Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a kettle cover the beets with 2 inches cold water, bring to a boil, and simmer the beets, covered, for 20 to 35 minutes (depending on their size), or until they are tender.

Step 2

Drain the beets and under the cold running water slip off and discard their skins and stems.

Step 3

In a skillet bring to a boil the stout and the vinegar and whisk in 2 tablespoons of the butter.

Step 4

Quarter and stir in the beets, add the salt and pepper to taste, and keep the beets warm, covered.

Step 5

In a large skillet heat the remaining 2 tablespoons butter over moderately high heat until the foam subsides, in it sauté the reserved beet greens, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until they are tender, and stir in the salt and pepper to taste.

Step 6

Arrange the greens around the edge of a platter and mound the beets in the center.
