Yield: 6 servings
|6 larges||Beets ( 1 1/2 lb), scrubbed, trimmed, leaving roots and 1 1/2" of stems intact|
|2 tablespoons||Sweet butter|
|3 tablespoons||Grand Marnier|
|1 teaspoon||Grated orange rind|
In a steamer set over simmering water, steam the beets, covered, for 25 to 35 minutes, or until they are just tender. Refresh the beets under cold water, slip off the skins, and cut the beets into ⅜-inch wedges. In a large skillet, cook the beets in the butter over moderate heat, stirring for 3 minutes. Stir in the Grand Marnier, the orange rind, and salt to taste; simmer the mixture, covered, for 3 minutes.
