Farro and Pear Rissoto

Submitted by: RED1157


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tablespoon butter
    2-3 small shallots, minced (about 1/3 cup)
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 1/2 cup farro
    5 cups chicken stock
    1 pear, peeled and minced

Directions

In a medium saucepan, bring chicken stock to a gentle simmer. Meanwhile, in a wide pan with straight sides, combine olive oil and butter over moderate heat. When butter has melted, add shallots and garlic and cook until translucent and fragrant, about 3-5 minutes. Add farro and stir to make sure each grain is coated with butter and oil.

Ladle in a cup of hot broth and cook, stirring continuously, until the broth is absorbed. Continue this pattern of ladling and cooking for about 20 minutes. At that point, stir in the pear and continue to cook, ladling in broth and stirring, for another 10-15 minutes until farro is tender and risotto is creamy.
