Very tasty! I made this vegetarian, so I put vegetable stock instead of chicken broth, and I used 3/4 pounds beets instead of 1/2 a pound, and the flavor came out very nicely.

This is my new favorite recipe for beets. It is just wonderful! Thank you for sharing.
