  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 3 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups arborio rice
  • 2 cups short-grain Italian rice
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 3/4 cups white wine
  • 3/4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 3/4 cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 pork tenderloins (1-1/2 lb/750 g total)
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary crumbled
Topping:
  • 2 cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nut
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted

Method

In large saucepan, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic, mushrooms and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each of the salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until softened and mushroom liquid is evaporated, about 5 minutes.

Add rice; stir to coat grains. Add stock and wine; bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat to low; cook, stirring once, until rice is almost tender, about 10 minutes. Add peas and Parmesan cheese. Scrape into 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish.

Meanwhile, cut pork into 2-inch (5 cm) thick slices. With meat mallet, pound to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Sprinkle both sides with rosemary and remaining salt and pepper. In skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; brown pork. Arrange on risotto.

Topping: In bowl, stir together bread crumbs, pine nuts and parsley; drizzle with butter, tossing to combine. Sprinkle over pork. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Add 10 minutes to covered baking time.)

Cover with foil; bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until topping is golden, about 10 minutes.
