    Black & Blue Steakhouse Risotto Recipe - Home Chef (2)

    Rich and deep flavors abound in this classic risotto. Steak and blue cheese is such a classic pairing, we're tempted not to say much more other than it's here and as fabulous as always. Mushrooms and nutty Parmesan add even more umami depth to this creamy dinner. We've also crammed in some healthy spinach and sweet caramelized onions. This meal is an embarrassment of riches.

      Start the Risotto

      Place a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and rice to hot pot. Stir occasionally until rice is toasted and opaque, 1-2 minutes.

      Add 1 cup boiling water from small pot to rice. Rice should just be covered by water. Stir often until nearly all water is absorbed.Add 1/2 cup boiling water and stir often again until nearly all water is absorbed. Repeat this process, stirring often, 18-20 minutes.Taste risotto as you cook, checking for tenderness. When rice has no more “bite” or crunch, it's done. There may be water left.Remove from burner.
