Try this non-traditional method of making a very traditional Italian dish. You’ll love how easy and delicious it is.

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, warm broth to a low simmer.


Heat a 6-quart Instant Pot to “Saute.” Add butter and oil. When butter is melted, add onion and salt, and cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes or until onions are translucent. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. 


Add rice and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes to “toast” the rice. You’ll see the edges become slightly translucent. 


Add wine and scrape all brown bits off the bottom of the pot. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until wine is slightly reduced.


Add broth and thyme, stir, and push down any rice that is sticking to the edges of the Instant Pot.
