Beets in Mustard Sauce with Shallots

Nov 20, 2019 | Sides

This classic beets with mustard sauce recipe gets a semi-homemade makeover with pre-cooked, packaged beets. Not only does it speed up the marinating time, it drastically reduces cook time to no-cook time! I use the packaged beets from the refrigerated section that are lightly marinated with vinegar. 

I’m not a fan of cooking and peeling beets—so messy. Worried about rich flavor with pre-cooked beets? Don’t, because they’re lightly marinated already with vinegar, it’s the perfect base for this creamy mustard sauce. It reduces the need to make this dish 24 hours in advance. Honestly, you can serve them right away if you needed to. Waiting at least an hour though will give the garlic time to do its job. I add shallots for added texture and crunch. My beets in mustard sauce with shallots is the perfect side to any dish. Enjoy!
