  • 6 beets medium, about 3 inches in diameter
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • Kosher salt optional
  • black pepper Freshly ground, optional


  • Trim the beets leaving about 1/2-inch of the stem and roots. I do this for ease of peeling after cooking. Thoroughly wash and scrub the beets. 
  • Place the rack in the pot. Pour in 1 1/2 cups of water. Lay the prepared beets in a single layer on the rack.
  • Put the pressure cooking lid in place and lock. Make sure the valve is set to sealing.
  • Set to high pressure, push start and cook for 30 minutes.
  • When the timer beeps. Turn off the Foodi and manually release the steam by turning the pressure release control to vent.
  • Use a sharp knife to pierce the beets to test doneness. If the knife pierces the flesh without too much resistance, they are done. If the beets seem a little to firm for you, cook another 2-5 minutes under high pressure.
  • Let the beets cool long enough to handle easily.  Once cooled trim both ends off the beet. You can then use your hands to slip the skins off under running water.
  • Slice and serve.


The size of the beets will affect cooking time. 
  • 1"-2" in diameter: 10-15 minutes high pressure
  • 2"-3" in diameter: 15-20 minutes high pressure
  • 3" or larger in diameter: 25-30 minutes high pressure
