This is the first risotto recipe done in the crockpot that I ventured to make. Wow! it is so good!. No standing and stirring, adding dribbles of broth..... you get the picture. Anything to make it easier is all right with me.
With this slow cooker recipe, all you have to do is cook some onion, give the rice a quick saute in the same skillet, dump everything into the pot and leave the room for a couple of hours!
If you like risotto, but not all the trouble, give this recipe a try.
