It’s about time I got on the pickling train, and there’s no better recipe to start than with these Pickled Beets from The Burr Trail Grill in Boulder, UT.
Two years ago we made a trip down south to Torrey, UT for a music festival some of my husband’s old band buddies were in. After the gigging was done, we went exploring and landed about an hour east of Torrey in Boulder, UT, the gateway to the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (look at this landscape!), Capital Reef National Park and the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area including Lake Powell.
While the stunning red rocks contrasting the bright blue sky and wooded canyon lend to amazing outdoor adventure that brings world wide travelers to the area, in my opinion the real deal here is the the local eateries including the renowned Hell’s Backbone Grill.
We tried to grab some lunch at Hell’s Backbone while we were there, but since they were open only for dinner that weekend, we skipped next store to the Burr Trail Grill for tasty burgers and the most amazing polenta with caramelized onions, grilled red peppers and goat cheese appetizer. Seriously, I still think about that thing.
But what really rocked my socks was the sides of pickled veggies and pickled beets they served with their sandwiches and burgers.
