Instant Pot Beets
Beet or Beetroot
Salt & Pepper
Trim the beet leaves leaving the root. Rinse the beets under water to remove any dirt.
Place the beets in your
silicone steamer basket
Add a cup of water to the instant pot and place the basket in it. Close the lid and turn the valve to sealing position.
For small to medium sized beets, cook on MANUAL or pressure cook mode at high pressure for 15 minutes. For all large beets, cook for 20 minutes.
When pressure cooking is done, allow natural release for 10 minutes, then quick release the pressure.
Open the lid and check that the beets are tender all the way through by inserting a knife through one of them. If the beets are not tender, let them pressure cook for few more minutes.
Carefully remove the steamer basket and transfer the beets to a plate and let them cool for few minutes.
Peel the skin and slice the beets as you prefer. Enjoy! :-)
