Caramelized Beets and Onions

This is our absolute favorite way to have beets.  Gene says that he doesn't believe anyone that says they don't like beets until they've tried this recipe:

3-4 medium beets, sliced into thin rounds
2 medium onions, sliced into thin rounds
4 TBSP cooking oil
salt and pepper

Heat cooking oil in a heavy bottomed skillet on medium heat.  Add sliced beets and onions and saute for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.  Turn the heat to medium-low, cover skillet and cook for 30-45 minutes until caramelized, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.  Season and serve hot.  Makes 4 accompaniment servings.
