Wash the fresh beet green in a sink filled with cold water. Place cleaned and wet beet greens in a colander to let some of the water drain off. NOTE: You want the leaves to be wet.
Place washed beet greens in a large pot. There is no need to add additional water as the rinsed leaves will provide adequate moisture.
Cook, covered, over medium heat until the greens look wilted, approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Beet greens cook quickly, so take care not to overcook them.
Beet greens will cook down quite a lot (just like fresh spinach leaves).
When cooked, remove cooked beet greens to your serving bowl. Season with some butter, salt, and pepper to your liking.
