Beef Tenderloin with Parmesan Risotto
Traditional risotto is anything but quick and easy. We quickened the process using a microwave-to-stovetop cooking technique.
Why This Recipe Works
Traditional risotto is anything but quick and easy. The cook typically has to stand beside the pot, attentively stirring and gradually adding broth. For our quick version, we gave the Arborio rice a head start by microwaving it with broth and butter and finished it on the stovetop with aromatics and a bit more broth. If you add a seared thick filet mignon steak, you’ll feel it’s an occasion rather than a hasty 30-minute supper.
