We love beets. They’re delicious roasted as a side dish for dinner, they’re tasty in salads, scrumptious in soup and they’re even good in cupcakes!  In fact, beets are a pretty regular staple ingredient around here.  And now that I use my slow cooker to roast them, adding beets to our dinner rotation got easier than ever!

Using a Slow Cooker to Roast Beets

Over the years I’ve cooked beets in many different ways…by boiling, baking in tin foil, barbequing, and most recently using my slow cooker.  I decided to try the slow cooker method over the summer when I had a huge bag of beets that needed to be cooked.  I didn’t want to boil them because it’s messy, and honestly I feel like all the nutrients get boiled out.  I didn’t want to wrap them all in tin foil because it felt wasteful, so I decided to try to cook them in my slow cooker.   And am I ever glad I did!

This was by far the easiest way to cook beets!  I just trimmed them up, don’t worry about peeling them, and added them to my slow cooker with about 1 cup of water.  Then turn it on high and let them cook for about 4 hours.  After this time you have perfectly cooked beets.

Roasted Beets Recipe Tip:

Don’t peel the beets before you cook them…it’s messy and not necessary.  After the beets have been roasted the skins should peel off easily with your hands.  I like to do this under running water when they’re still warm.  Often all you need to do is squeeze the beets and the skins should just slide off.  SO simple.

    Perfect! Exactly what I was looking for today! I love using beets for pickling hard boiled eggs, but the messy way I was doing it was a drag.
    Thanks for sharing this with us!
