What is Risotto?

Are you wondering what is Risotto?  Well, it’s an Italian rice dish. It is made by briefly sauteing the rice in olive oil or butter (often with some onion), then adding a little bit of stock, stirring almost constantly until the rice absorbs the stock, then adding a bit more stock, stirring, adding, stirring, adding until it’s done. It usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes of stirring.

When it’s done, the rice is cooked through and bound in a wonderful creamy sauce that is made as the starch leaches out of the rice grains and combines with the stock.

  1. I have been making risotto for years and lately with the high cost of things at the market I have been making it more often. I love arborio rice, but to tell the truth I make risotto with just about any kind of rice I can find. I never thought of making it in the oven though, seems almost like a casserole. I always have my arm falling off from all the stirring! I am going to try this recipe at home tonight, but I think I am going to use some italian sausage, crimini’s and chicken in the mix and see what happens.

    excellent post and really good risotto recipes!

    Thank You!
