A slow cooked, delicious Italian Beef Risotto. Savory, comforting and deliciously warming for a wonderful Fall or Winter meal.
There aren’t a ton of food items that start with I, just sayin’.
We first settled on Ice Cream.
Then I decided I wanted to use the two ice cream recipes for different posts in May and June (for Summer) and then we made the decision that we could do Icing – but I already have done so many different cupcakes lately that I was stuck.
And then it hit me, Italian. I love Italian.
My entire family loves Italian. Then it was … let’s figure out what to make. Now I realize, before hand that this dish isn’t actually completely Italian.
However, I make a mean Italian Beef Risotto, which until about a year ago or so, I had no idea was even a Risotto. I just used the wrong rice (I do this a lot actually, discover that I’m making something with a real name plus an ingredient, or minus an ingredient – haha).
I was basically just slow cooking rice for a really long time until it got thick and voila. I guess I made Risotto.
But I switched to Arborio rice and it made a huge difference. Plus, now I had a real Risotto.
A delicious Italian Beef Risotto! Yum!
It’s one of our favorite winter comfort meals. It’s so easy, just takes a little while. But that’s Risotto. Time is what you need, comfort is what you gain.
