Week 9: Becky~Bacon Risotto

I have never made risotto and this recipe had great ratings.  Can I just say yummy?  Recipe from Allrecipes.

Bacon Risotto

1/2 pound bacon
5 cups chicken stock
2 tbsp butter
1/2 onion
4 cloves garlic
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Bring chicken stock to a boil.  Once it boils, reduce to low and keep the chicken stock warm. 

Meanwhile dice the bacon and cook until brown.

Dice onions and garlic.  Melt 2 tbsp butter in a chef's pan or other similar big pot and cook the onions and garlic until slightly browned.  Add the rice and stir until the rice is coated with butter and begins to toast. Reduce beat and stir in 1/3 of the chicken stock.  Stir frequently until the liquid is absorbed and turns creamy.  Add another third of the chicken stock.  Stir frequently until the liquid is absorbed and turns creamy.  Repeat.  When the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender, it's done.

Remove from heat and add 2 tbsp butter, parmesan cheese and bacon.
