The Tip For Never Peeling Beets Again, If You Have An Instant Pot
The beet is a visually stunning and delicious vegetable that offers a number of health benefits, protecting against stress-related illnesses and improving digestion. While peeling the sturdy, potently-colored skin of beets can be a difficult and messy process, you can totally skip the task if you cook the beets in an Instant Pot.
America’s Test Kitchen test cook Nicole Konstantinakos put beets in an Instant Pot and made a discovery: "I was delighted to discover that not only did [the skins] become tender, they became so tender they were barely discernible after cooking." This method to melt the skins only requires eight to 30 minutes, depending on beet size.
Pressure Cook Recipes' how-to for cooking skin-on beets requires a cup of water and cooks the beets upon a trivet within the pot, which will cause the skins to dissolve away. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, try peeling the beet like a potato with a veggie peeler to save time, or rub the skins off with a paper towel after they’ve been cooked.
