I served this last night and it was amazing. I roasted fresh beets in the oven to use. (Cut off both ends of small sized beets, salt and pepper and wrapped in foil. Baked for 1 hour at 400 degrees. Unwrap and let cool a bit then rinse under water and slide skin off.)
My whole dinner consisted of recipes from Meridian Meats…Thank you .
