Without a grill, I wrapped the beets in foil, and baked in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes. Wonderful! - 26 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I wanted to use both the beets and the greens so I changed it up a bit. I took the raw unpeeled beets and boiled them for a few minutes until tender crisp stage. Let them cool, then peeled and sliced them. Added them to the marinade and omitted the garlic ( I felt like they would overpower the earthy sweet flavor). Grilled them directly on grill for a few minutes on each side.For the greens, I carmelized some red onion and thick cut bacon in a little olive oil with a bit of turbinado sugar and splash of balsamic, then sauteed the greens for just a few minutes until tender and bright green. Served the grilled beets on top of the greens. The flavors were bright and simple! - 06 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The beets were OK, but a little dry. Also, I questioned putting the marinade and the beets in aluminum foil. I've always heard that vinegar and aluminum interact negatively. I also questioned whether the beets should have been marinated AFTER the grilling. The raw beets were hard to handle, and I wonder if the flavor wouldn't have been more intense with marinating after the cooking. - 29 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
