  • Yield: Serves 5 (serving size: 1 cup)
  • Hands-on:40 Minutes
  • Total:40 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 5 cups unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 ounces pancetta, chopped
  • 1/2 cup minced shallots
  • 1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon white truffle oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

1. Bring stock to a simmer in a saucepan (do not boil). Keep warm over low heat.

2. Heat a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add olive oil; swirl to coat. Add pancetta; sauté 6 minutes or until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove pancetta from pan; drain on a paper towel. Add shallots to drippings in pan; cook 2 minutes (do not brown), stirring frequently. Stir in rice, rosemary, and garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add wine; cook 2 minutes or until liquid is absorbed, stirring frequently. Stir in 1 1/2 cups stock; cook 4 minutes or until liquid is nearly absorbed, stirring constantly. Add remaining stock, 3/4 cup at a time, stirring nearly constantly until each portion of stock is absorbed before adding the next (about 22 minutes total); reserve 1/3 cup stock at the last addition. Stir in pepper, truffle oil, and salt. Remove pan from heat; stir in reserved 1/3 cup broth. Top with pancetta.
