Ingredients
  • 3 Tbsp. olive or sunflower oil
  • 3 medium gold beets, cut into 8 wedges each
  • 4 medium carrots, cut into similar sized pieces
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 3 slices bacon, cut into ¼” strips crosswise
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • ¼ c. golden raisins, coarsely chopped

Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet (well-seasoned cast iron or nonstick) over medium heat & stir in beets, carrots, shallots, bacon, salt & pepper.
  2. Mostly cover with a lid (leave it open an inch or so) & cook for 7-8 minutes, stirring once or twice, until vegetables start to brown.
  3. Uncover & add raisins & orange juice. Turn the heat down a bit & cook uncovered, stirring every couple minutes, for another 12-14 minutes, until liquid has turned to a glaze & vegetables are nicely caramelized. Serve immediately.
