I like beets, but they're just one of those things that I rarely prepare for myself. Fortunately, I've found that the sous vide machine is excellent for preparing beets.

Peel and slice one large red beet. Add to a vacuum bag, along with salt, pepper, and a little olive oil. Vacuum seal.

The beets are very tender but are still firm and maintain their shape at this length and temperature. Once cooked they'll keep well in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
