Grated Beets Russian Style

I don't think I have ever met anyone that likes beets, except for me and some family. I love beets and eat them often. I found this recipe a few years ago and it is so easy and good. Beets are also considered a super food so just because of that you should give them a try! It must be a culture thing because in Australia for example, they have diced beets at Subway as an option to add to your sandwich - I was in heaven! Come to think of it these grated beets would be great in a sandwich too, I am going to have to try it.

2 TBSP butter
4 cups coarsely chopped beets (about 2 large beets)
2 TBSP lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup water
1 TBSP flour
1/2 cup sour cream

1. Heat the butter in an 8-inch skillet
2. Add the betts, lemon juice, salt, pepper and water
3. Cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally
4. Sprinkle the flour over the beets, do not stir.
5. Cover and cook an additional 5 minutes
6. Serve with a dollop of sour cream
