Roasted Asian Vegetables

As a side for my Teriyaki Pineapple Short Ribs I decided to roast a combination of beets, bell peppers, onions and carrots in a sweet Asian sauce, similar to that of the sauce in which I pressure cooked the short ribs.

The result was a delicious side dish that would go perfectly with any Asian dish.
