  • 4-6 medium beets 6-7” circumference
  • 1 cup cold water
  • Trivet or steamer basket


  • Rub and wash well the beets. Trim off and discard the stems and the roots.
  • Add a trivet or steamer basket to the pressure cooker, add cold water and arrange beets.
  • Close the lid and cook at High Pressure for 25 minutes for a crunchier texture and about 30 minutes for a softer texture, followed by a Quick Release. Check the blog post for timing suggestions based on the size of the beets.
  • Carefully open the lid, remove beets, let them slightly cool before peeling, slicing and serving.
