Beets have a strong enough flavor of their own to be able to handle 
stevia quite nicely.  In fact, they seem to enhance each other.  
(Kind of like fennel with beets; in fact, stevia has an aftertaste 
somewhat similar to fennel.)

I quarter the beets and steam, then peel and maybe cut into smaller 
(bite-size) pieces, if I'm feeling ambitious, and sprinkle with 
either the powdered stevia (man, this stuff is S-W-E-E-T), or add 
a couple drops of the liquid.  Sometimes (again, if I'm feeling
ambitions), I'll put the peeled and cut pieces back into the pan 
and add a bit of cornstarch and water with the stevia to make a 
kind of glaze.

I don't know about bleeding, but when raw these things are a booger 
to slice, let alone try to peel.
