  • pressure cooker


  • 3-5 beets
  • 1 cup water


  • Prep your beets for cooking by removing stems and washing well.
    Place in pressure cooker with water. If you have a steam tray, add that in before adding the beets.
    Seal your pressure cooker. Set for 15 minutes on high pressure.
    Once the timer has gone off, allow for the natural release. When the pressure has been released, carefully remove the lid.
    The beets will be very hot, of course, so be careful. They are ready to peel at this point.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
