  • 2 cans (13-1/4 ounces each) sliced beets
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter

"These were OK, nothing really spectacular about the flavour and I thought the sauce should be a bit thicker."

"Very good. I live in PA and Harvard Beets (aka Dutch beets) are very similar to this. I like this recipe a little better since it does not have too much vinegar. Will be making again. Great for Easter holiday."
