Crockpot Beets

Last year, my husband discovered beets. 

This year, we planted some in our garden. 

I grew up eating beets, but we always either boiled them or cooked them in the oven.  But, this time, I tried them in the crockpot and they were outstanding.

Crockpot Beets


  • 4-5 medium beets
  • 1/4 C water


Begin by scrubbing the beets (but leave the skin on).  Place the beets into a small crockpot and pour in 1/4 C water. 

Cover, and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or on high for 4 hours. 

Carefully remove from the crockpot and peel (use caution because they will be really hot!).  We found it easiest to peel the better on a plate with a knife and fork. 

Slice and serve warm. 



  1. oh this is great!! I try to use the crock pot rather than the oven when I can, as it uses less energy. I am one of those people who try to tread lightly on the earth, and hate to fire up my big oven, and wrap a couple beets in foil. The only other recipe for beets in the crock pot still called for foil. Yay!!

    1. I love doing that too, Trish! Being an ecology teacher, I am right there with you with regard to treading lightly. The crockpot is amazing (it's the most energy efficient kitchen appliance!) and I also love that you don't have to wrap the beets. I do the same thing with potatoes.

  2. What a cute & unique Crock Pot you have there! Love that design!

    1. Thanks! I inherited it from my 98 year old neighbor. I can safely say it's an antique ;-)


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
