  • 4 Tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 ½ cups arborio rice
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3 cups [chicken stock]
  • 3 cups [beef stock]
  • 2 ounces parmesan cheese grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large pot, melt butter.
  • Add onions and cook until translucent (about 3 minutes).
  • Stir in rice and cook 1-2 minutes, until it starts to brown.
  • Add wine and cook 1-2 minutes, until wine is absorbed.
  • Stir in chopped mushrooms.
  • Add broth one ladleful at a time, cooking and stirring until absorbed. Repeat this process until all the stock is gone.
  • Stir in parmesan.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve and finish with shaved parmesan cheese.


  • Using a mix of chicken stock and beef stock will provide the best flavor for your risotto.
  • Shiitakes and Portobella mushrooms work best!
  • This risotto keeps for about a week in a airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Topping with an aged parmesan is optional but it truly finishes off the dish wonderfully!
  • Using a wooden spoon with a corner tip will make your life easier while stirring this risotto.
  • Homemade chicken stock and homemade beef stock keep down the sodium and calorie count lower. It also allows for a better, more rounded flavor!
