“Originally adapted from Williams Sonoma. I tweeked it because I just don't have that much time always :O)And I don't always have "beef demi-glace" on hand. I like to cook a ton of rice at once then freeze it in individual 2-cup baggies. Saves lots of time!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan or risotto pan over medium heat, melt 2 Tbs. of the butter with the olive oil. Add the onion and sauté until tender and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring, until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Stir in the rice and cook, stirring, until the grains are hot and coated with oil, about 2 minutes. Add the wine and continue to cook, stirring often, until the liquid is absorbed.
  2. Turn up to med-high heat. Add the chicken broth , stirring constantly and make sure the liquid has been absorbed. The risotto is done when the rice grains are creamy.
