Directions

  1. In a large saucepan cook onion and garlic in hot olive oil and 1 tablespoon of the butter until onion is tender. Add rice; cook and stir over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until rice begins to brown.
  2. Meanwhile, in another saucepan bring broth to boiling; reduce heat and simmer. Slowly add 1 cup of the broth to the rice mixture, stirring constantly. Continue to cook and stir rice mixture over medium heat until liquid is absorbed. Add another 1/2 cup of the broth to the rice mixture, stirring constantly. Continue to cook and stir until the liquid is absorbed. Add remaining broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until the broth has been absorbed. (This should take 15 to 20 minutes.)
  3. Stir in the remaining butter, cheese, and pepper.
