Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 slices (6 oz.) thick-cut bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups reduced-sodium beef broth, warmed

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives

Preparation

  1. 1. Warm oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and bacon and cook, stirring often, until starting to brown. Add rice to pan and stir to coat in oil. Pour in wine and cook until evaporated, about 3 minutes.
  2. 2. Mix 2 cups hot water into broth and stir into rice in 1/2-cup increments (let each absorb before adding next). Stir, adding more hot water if needed, until rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
