Nothing is better on a cool October night than a big bowl of risotto, a creamy creation we have Italy to thank for. Also from Italy (well, Sicily) is Marsala wine, a sweet fortified wine used in such Italian favorites as, well, Chicken Marsala. It adds a lovely rich flavor to the umami-packed mushrooms, which in turn combine with steak strips and tomatoes for the perfect topping for risotto. Did we say nothing was better on a cool October night? We mean any night.

    Start the Risotto

    Place another medium pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add rice and half the green onions (reserve remaining for mushrooms). Stir occasionally until rice is toasted, 1-2 minutes.

  • Step 3 - Finish the Risotto

    Finish the Risotto

    Add 1 cup boiling water and ¼ tsp. salt to pot with rice. Rice should just be covered by water. Stir often until nearly all water is absorbed. Add ½ cup boiling water and stir often 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. Add Parmesan (reserve a pinch for garnish) and stir to combine. Cover and set aside.

  • Step 4 - Sear the Steak
