Milanese-style risotto

  • 46 minutes
  • Medium
  • First Courses
This is the dish that symbolizes the whole Padana Plain; the local cereal simply flavored with saffron. It can be considered a first course or a side dish. In fact it is often consumed as an accompaniment to veal dishes, as in the case of the Milanese "Ossobuco".

Ingredients: Per 4 servings

  • ¾ lb Superfino rice
  • 1 ¾ oz beef bone marrow, (optional)
  • 3 oz butter
  • 1 ¾ oz onion
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 4 cups meat broth
  • 1 package saffron
  • 2 oz grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oz saffron threads

Preparation:

Step 1

Brown the chopped onion with half the butter, stir in the rice and toast it.

Step 2

Pour the white wine over it, allow to evaporate, and add the previously crumbled marrow. Cover the rice with boiling meat stock and continue cooking. Five minutes before the rice has finished cooking, add the saffron and adjust the seasoning.

Step 3

When all the liquid has been absorbed by the rice, but when it is still “al dente”, remove from the heat.
Whip with the remaining butter and Parmesan cheese.

Step 4

To obtain even more flavor, blend in a little veal stock. The rice should be creamy and “swelling”.

Consigli dello chef:

Instead of the ox marrow, it is preferable to use a good-quality meat stock.
