I had fresh beets that I first cooked in my Instant Pot. Stove-top & Instant Pot directions are in the notes.
The time for this recipe assumes cooked beets.


  • 8oz (240gr) cooked beets, cut into bite-size chunks
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 2 tbs Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp thyme


  • Sauté beets in butter until hot.
  • Add remaining ingredients and heat through.
  • Serve


  • Wash beets, cut off roots and cut beets in half or quarters to get similar sizes. Put beets on rack in Instant Pot with 1 cup of water.
  • Pressure cooking time for beets that are about 2″ in diameter is 20 minutes, then quick release. Peel when cool enough to handle. 
  • To boil them takes 20 – 40 minutes, depending on size, until tender when pierced with a knife. Peel when cool enough to handle.
  • Both of these methods are for cooking beets to be used in recipes.
  • You could, of course, simply roast and eat them.
