Being new to Dallas I figure it’s only right to make something that my Dallas fans would enjoy and appreciate. Some delicious red meat with a creamy rice sounds perfect.

In a pot over medium heat, heat oil and sauté onion for 2 minutes then add garlic. Quickly stir in rice, salt and black pepper cook for 2 minutes until rice is slightly toasted with nutty aromas; add wine let absorb, next add chicken stock 1 cup at a time. Stir rice every 1 minute adding another cup of stock when you notice rice has absorbed majority of the liquid.
Once all stock is incorporated about 15-20 minutes, stir in remaining butter and parmesan, rice should be al dente(bite). Taste and adjust seasoning. If you want your rice less al dente, add an extra cup of stock before adding butter and parmesan.
Garnish risotto with parmesan and cherry tomatoes, add steak on top garnish with parsley.
Preheat oven to 400 F Note: Your risotto should have a saucy consistency. It shouldn’t be dry like steamed or boiled rice. To reheat risotto, add ¼ cup of water to every 1 cup of risotto you’re reheating.
