Grilled Beets, Zucchini and Tri-Tip oh my

Jun 28, 2010 by


I have found my new favorite thing.  Grilled beets.  Yeah I hear you, it doesn’t sound terribly exciting, but these are seriously amazing.  I’m not a big beet fan.  I like them ok, but would never get really excited about eating them.  Our garden has grown some amazing beets thus far and we are now starting to harvest and eat them.  I thought I’d try something besides just steaming them, so I simply sliced them up, brushed with olive oil and threw them on the BBQ.  Add a little salt and pepper and voila, the most amazing tasty treat ever.

I also grilled up some Zucchini and some Tri-tip.  Here is the whole rundown.


Here is a the bounty from the garden


Wash and chop the tops and ends off of the beets.


Peel the beets.


It makes a fun red mess


Slice up the zucchini into 1/2 inch slices


Same thing with the beets


looking good


it doesn’t get much easier than this.  3 things you need.  Olive oil, salt and pepper.


Throw the steak on the grill.  I got a yummy tri-tip from Costco.  So good.


The beets cook for about 5-6 minutes per side.  I brushed the grill with some olive oil, lightly brushed the beets with olive oil and threw them on.


look how pretty!


I love those colors


Flip them over and add the Zucchini


The zucchini grills much faster.  Only a few minutes per side


When you take the meat off of the grill you must let it rest.  Don’t touch it, poke it, slice it, or anything.  Just let it rest for 10-15 minutes.


After you pull the zucchini and beets sprinkle them with salt and pepper.  They turned out so good.  I’m very excited to have a garden full of beets now!
