Ingredients

  • 6 Tablespoons Salted Butter (divided)
  • 1/2 Onion (finely diced)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (finely diced)
  • 2 cups Arborio Rice
  • 7-8 cups Chicken Stock
  • 3/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  • Fresh Italian Parsley (diced)
  • 1 lb. Wild Mushrooms (sliced)

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add 2 Tablespoons of butter and saute onion for 6-7 minutes or until it begins to soften.  Add garlic cloves and cook for 1-2 minutes longer. 

  2. Add rice and cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in 1 cup of chicken stock at a time. Let the rice absorb the chicken stock before adding another cup.
