4 Ways to Cook Beets

Use any one of these four methods to prepare beets for recipes that call for them to be roasted, steamed, or boiled. Try the slow-roast method for Beet Salad with Arugula and Oranges, or try the fast-roast method for Roasted Beets with Mint-Yogurt Sauce.

    also? if you're dumb enough to not realize that these are cooking methods, i think you should stay away from the entire kitchen because there are sharp things in there!!!!

      Agree wholeheartedly with this. Nowhere in the article does it claim to be a recipe. Perhaps those that comprehend it as such need to take a class in basic reading comprehension

    It's April and I was looking for beet recipes- the last review was left in Feb. Please fix the STEPs as they are not steps but different methods, as the post before mine said. Beets are too wonderful to kill by using all four steps! Hello? anyone there?!

    These are not steps. These are four methods, to be used separately. If you are not supposed to do one step after another step, they should not be labeled as steps. Disappointing to find this kind of mistake on the Martha Stewart website.
