Ingredients

  • Bacon, diced
  • Chicken stock
  • Butter
  • Onion, diced
  • Garlic, minced
  • Arborio rice
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

Instructions

Sizzle diced bacon in a spacious skillet over medium heat until golden brown, approximately 10 minutes, then drain and set aside.

Bring chicken stock to a boil in a separate pan over high heat, then reduce heat to low to maintain its warmth.

In a substantial saucepan with a thick bottom, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat.

Sauté diced onion and minced garlic until the onion edges begin to brown, about 2 minutes.

Add Arborio rice and stir to coat it in the flavorful butter, toasting it for 2 to 3 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium and gradually whisk in one-third of the hot chicken stock.

Continue stirring persistently until the rice absorbs the liquid, achieving a creamy texture.

Repeat this process twice more, stirring continuously.

The broth incorporation should take around 15 to 20 minutes in total.

When finished, the rice should be tender yet slightly firm to the bite.

Remove the risotto from the heat and incorporate the remaining butter, grated Parmesan cheese, and reserved bacon.

Season with salt and pepper to your taste before serving.
