“I have been making this for years it's one of my family's favorite rice dishes! use arborio rice only for this any other rice will not produce the same creamy texture --- keep all chicken broth hot in a saucepan next to where you are making the risotto and also have a ladle handy --- make certain to prepare this rice when you have a bit of time as it will take between 25-30 minutes in front of the stove top to make this.”

Directions

  1. Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan; reduce the heat, to low and cover the saucepan to keep hot.
  2. In another heavy-bottomed saucepan melt 1/4 cup butter over medium-low heat, add in onion and saute until very tender but not brown (about 8-10 minutes).
  3. Add in garlic and stir for about 2 minutes.
  4. Increase heat slightly and add in the rice; stir for 1 minute.
  5. Slowly add in 1-1/2 cups hot broth with a ladle; boil gently, stirring until the broth is absorbed.
  6. Add in another 1 cup broth, and stir until absorbed.
  7. Add in 1/2 cup broth at a time allowing the broth to absorb before adding in another 1/2 cup (do this until you have used up all of the broth) stirring frequently until the rice is tender and creamy (this should take between 25-30 minutes).
  8. Stir in 3 tablespoons butter and 1-1/4 cup (or less) grated Parmesan cheese; mix to combine.
  9. Season with salt and pepper.
  10. Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
